Custom Built Hotwheels- The second attempt.

Had so much fun the first time I thought I'd try it one more time.  Got a little overboard with this one though...  you can see a ton more pics here:  http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=880643&page=3

This one I'm entering into a "competition".

Dang purple paint was a royal pain to get off... 

Made some beds,

and got 'em sorta fitting...


Sort of how it'll sit.






Trying out all kinds of new things on this one... The thumbtack air cleaner is probably my favorite so far though.  Have a long ways to go still, and not much time to do it.  I entered this one in a "competition" just for fun.  Not planning on winning anything but I figured it would keep me motivated to finish it.

For gluing bodies together I use JB Weld, the quick set kind. It also makes a great "bondo" for filling in and smoothing things out. Files off very easily.

Cutting doors and details- use a jewelers saw. Can be picked up cheap on ebay, but takes a lot of patience and practice to use.
