Russian Snowmobile trailer (Full story and build up)

17 May 2015 - 05:55 AM

A long story about this build. It all started with a 1/24th die cast snowmobile I had. I built a sled deck for a Chevy truck I had built. I added some products to the deck that I had on my 1:1 sled trailer called Superclamps www.superclamp.net/

This is the original build.

Some pictures of the 1:1 sized Superclamps and you can also see the Superglides on the deck (they protect the wood deck from the skags on the skies)

This was my first time working with a Resin body. Used the Winged Express kit for chassis and cut out the side panels of the frame, not sure why, just to be different I suppose. Shoe horned a Ross Gibson McGee Quad cam engine in it. Not sure how manageable it would be to get down the track with that short wheel base. She would be one wild ride that's for sure.

Chevy II El camino style

Been a long time guys.I have been trying to devote some time to get back into the hobby that I miss dearly. 

 

I had started this build years ago. I wasn't sure I liked the path I was going down so I shelved it. I recently grabbed it and started to tinker with it. Made a few changes and she's done. The more I worked on it the more I liked it. Chassis is pretty much box stock (Used the Pro Street kit), I made some new front spindles to get the ride height I wanted (IMO ride height is EVERYTHING!). Scratch built exhaust, I actually used my lathe to turn some parts (steering column and cone air filter). Its about time I used it for the hobby and not work. The kit was supposed to have the high rise dual carb set up but with the cowl hood I made that wasn't going to work. I found an old Corvette fuel injection intake and she fit under the hood so went with that. Added spark plug wires, alternator power cable, brake line out of the master cylinder and scratch built a battery and battery box and added cables. 

Body mods include the obvious converting into a pick up. Lower body skirts were added, front air dame was scratch built. Front and rear bumpers were sectioned to be flush with the body. Rear wing was added to ad some length to the car.

It's kind of a mish mash. It's not a pro street, Could almost be a Pro touring. For sure it would be the coolest parts car in town (put a big NAPA ball cap on the roof). LOL Could fit a lot of groceries in it as well. :P

 

Hope no one gets mad at me for defacing a Chevy II :D
