While I was waiting for the resin to set for the tractor build I had this flash for another shop truck.100_0255.jpg

since I wanted this one to be really low with the kit suspension, I chopped it up pretty bad. removed the louvers and sanded the door panels and seat.

I went with the wheels and tires from a 29 rat rod kit and painted them satin purple.

the flahead was wired, added aluminum water pumps and an alternator.

paint on the truck is finger nail polish, Malibu Girl African Violet.

Hey Richard,

It depends on the brand and type of nail polish, some I use toulene and some is alcohol, you have to read the ingredients on the bottle. I've had the same brand have different formulas, so you have to look closely.
