Here is my new project. A 1932 ford sedan rat rod. I decided that instead of cutting the whole roof out, like most rats. I am just cutting the skull out. I started with a stencil of the skull i wanted to cut out.

Very cool work. The only suggestion I have would be to somehow disguise the thickness of the roof that you can see in your last photo. Either do some sanding from inside the body, or paint the edges of your cuts with flat black.

Hi,

Excellent idea with the roof and it looks really good. I'd go with Tom's suggestion to thin the roof from the inside as well.

Like the paintwork you've done - it gives just the right amount of character.

Cheers,

Jim

whow came out awsome !! really love it ..

the thickness of the material is a slight issue yes , one option would have been to cut the design out of thin styrene and work that into the roof like a square with some bracing inside and flatten the seems so it was one with the foof again .

that way it would have looked like sheetmetal ..

maybe a idea for next time ?!!

still really digging it

very cool. You did enough details without overdoing it! The roof came out nicely too. Glad to see you managed to disguise the edges of your cuts
