Hello everyone, I built this for the VW CBP.

Basically started as a factory stock die cast and got modified a bit, more details are in the CBP

In the first pic I thought it was under water..trip out man! Nice set up. Love the paint and it sits right..nice and low. Great hippy bus build.
P.S. The group's name was Canned Heat.

Thanks everone.

Ya this is super fun to paint like this. I've allready started to paint a mustang like this

Also I know how to spell canned heat there one of my favorit bands, I spelled it wrong to give it more character. The guy who painted it in real life wasn't "all there" if ya know what I mean

Just realized it's a die cast. Not like that's a bad thing, but I was going to compliment on the top chop.
