A okay with me. I was going to hit you up about it in November and see you wanted to. Finding this cbp 5 years ago is one of the things that got me back into building. Super glad too, I've had a real blast each year building my stuff and watching all the talented people here build their's. Thanks for starting this cbp Rob! I intend to be apart of it for as long as I can.
Yep, I've used Mirror Chrome on a couple of things before and a smooth high gloss black finish is key. I'm in the process of polishing the body smooth, after that's done I'll start spraying the mirror chrome.
I thought full roll cages were for additional safety. But I imagine as Rob said it's mostly to keep race cars off the road Good spot Dennis, I didn't see that skimming through it back in Dec.- Jan. I'll put extra care into whatever I do for a roll cage.
Thanks fellas! Update time (finally) Got the engine situated and sprayed Flat Black then Gloss Black on the body in preparation for the Spaz Stix Chorming. The roof piece did wrinkle so I'll have to sand and re-spray that, Thankfully it's a separate piece from the body.
I believe it, everywhere you turn folks are looking a smart phone. Don't have one myself and I'm 26 haha. I prefer to stay focused on the task at hand and paying attention to what's around me when I'm out and about.
Nice work Larsen. Yeah it's always quite around this cbp until the last two or so months then everyone's in a mad dash to finish (guilty of that myself lol). Got a donor kit (Jeep Rubicon) and finally made it over to a hobby shop to pick up some styrene so I should be starting mine pretty soon.
Small Update, had to make a couple changes one was cutting off the round cylinders Revel had for the coil springs, made actual springs with some jewelry wire. I've also had to cut away the rear wheel wells so the street tires will fit properly and the ride height has been lowered a little bit.
The motor is mostly assembled, still got to do run all the wires and hoses. Thanks for looking!
With all the body work it definentely wasn't done for Father's Day but I did the body work finished and did a little mock up for him, he's liking it a lot.
Looking at it we both noted that it looked like it was sitting a little high so I'll try lowering it a little. That's next on the list as well as getting the motor finished and mounted, just remembered I still need to cut a hole in the hood for the blower.
That looks awesome as is Ray! Remember a little more can turn into too much. No worries Brayden, life is life and there's still 5 months to go so I wont mark you out just yet. Super busy as of late but I'm hoping to get mine going later next month.
