    Looks great, can't wait to see it finished! Nice paintjob!
    I am especially looking forward to see how you weather this one. I am planning to do some weathering Article: 1/4 Scale Rat Rod Project myself someday soon,
    and I am still pondering what method to use. I heard that using hairspray as primer Article: 1/4 Scale Rat Rod Project to make paint scratchable works well.

    Hi

    I'm not sure if anyone is still following this thread, but if anyone is I have some very sad news.
    David passed away in May 2015 and never got to finish this build.
    I didn't know David, but after stumbling across a facebook ad for some car parts, I had the pleasure of meeting his wife and veiwing this model as well as some others David completed.
    A google search of 1/4 scale hot Article: 1/4 Scale Rat Rod Project rod pointed me to this thread which I have greatly enjoyed reading, so much so that I felt I needed to join up and make this post.
    I will see David's wife this week and with her blessing I'll share some photos of this coupe and some of his other work soon.

    Its not as finished as it looks. no interior and mostly just sitting together, this is how David left it when his health started to fail.
