1933 Willys Coupe Rat

I did a simple build of this kit, and after much deliberation and head scratching, I decided to go rat with it.

The hood just seemed too.... false? I don't know the word I'm looking for but I just didn't like how it was all one piece so I "scrapped" it for a different build in the future.

This build has no glass! I've seen so many pics online and throughout craigslist and similar sites with Rats for sale and a good bit had no glass so I decided to go that way with my build.

The steering assembly, tie rod and shocks were a pain, but I finally got 'em in right-

I used the 64 decal from the black widow chevy, the champion spark plugs decals from the same kit, and the AHRA sticker from the Don Garlits Dodge Dragster decal sheet I somehow have in my decal bag.... I don't rightly recall where I got those from.

Here's the pics!

I'll probably do more to this build in the future, but for now this is where it's gonna stay! Thanks for lookin!

It does not have to be pretty to go fast. I think it looks cool.
