I used Zest soap...worked killer and smelled good in the man cave..ha. I learned it from MrMunster I think, could be wrong on that. Pop can sheet metal was the thread. Tons of possibility. And cheap and readily available. I also know what ya mean about adding weight. But for the pony's under your hood/bonnet.....I don't think that's going to be a problem, Ha. EDIT: just looked it up. It was Mr munster. He helped me out a bunch on it. "pop can Sheet metal is the thread.

with a sharpie haha



So Saturday morning was sunny and dry and I took it out for a spin. and I mean ''spin'' I blip the throttle and it does a perfect 720 flip and slides along the road on its face sadly no video or pic's of the aftermath but all I lost was a window and bent the door..... 10 mins later i tamed it and was wizzing around the street doing jumps and controlled wheelies

I need to find some street tires, spikes on the rear is to much grip and the front sand thingys are not enough.

anyway a couple of pictures of the detailing work, not a whole lot.













that's steering wheel, flexy mirrors, gear stick and windows. I will need to flick it over with the paint brush and blend it all together now it's in place, the front seat is good and close to the steering wheel, that is down to the battery tray. Not much I can do about it. Kind of looks like a touring car seat being that close

I am toying with making an engine for the rear but space is very restricted due to the can sticking out. I wont be doing a roof bar now as I get the feeling it will spend some time on its roof

Whats left.... Head lights, fuel cell (wire cover/ battery box cover) door card trims, skid plate and a few other bits and bobs. I need to tie it all together, it looks to much like bits just floating and glued to other bits at the moment..

that's all for now

Very cool. Man you have earned it on this one too. The bits and bobs make it that much more. Great job. Looks and sounds to be a hoot.

I got the lenses in, this way I can use very small LED lights that weigh nothing and get a huge light projection. These things are blinding!!



to finish them off I need to make the shrouds and paint them.

Next is working on it's back side. I need a can cover. 1 for protection and 2 as it don't look right on a scale (ish) build having an electric motor hanging out the back the same size as a house hold boiler!

so and engine cover it is..... nothing fancy as it will be covered in a cage and side panels, but just enough detail to peek at..

















It's going to be a 4 pot turbo engine, seeing as it's not a true sand scorcher chassis I think that leave me free to do what the heck I want, even if the layout of the components of this engine make no sense to anyone that knows anything about engines lol

Small update. I been putting the engine together. It's a very simple looking thing to hide the motor and add more detail



A small tailpipe as I don't to keep sticking it back on what with all the wheelies and that haha..

Now I am open to try new ways of doing things and I needed a good way to age/rust the tail pipe, i didn't want to just flick over with a paint brush I wanted texture with all the rust flakes so I painted the exhaust as sprinkled sugar over it



I then painted on the rust color paint. When it drys I flicked off the sugar that left flaky spots of rust in its place with fresh silver/metal paint underneath... you still with me? lol



it looks ok, just need to paint the rest of engine to age etc. I also made the distributor cap and put in the HT leads.. it's only running on 3 cylinders as I run out of red wire

oh and the rad is on.. a few bits to finish on the motor and it's all good to go

The first day of spring and what a day it is too! so nothing for it but to get out with my new (old looking) Baja Taimya Sand Falcon!

the plan was to get it all warmed up find some good corners and jumps and make a video... but something bad happened, like it always does on my builds when I show case them.. you see there was this little hill and made a perfect little jump you see......but the 7700KV motor proves to be very keen to get going

so I jumped the little hill but it kept on going up......and up until it made its way down ... to this





So I didn't get a chance to make much of a movie, or anything else for that matter haha.. but for the 20 mins I had it was fantastic good fun and I am going to get it up an running right away. but I will retire this shell o use as display only as it is far to week!!.. I will replace with something a bit more durable
