I lucked out and found the neon wire on sale for $4.50 at Target. so I bought 3 packs. The neon wire is made for real cars and is designed for 12v but it seems to work fine off of 9.6v. I am not finished with the paint yet I still need to paint the roof white and I might add some paterns or even a mural to the car. I also want to add some led's for the head and tail lights.

I saw the 58. It seems like wth 4 switches you would be able to do more. But anyway I jus want one. Maybe with some custimizations you could f,b,ss, and a three wheel on the 58.


Good work on the rims and lighting fx.

Speaking of the 58, It seems like it would be better to have the front hop ad back hop on the same switch. And take the flashing lights of to do maybe a side to side with the free switch.

Damn! that does look good!! ....They got a 64 at the Radio Shack up the street. They got a price tag 41 somethin on it. I asked the dude about it the other day...I told him that you guys on here were saying the are closing them out and they are supposed to be $27.00, so he goes over and has a dude behind the counter check it on the puter, and the guy goes " damn! ...you're right 27 dollars!"
It's not sealed, or anything, I think they used to play with it in there a long time ago. I started to open the box tonight while I was up there, but it was packed up to good, so I said the hell with it.... still got 41 dollars on it too:)

I forgot to mention that I’m also using welder flints as scrape pads on the RC 64. I know that I have mention this idea before but if you guys still haven’t done this simple mod then you need to go to your nearest hardware store ASAP, spend $1.95 and get yourself some welder flints. I guarantee you will freak out when you see the sparks fly.

I agree, the flashing lights are not a important feature and it would be cool to replace that switch with something ells.

Here is an update. I finished painting the 64 and I also added a neon sign in the back window, but I'm still working on the wire wheels and the LEDs in the head lights and tail lights. You may also notice the side molding which did not come with the car. I used plastic construction strips which I found at a hobby store, glued them to the body of the 64 then I just applied bare metal foil over the plastic strips.
