    New Bright 1/6 VW / Transformed to Grave Digger

    Got this at the local flea market for $35 complete. It was bone stock as far as paint when I got it. I detailed the motor some and added an old NOS butane lighter I had setting around for the heck of it. Trim down the ugly front bumper, and painted all to match. Runs great and doesnt look too bad for $35.

    OK tranformation of the VW 98% done. Waiting on some green LED lights for the engine compartment and red for the headlights and eyes in the ghosts . Let me know what you think. I cut alot on this chassis and fabricated the roll cage from the old ugly front bumper that came on the Tyco Grave Digger.
