remember these shitty ass 78 monte hoppers. They were like a green blueish color. I think i bought it in walmart or the hobbie shop for 18 bucks. Any way after a little fun stock im converting that into this. A show stopper air baged hand made framed cruizer. I would enter this in my contest but i didnt take any before shots. Any way, its going to be white with some red interior, possibly with some metal flake. Heres a shot.... Had to cut out the trunk, and the sun roof.

i hate mitched match models. I usally stick to 1 24th or 1 25th... but i had this laying around and thought of sick ride.

Right now im constructing little air bags, air lines, gauges, coil overs, and 170 shocks all hand made. Which i will have it on my new site for sale.
Sorry cant give out my secrets yet for business. It has aloooot of work to make little shit look real, and im planing to have a full line of mini peices for cheep prices. Tank -10bucks primed, painted and smooth. or 8 for raw metal. the bags and lines all have to be priced yet. Thanks for the props.....

It aint a orange capsoul.
Its all metal, welded, fitted, grined, and smoothed, then bondo if needed, primed, and painted. over 3-4 hours in her, but thats the first one. the 2nd took about a good hour or so. I tried to look for supplies in Lowes and home depo, but came short, so i have to make this shit all by hand ...hey what ever for some more extra cash.

What brand of rims are these? I believe that they are made by pegasus...........i dont know what model www.pegasushobbies.com you will find them in the wheels section.
there some kind of Japenese brand. They came stock from those dicast lowrider bomb trucks. Trust me Pegasus wheels would look alot better than these.
