Cool... Love the welds on the roll cage. Is this from a kit or did you do it? If so, how? Nice metallic finish on the cage as well.

GBK is right on the money! Your build is also "Right On the Money". Just too COOL!

We all should be as imaginative as you are.

hey, thanks for the replies. yea, the roll cage is made from evergreen plastic, heated over a flame and bent. the welds are just the testers glue. the tubes are fish mouthed to fit good. the silver paint is that paint you can buy that the top of the can is real chromey looking and when you spray it on it's real shiney but, if you put clear on it, it turns to a dull aluminum shade. i found if you put it in a dehydrater for a day or so, it stays shiney, as long as you don't clear it.

yes, i do seem to have a weird imagination. just check out my other builds. hahaha

Truckster rods rule! And now I can say that drag trucksters rule as well! I built a '53 Ford "F-Bucket" rod, inspired by 1:1 rat-rodder Ian Roussel. Feel free to check it out:

That's the link to part one of the buildup, but part two is posted on there as well.

ryan, i have seen yours before and i like it! love the door panel and the watch thingy for the gas cap.

chuck, yours is too cool. i seen a 1-1 something like yours but, as we all know, they are never the same.

isn't scratch building a blast!! thanks for the replies. i don't build contest good but, i like to build what pops in my head. a lot of the time it's not for everybody so i just build for myself. glad you like too. gary
