I like where you are going with this one. I really think they are more interesting when they aren't so shiny sometimes. B)

I used the salt technique bud,primed the parts in a rusty colour then i matte varnished them after it had dried,then i used an atomiser and lightly misted the parts with water then sprinkled salt on,let that dry off then i top coated over that,just a couple of light coats of paint,let that dry then just brush it off! I left it for a day and i then went in with the sponge and added some more rust effects then gave it a light wash! Hope that helps man :)

I'll give 'er the thumbs up! I especially like your seat cover. How did you make that? Where did you find the fabric with the stripes in the right scale? Very cool. I also like your black pickup bed floor. Note that Chevrolet painted those boards black at the factory. Everyone who has done them in shiny wood has over restored / customized their truck.

One suggestion I could make would be to include the heater hoses. See them on the left side of the below photo:

Mine stand a little too tall though! There is also a hose from the power brake booster from the intake manifold.
