    Both my daughters were asleep when I finally completed it, so they haven't seen it yet. Get some pics posted with them tomorrow, I hope.

    Thanks SO much. It was fun . . . most of the time.

    That's the same Pepsi can that I mocked up. A little artificial "weathering" and wa la.

    Reminds me of a Willys - ugly little rust bucket that just can't be stopped. Great job, and I like your vision.

    You get the TRUEST RAT award!
    I was a fan of this build from the start. I really think that it held to a true rat rod better than any other build out there.

    Your biggest prize has to be the smile on your daughters face. That looks soo much cooler than a Disney Princess bike! :p
