Got some time to work on the Rat Rod today. I?m trying to finish up all the cab details so I can get it painted.

Made a little progress covering all the rusty holes in the floor pan with filler pieces (street signs!). Still have more to add to the interior, but need to wait for the paint to dry.

Got the lower interior part pretty much finished. I still want to add scale hardware to the street signs to make it look like the lot were screwed or riveted down.

I also got the cab finished up enough to start adding paint. Still got a few more layers and colors before I start wet sanding.

Made a lot of progress on the cab paint and patina. I was also able to make a stencil for my logo. Now I will have an official work truck.

Got some more pieces added and test fit it back on the chassis. I cannot wait to see this one finished.

This has to be one of the sweetest right looking Rat Rods done to date.
Less "joes" awesome builds too.

Love the polished Patina man.

Awesomely done sooooo right.
All the details your bringing makes it that much more too.

My eye's are happy.

Thanks so much, I?ve always been a fan of the polished crusty patina.

Holy hotrod - that is madder than a box of frogs and the detailing is spot on!. Nice!

Never actually seen a box of frogs, but I guess they would be pretty mad all shoved in a box. Hey, thanks I am having a lot of fun with this one. Its been too long since I was able to do anything past just build and prime a body. Sill got a bit more details to go before finishing up.

The cab is finished. I got the windows in, including the vent windows. There is a air intake vent that was made and glued on the cowl. The wipers were finished and glued in place.

Four LEDs were wired up and placed in the cab. Two of these are for the headlights and use warm white 5mm LEDs. There are two 3mm LEDs which fit into recesses in the dash. On top of these are printed gauges which are glued to thin styrene and clear coated. It gives that backlit look.

Next steps will be sorting out all the issues on the chassis.
