Oh yes. I have decal ideas.

 


I do think that I have finished the interior. Scratch built things like 2 Sun tachs, console, fire extinguisher, parachute release lever, if you look real close, you can see the return spring beneath the blue cable, trans and throttle cables for rear engine, Moon Big Foot pedals for both gas and brakes, and a Plastic Jesus and Madonna. After all, it is unsafe at any speed.

Sadly, the Plastic Jesus hit the windshield and had to be re-located to the console.

Real nice job and idea. By the way do you have the decals from this Hairy Hurst Olds? Need it got a buildup of this car but no decals.

Mike, I'll do a tute.

 

John, send me a PM with your snail mail address.

 

Detailed the drag chutes and made 16 zoomies.

WElp,Don, I ain said nuthin caz I was waitin ta see this beast borned! An BORNED it IS!!! EVERYTHING is RIGHT ON bro! Looks like it rolled outta some custom speed shop back on Woodward Ave! I think the ONLY reason din't nobody say nuthin about the little Plastic Jesus an Virgen Mary dolls is they just TOO flabbergasted!  Personally, I like 'em. Didja make them or buy em? If so where caz just like the car, they's too cool too!!!

I thought the Plastic Jesus was original. However, since no one seems impressed, have you guys seen this done before?

I love the plastic Jesus, made me laugh out loud.  New to the forum myself, so, I didn't know if every fifth model on here had a plastic Jesus and now I know better.  I applaud your originality.
