I found a good way to simulate a torch cut edge is to drag the edge of the sheet plastic perpendicularly across 120 grit sandpaper. This leaves the edge nice and rough with visable cut  marks.
Why is the plow green? Zombie fluids?

Why is the plow green?
Because it's yellow? :mellow: :lol:

Instead of sandpaper I use a jewelers file for edges of 'metal' because that leaves a nicer pattern.

OK, greenish yellow or yellowish green?

One or two questions:
1) Are you going to have the plow 'stand off' enough to clear the hood when it swings up in it's 'normal' travel?
2) Are the winshield wipers going 'Bye Bye' seeing as there is no windshield glass?
When it was in green paint it looked like the old CUVs (Civilian Utility Vehicle) you could get dirt cheap at military auction. I'm liking this look. The basic Forrest Green paint and a badly masked, similar but not perfect color match 'hose job' of painting over the military markings on the fenders and doors would make it look the part.
But it is your project. Carry on.

Couple of answers  :mellow:

The plow is welded in place. It's the apocalypse. No time to come up with engineered pivot points. There are scavengers on the other side of the garage door, and they want my flesh...

I'm in a hurry. The wipers are not in my way, so I leave 'em where they are.

It was never green.

I meant just set father out to allow the hood to open.
I think your camera or lighting has a tendicy toward making things green. (Reply #5, photo 2).

It looks yellow to me but, man, it must weigh a ton & a half! :blink:

Cool build, by the way, Mr Sticky Fingers!

I am liking what he has done so far. Just my inquiring mind asking silly questions.

So is there going to be a hole or holes in the bed front to suck air into the radiator? How detailed will you be going on this build?
