The Hoarder's yard

Post by RetrospectKustoms on Wed 10 Jul 2013, 3:29 pm

This is my "on again/off again" dio, meaning I work on it when I'm in the mood to. Sometimes I'll get a real jive and work on it for a few nights, other times, maybe only 10 minutes!!Mad

Anyways, all the fence is hand made, including the posts & rails. Cut, glued and painted every piece of that wood, seem to take forever!! Then added a sand base, then started adding greenery, cars and parts. It all still need a final dusting to add dust, dirt & grime, when everything is inplace. But this is where I'm at for now.

Cool.
On the old rims in the back of the truck, is it too late to drill out the bolt holes?
It's easy to do and really adds something.

Looks unreal mate.

How did you achieve that heavy rust on the old exhaust systems?

Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated. VintageJDM, for the rust I use real rust. Sometimes I mix it with pastel powders too.

This is real cool, I really like the patina on the the old Chev (it is a Chev right?).
Great junk work too, the rusty exhaust is very realistic bigthumbsup
