I have a small update today. Things at work and I was refinishing a piece of family heirloom furniture, but now back to work on this old clunker.
I got the interior done I wasn't sure where to go =with it. I wanted to do a more tattered seat, but that will have to wait for another build. Anyway here are the pictures

The seat and floor look good and mucky Max but I think the dash and door cards look too pristine!

It thought the same thing Al, so I dirtied up the dash and door panels a bit. This is my first attempt at something old and rusted and I fight this battle with myself because I think something on the truck should be shiny. LOL! I have always built cars with glossy paint jobs.

That looks much better.

Weathering takes practice Max. Just remember 'less is more' and you won't go far wrong.

Also, a great way to practice is to do a military vehicle. You do almost all the construction first, spray the base colour then do the weathering.

If you mess up, simply spray the base coat again and start over.

So many good vids on the web on weathering, in particular those on military vehicles. Many nice ones at military model sites too.

The thing with weathering is...you really can't overdo it and if you do, just put a puddle of mud around it.

You're doing great with this, it looks the part. Keep it coming!

The inline six banger now complete. The pics show it to have a glossy look to it. That only showed up in the pics, due to the sunshine I believe. It doesn't look the least bit shiny to the naked eye.

This is some great weathering Max, the interior floor looks fitting, and the engine is damn convincing.

Thanks for all the input guys! the chassis is pretty much complete, just the drive shaft and the exhaust system to install.

The stove bolt six banger looks convincing Max and it looks terrific in the chassis. Nice one.

Okay, This one is nearing completion. I have to say I am thrilled with the result  considering this was my first attempt at a weathered beater build. I learned a lot, and thanks to some good suggestions by all you guys I think it turned out fairly nice. I still have a few odds and end to finish up, like the upper radiator hose. ( the carpet monster claimed this one ) I still have to put on the gas cap and the drivers side mirrior, but other than those few details and a set of tags, this one is done. Yes that is a bullet hole I replicated in the rear cab glass. Sorry if this post is a bit picture heavy!

Real nice work! About leaving the gas cap off and do a black wash where the opening would be? Just a thought. I really like the bed, looks like it had a couple of major spills.

Thanks, The bed is covered with doll house flooring. Its real wood. I stained and then "stained" it. lol. I wanted it to look like someone had thrown some plywood down in the bed. I am going to put an engine on a pallet in the back I think.

I think it looks great Max. It has rust/dirt in all the right places. Love the 'wonky' Bowtie too.

How about stuffing an oily tag in the gas filler?

Thanks Al, I see you caught the crooked bow tie, I thought it fit the build. I am still deciding what to do with the gas filler cap deal, an oily rag had crossed my mind.

No gas tank cap. Drill a small hole and stick a rag in it. Looks great Max.
