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.
“Subtle” might mot be the best word for this car, but the two-tone was intended to be subtle. The fenders at purple flake over a black base, and the body is purple flake over polished zamac.
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.
And the selection is good. All this was $14.
A couple detailed Matchbox in the sun.
Got “paid” for my Datsun wagon gasser. The KISS ‘59 chevy is going to get striped and redone.
I had fun detailing and wheelswapping this Track Manga. And giving it a proper bosozoku exhaust.
I’m trading this Datsun wagon gasser to a local diecast vendor. Not only does this protect it, but it uses up one of the pile of these M2 cases I have hanging around.
Finally had a nice day, and got the hitch installed on Project Colony Ship.
A co-worker of my gf asked her if I could restore his favorite childhood matchbox. She sent me pics of it, and it turns out to be an error car!
