Oh yes, I like this a lot.  Is that an Ardun OHV conversion peaking out from under the hood?

Arden who? ...

thanks Gary. This is a one-off proto-what-if . OHV finned ala flathead. Centrifugal supercharger ala liberty air engine

check the build thread ... it explains some

 Awesome build! Love the idea behind it and the stance, color and overall quality are top notch!

Thanks again Larry. I never use this “under glass” forum but thought I’d post the final shots here.

LOL love the title, made me look!  That is extremely cool, absolutely love the dusty weathering, wish more people would try such a finish, especially for a rally themed vehicle (not just cars race off road).

thanks everyone .  I’m glad you enjoyed the pics. 

It took long because I had retina surgery on a detachment . Then had cataracts as an expected side effect from the recovery process. But I got full eyesight back at the end of January . They say you don’t appreciate stuff until you lose it. I can tell ya how much you really appreciate it when ya get it back!

Nice finish on the beast Mike !

Like the race pic ?

 

Thank you Bruce. And thanks for hangin in there with me. 

I’m glad you like the dust ... I found scraping Conte crayons (very hard pastel - like Leonardo used) using sienna, black, and white formed a dust that could be fixed with just about any liquid including plain water and a bit of gum Arabic that can be a washed off

                  you probably figured out where I’m going with this  ...   between your “grime” and my “dust” we could make a mint ?

WOW, that is fantastic - both in design and the build.  I've been looking for some inspiration for a hot rod build and don't think I can find much better than this.  Excellent in al respects.
