Where are you getting the bodies from to do your awesome work? You do some really cool modeling/ RC'ing/ Volksrodding! I would like to get into what you do in the future and any help now would shorten up my research then to get into it. Thanks for any help.

Not only do they look cool, they look fun! Buzz those around any car show and everyone will smile! They just put you in a good mood when you see one of those ripping around a yard or parking lot.

I honestly think that this could be a marketable hobby. Your creations are done well enough that you could build replicas of people's cars. I would buy a model of my car if I had a good volksrod!

Nice of you to say. I guess there is no harm talking to anyone who is interested just to get a feeler.

Hey thought maybe you could use this as and idea.Uni Posco makes a paint marker in acrylic enamel in like 34 colors, an in different tip widths, might be and easier way than using a spray can to makes your white walls,flames, an maybe a miniature pinstripe design using the very fine tip paint markers,.Heres the link if your interested.
They do need to be clearcoated because they are flat colors.

Going back to the black volksrod build. You guys gave me ideas for tail-lights. I also added front and rear window "glass"-slowly getting to completion.

Front and rear suspension are parts from a reissue Tamiya Sand Scorcher kit. Chassis pan is scratch build from sheet metal with bent up/brazed brake line for a cage. Added mounts for the rear shocks. Interior details/dash are scratch built from styrene and detail parts from my bin. Body is a toy RC Bug from Maisto that started off as full-fendered with a minor chop. I chopped the top and cut the fenders. Lots of added details, wheel wells, etc out of sheet styrene plastic. Runs off a 7.2 V battery (behind the seats) from a junk drill I bought at a flea market. It's cool cause I can use the same wall adapter to plug it in and charge it. Some very rough in-progress photos:

Oh, right, and pretty soon you'll be posting that you solved the Hi/Low beam solution, but the horn is too weak.

I got the headlights on but they do not have the high beam function-as a matter of fact, they do not have the low beam function, either!

It looks like that left rear tire could use a little air.
