Groovy Grader

A couple shots of my Groovy Grader I picked up the kit at the local flee market for $5. The decals were shot and the chrome tree was rough but all the pieces were there. I stripped the chrome from almost all the pieces then shot it with Alclad. The end of the headers was drilled out before it was treated to the Alclad. The bottom side of the body closed up with some plastic and body filler. I filled the engine block with 5 minute epoxy to give it enough weight to keep the front wheel off the ground, but then it will also set on all six wheels. To give the build a little character I added fuel lines and spark plug wires
