Surfite revisited

Recommended Posts

My current project is taking a dip in the Purple Pond.  This gives me a chance to do some repair/maintenance on past projects.

I built a Roth Surfite last year and couldn't stand the skinny kit tires for beach use.  I know that's the way Roth originally built the car, but why larger tires on the rear of a front-drive car?

Since I customized it a bit before, it's not an exact replica. So I found some Lego wheels on Amazon. I didn't want to steal some from my grandkids.

The kit wheels are in the foreground.

Here's the full kit ensemble.  Includes three surf boards, Tiki hut and Ed Roth figure.

The car is really small, so a lot of delicate detail work is necessary.
