Default Ultra4/KOH build of doom

Ok so I've been building this forever and I thought I would finally post this up. And I'll let the pics say the rest:


Pics of my awesome steering hehe..

eventually I will make the aluminum piece 1 clean piece, rather than 2 ugly ones


then I came up with the awesome idea to use bent thumbtacks for some scale mirrors.




Eventuall I will ditch the flat irons for something a little more skinny. And for the interior Im going to use a wraith interior.

Looks good man. Black and white always look good or go something a little more contemporary like turquoise.

I made it myself out of some lexan I bought at homedepot, I first cut all the pieces, superglued it together, filed the edges smooth, used some jb weld to smooth out theedges where the pieces are joined together, then jb welded a piece of 3/16 brake line cut at an angle to a washer (for the fuel tube thing), and lastly painted it red and used aluminum tape to simulate the straps



Also I know its hard to tell but no one noticed my flared fendes lol..
