My -54 Ratlook & -55 oval

Post by SuperTrigger » Thu Nov 03, 2005 6:46 am

Hell yeah!

Edit: changed the topic name from My new (very old) -54 Ratlook oval

Ibought while ago two ovals -54 and -55 and now I'm starting to rebuild that older one...:) Plans are clear. First I restore floorpan to TOP condition and make some lowering to front end. For body I planned just to weld spots that is needed to weld, no paint job... Ratlook rocks!! :twisted:

Engine will remain as secret for now...;)

here is some pictures of it...

I try to keep gallery upp to date incase someone is iterested to check it out time to time...:)
