Craig Clements "Head Hunter" : new project 4/16/14

16 April 2014 - 08:11 AM

Hello…….this is one of my new projects on the bench……. Craig Clements "Head Hunter"………Craig is good friends with Steve Scott owner and builder of the "Uncertain T`"………Craig gave me permission to replicate his 1:1 car………he started with a S10 Chevy Blazer and totally modified the chassis ……..Craig stuck a blown small block Chevy into it……..and literally hand made the body with Dominos pizza boxes ,cardboard and bondo and any other stuff he could find…... but,as you can tell it came out pretty sweet…….I will try and do my best on this build……this build will be kinda slow……..because,I am waiting for some TDR 3D printed parts that I should get in a couple of weeks for another build that I am building ……..then I will start that build too…….so I will be going back and forth with the 2 builds……....thanks for looking.
