    That will be under the heading of "fitting out", though...right now he is still at the ''blacksmith stage'' of the build.

    Can I ask you out of pure ignorance and curiosity, are these rivets or actual bolts and what purpose does it serve? Pure aesthetics or does it have something to do with the structural integrity? Looks good though.

    This is gonna be a long project. All I have are the LDV400 axels and some LANDY bits.....
    Gonna have to decide on a motor... my spare BMW318i or rebuild my 2.6 side valve with the Weslake 3lt head.
    Then I have to make the chassis & the Lightweight body panel.....
    Nice one! Looks like a lekker project.

    Rat Roadsters (Rat Rod) usually have a flat, distressed paint job.

    I’ve never liked the “rat” look..... it looks like a half job.
