How do you get a good rat look going?

Is it simply a case of leaving it to natures cruel hand (for the authentic style), or can you set about it your own way, like different coloured panels, bit of primer here and there...

Im intrigued :ILU:

haha sweet!

What about some kind of rust inhibitor... like owatrol or similar?

Then it could get a bit rusty but still keep its integrity (even if the owner doesnt I: )

its harder to create a good rat than it is to make it shiny its taken me a year to get it looking this way and still not finished

I have another question. Is grey primer porus? Can it double as a top coat?

Too true Rod....a TRUE Rat look vehicle van/car/bike has to show the signs of a good hard life, many thousands of miles, roadside repairs with what ever is handy, a few war wounds picked up over the years, rust where there was once chrome and paint, most of all the vehicle should tell a story of a full and happy life but not neglect..T:
