Took a rough Cyclone shell, stuffed some serious cubes in it, bolted on some swap-meet fiberglass parts, and made a rough and ready quarter mile machine.
Been wanting one to customize for ages. The two tone metalflake came out well. And i lucked into the perfect wheels.
I am working on rust repair on Project Colony Ship, however it is being slowed by my house painting project and a lot of rain.
I’m pondering buying this purple 2009 Honda Fit for $2300 with quarter rot and dents specifically to swap out the good rear hatch & rear bumper for my damaged ones.
Im repainting the outside of my house, which will involve scraping/stripping/repairing the 120+ year old wood trim. I’ve made a rule that I’m not allowed to buy new diecasts (especially expensive ones) until the job is done. Though i am still allowing myself to buy sub-$1 ones out of the dump bins at the flea market.
After 6 years of ownership, I’m finally getting some fresh paint on my house.
Cars with replacement body panels that are also damaged. Did you replace damaged panels with other damaged panels? Or did you crash it again in such a way you only damaged the parts you had already damaged?
Just ordered this shirt from Blipshift. Iy is back in stock for a limited time.
I may be a tad early, but i wanted to share the two lowered ice cream trucks I’ve been working on.

Started on the rot repair on the wagon, decided to tackle the worst panel first.
Showed my partner this $2500 ‘74 Hilux, and said I wanted it. Her response: “Baby. You have a type.”
Stripped this M2 Econoline and repainted it in two-tone metalflake green and metalflake silver. Then added some custom wheels.
Wrap the tire in plastic wrap, overlapping the sidewall, then you only have to tape up the edge of the rim.
Got a couple camper bodies, decided to make a few custom campers. The Datsun took a fair amount of cutting and stretching of the chassis to fit, the Mazda’s camper body snapped right on without even drilling the chassis.
This has not been a great week. I was home today recovering from having a tooth extracted yesterday. Took the wagon to the junkyard as the Fit’s axle is broken.
In my continuing quest to find a working radio for Project Colony Ship, i picked up an 89 lincoln radio, but it turn out the speaker connector is different.
The 70s were not a subtle time...
While I’m impressed at my stock Honda Fit’s ability to snap an axle, it is damn inconvinent.
