Default Sumo Micro Crawler Course

My dad bought a Sumo crawler last week and I finished up the course for it today. I started out with a piece of sheating and a pile of styrofoam, scrap wood and cardboard, added paper mache, texture and then some color. After about 8 hours of work I have a course a little under 4x4' , fairly lightweight and challenging but managable.

Thanks guys, it was a lot of work but it's a lot of fun. My neighbor mentioned building them for people but I think it would have to be $300+ to be worthwhile. My back is killing me from leaning over the thing all night.

I sprayed some drywall texture before painting and it's rubbing off pretty quick. One of the peaks the crawler tends to get snagged on is already torn. This definitely isn't a maintenance free setup. Still toying with the idea of spraying it with truck bed liner from Autozone.
