Rodriguez does Bonneville on a budget

Back story: Rodriguez had been telling the workshop boys stories of the old days when he and his dad used to go to Bonneville to race his old man's 34. This had gone on for some time so one day the lads decided they wanted some of this action so off they went to Rodriguez's old man's place to get the race car and hauler. Well they had both been sitting for a long while and the cancer had set in a bit, but what the hell, onto the trailer, hooked up to the old race team camper and off they went. Some call it rust, some patina, the lads just called it a hoot and Bonneville here we come.

Sending out a huge thanks to Dr Cranky for his amazing website, detailed tutorials ans inspirational models.

I really like it when weathering is subtle to the point that you see it but at the same time you don't. If that makes sense. And you have nailed that, well done.

That is perfect Salt Racer Ford! And I agree completely with Fred on the weathering. Even If I usually don't like weathering that much, but on this one it just looks perfect. Nicely done all the way, The Pickup, Trailer and of course the Salt Race Ford.

looks like you are ready to snatch the peddle from Cranky's hand, Grasshopper !

Excellent work on the weathering. It's obvious that you didn't just randomly salt the body, but focused on where the rust and weathering would actually be on the body. Nice salt job on the tires too.

I love the simplicity of the 34 coupe.
