Primer or flat paint jobs (maybe even painted with a brush) are the norm, and the upholstery may just be one of those old wool "New Mexico" type blankets thrown over the old torn seat. You would never find anything fiberglass, billet, or with power assist on a rat rod. The rat rod is all about fun and being able to drive your ride without worrying about rain or a paint scratch to dampen the sheer joy of running something you put together.
IMOA that's the true definition of a rat rod.
A rat is UGLY period..but fun Don't think about mouse engines or rat engines,or even elephant's here.
