    So glad I found this site. Great group of people! Building my first rat rod helped during a stressful and weird time. Proud of what I accomplished and already searching for my next build (which will be more authentic rat rod).

    Thanks man! Excited how it turned out and agreed, this 20+ year old easily has another 20+ ahead of it. Would love to think this one could get ratted a few more times.
