AEROTREC!
 
AeroTrec is going to be an Anti-Gravity Racer! This aerodynamic shape could also be made into a Submarine or a Bonneville Racer.

My goal is to make the AeroTech body even, more Aerodynamic than it already is...
 
AeroTrec is based on parts from 2 Olds AeroTech Bodies. This kit has the option of 2 different Body Lengths. I went with the Long Body Parts.

MIRRORING THE REAR!!!

 

I started with the top Rear Section and cut off half of the Section behind the rear wheel wells. I also cut the Donor Rear Section in the same way. Next I cut out the lower part of the body sides, so that the Donor Body Section fits in place as shown.

Another View...

The I cut the plastic around the Engine Compartment, so that it is flush with the New Bottom of the AeroTrec!

Very sweet.  I always thought it'd be cool to build the aerotech as a two seater.  Then my mind went to tandem seats, with a rear gunner ala WW II US Navy style.

NARROWING THE FRONT!!!


I used a ruler and marked the sides of the front wheel "Bumps" for cutting...

I cut along the lines with a Cut-Off Wheel in the Dremel Tool!
