OK OK.... how are you doing this!!? Some kind of dremel thing?
You must have a really steady dremel hand?
Unbelievable... Are you some kind of master sculptor?
Where else are you displaying your work?

Most of fiberglass bodies have the colour of gel coat.It is the low cost choice but :
1. there isnt brg colour for gel coat use
2. i want the best for this car , so i'll ask for a professional to paint it.

Maybe i'll use 2 bodies, one for race and one for the living room parking .

Vass


PS: i amass orders. 5 bodies to Lars

Incredible. This is for vaccuum moulding right? What scale is it? Do you have a chassis in mind for it? (So I know what chassis to buy! )

I still have dreams of a large scale drifter (electric of course).

Hey Foxy, tanks.

Nice to hear you again.

Its 1/4 scale, 115 x 52 x 29, 65cm wb.


I have design the chassis and the most parts.All are new, no tube, full alum.

Take your dreams and come on to a meeting.
