Hey Ace thanks for posting this, what an amazing bit of kit ........... Love this thing, I was reading the hot rod review and it performs well doesn`t it !! Totally outrageous, bonkers looking 37, and I love it ....... Lowlife ! !
Coming along great this Eric, keep up the great work.....Now a stupid question, if its a flathead V8 how come you only got three exhaust pipes each side Thought it would have four each side ??? As you can probably tell I don't know my flatheads much, im sure your probably right ! ! Lowlife ! !
You got a killer ride coming together here............ Loving everything about this, especially the bench seat, and that arm rest suits it a treat !! If you don't want to cover it all up, theres only 1 thing for it....... Flip up Body Keep it up mate, looking forward to more..... Lowlife ! !
For that sort of money I still think the engine block is great ! Sure it needs a bit of a clean up, but its also way quicker and more accurate than scratch building it. Im sure there are better printers out there that can produce something perfect, more expensive than most ( I imagine ...) modellers are willing to spend on something just to improve their models.... This seems a good, reasonably priced printer, which with a bit of practice adds to the fun of building. Im not having a dig at anyone here, just saying I think its a great idea if you wanna try it yourself !
Wow this looks crazy good ! ! Ignoring all the hi-tech stuff for a minute, I love the idea ! Four pot turbo lump was a great idea and the suspension fits like a glove... As for the gadgets im well impressed, looks like it has endless possibilities with the 3D printer and the silhouette portrait cutter would be very useful as you say....... Looking forward to more progress on this killer Cuda ......... Lowlife ! !
Hey Eric, man im loving this ! ! Gotta agree its too nice for a rat rod, more 60s show car if you changed the wheels ! ! Very clever using the cutter thingy for the chassis, it looks fantastic..... I enjoy your builds, have to keep an eye out for updates on this, and any future projects you come up with ........ Lowlife ! !
Hey Luke...... I remember this from the community build, an unusual car to lower but it works great ! Love the colour coded bumpers, smoothed door handles etc etc ! And as for paint, that black is just perfect, well done mate. ........ Lowlife ! !
Finally the bugs back........... Been wondering how I can fit the front screen and bonnet, and still have a dash that covers the engine, as its sits way back ! Luckily I got a 94 Firebird cheap, to use for parts and the dash is perfect ! So im using the 350z interior floor, the Pontiac dashboard and a cut down beetle screen Should work ok, im off to try it now so hears a mock up and I will show pics when its done...... Lowlife ! !
Hey Eric.......Don't know how I missed the WIP of this, just been back to go through it all... Amazing stuff, so many little details you added, and the paint is outstanding ! ! Just one thing, next time you build a model, and chrome plate everything, and add THAT much flake, add a set of Daytons eh ???? Nice one mate, looking out for the next one already ! ! Lowlife ! !
Cesar.......Hello my friend, glad to see you are still building ..... I was blown away with the pics, great work keep it up....And STOP breaking things, the chassis was bad enough but now the A pillars ???? Looking forward to more of the same......
Ive said it before I know, but this is one of the most inspirational builds ive ever seen ! ! Your attention to detail is just mind blowing Chris, cant wait for more updates mate this is fantastic
Lowlife ! !
