rat look varies in opinion, to me it should have its own patina that's evolved over a long period of time, personally I cant stand matt black and surface rust or forced rat look it just doesn't look right see the difference between the 2 photo's I've attatched, 1st car looks done and imho a total shed!!!, splitty looks O'natural and has its own "coolness" this is merely my opinion and I am no expert

Sadly I really struggle to get my head around the attraction of all this, to not be able to afford or have the time to refurb a car is one thing, to go out your way to make it look like it is on its way to the scrap man is well beyond my understanding...

totally get that, however if we all liked the same thing wouldn't life be boring  Wink to me a preserved car is cool, to others an eyesore , however to purposely make a car look knackered .............pointless! we have a Passat that comes to the garage that's like the Honda in the picture, TOTAL NAIL and REALLY doesn't do it for me, on the other hand we also have this little opel that comes in, my friend Alex owns it, it ran in 10 of the best last year and came 4th I think ,totally road legal and its now 550bhp...................AT THE WHEELS!!!! Shocked , lots of fun, i doubt anyone would expect it to go the way it does  Wink even though the car looks rough you would honestly bow down if you saw the work and engineering that's gone into this car, its reliable and extremely fast, body work was on the list of "to do's " however more and more power has killed his budget
