i just got a craftsman rotary tool and i have a wicked idea for a new model of mine (67' gto) inspired by the transform feture on the lowrider game. (hehehe) and im going to be cutting the body and such. i have some thin thin cutting wheels and other bits n such. should i risk maybe fucking up a body? or should i just keep the speed kindof low and use a steady hand.im going to be cutting the front and rear sections off the car and they will (hopefully) dance on z-racks. i decided to try out zip zaps motors, sinces there small and, um not lifting very heavy stuff. i will keep you guys updated n stuff, just gota new camera :biggrin: . cya and happy holidays

The cutting sounds like a cool idea, but I'd do it with a blade if i were you, The tool rotates so fast that sometimes it melts the plastic, and you got alot of work on your hands- just a heads up.
