32 Ford coupe rat rod - converting to street rod look

Postby VTECFOUR » Tue Oct 24, 2017 7:13 pm

Originally built my 32 Ford with a rat rod theme but thought I'd convert to a street rod look.

Starting off with changing rims to Sloting Plus 15 x 8.5 Arctic all around with low profile front and PG 21085 rear tires.

Stance works for me.

Going to re-paint in a dark metallic green.

Sprayed on Tamiya Racing Green and Metallic Green. Chassis's quite visible so that got painted too.

Came out more mid-green but it still worked out.

Headlamps and grille to come.

Headlamps, grille mesh and tail lights in place.

Just the front and rear windows and maybe an interior driver tray left to do.

Glad I did the conversion.
