as the number of us cup car owner's grow, i thought it would be nice it have a single place to see just images fo the cars ;)

i added a new album to the the overlooked Featured Galleries

CP Raceway Cup Car (http://mini-zracer.com/gallery/cpcupcar)

everyone should have permission to add pictures only. for those of you who have alsready posted pictures, please add them to the album as well ;)

don't forget to inlcude the owner's name for the pictures :p it's nice to see what car belongs to whom.....

i think so ;) works fine for me

Aha! d(oh)

Not too much into stock cars, but that's turned out to be a pretty sweet conversion....

If I link from the menus above, I get to the gallery fine. If I use the link in your post...nada.

And to keep from being COMPLETELY off topic for your thread:

I'd like to request some step by step pics of the conversion, actually. I'm interested in some of the specifics of kit to chassis mounting and body mounting....for some personal projects.

once I add a photo, can I edit the description?

arch2b
2004.09.01, 02:17 PM
hmmm.... the issue with that is if i enable that, then everyone can edit everyone else's description. you can type what you want and i can change it or if everyone is ok with the fact that everyone can do this (edit descriptions), i'll reset the permisson to allow it

cool if you just put my name next to my photos. just I added them and cannot modify them. I think I'm the only one there and if there are more, I'm sure you know what ones are mine by now :p

they belong to member 97J . I know who that is and have a feeling we will be trading paint in a couple of weeks (yes NINJA, It is just a saying) ;)

Gotta love Hammers Home Depot car... that's amazing work... simple yet stylish... cleanest looking CP i've seen I think... although i'm loving the silver that you chose for yours arch... shaping up real well... are you planning anything for the wheels?

for the time being i have a set of silver alloy oz wheels until the gpm nascar stlye wheels arrive ;) i have been told they have been ordered...

thanks, btw. i wanted something different... i know there will be a ton of black cars :p

yeah, seems like every second one is black... I didn't quite expect that at first... when watching nascar it isn't that way... oh well... hopefully we'll see some variety in the cars soon... maybe you'll start a trend :)

So what is my car? Chopped liver? LOL It is not a Chevy, nor BLACK!

Just pulling your Chain!

Have a good day, mine will be preparing my house for hurricane Frances, even tho am on West side of Fla. we will still get up to 70 miles wind if it cuts thru the state.

Fun, and I gave up Earthquakes for this!

i don't think i'll start a trend as stand's and paul's cup cars are very disticntive. you got to love the wheeties, that took some skill :p one color is one thing but to do that requires some real talent. love the dodge btw ;)

StandonIt
2004.09.03, 09:47 AM
Yes I agree, That Wheaties car looks great, mine was just a down and dirty, what can I do quck! LOL! But I love doing concourse style of work, so am planing on getting another body and doing something more involved as a paint scheme


Oh Arch are you guys going to carry the car in the shop here?

What about a body that would be GTP? with this chassis conversion it would sell like hotcakes when the rest of the MiniZ world finds out about it

arch2b
2004.09.03, 10:00 AM
carrying the cup car in the shop is being looked into ;) right now cp isn't really keen on the idea though. it's their product so it's their decision :) we just wnat to assure cp that they are welcome here ;)

the shop is also looking into other body styles as well ;) there are many 1/24 bodies out there, it's just a matter of seeing what works and what doesn't. any experience in the matter would be appreciated however this isn't the right place for that discussion ;)

Actually, it was a lot easier that I thought it would be. Did it in one day. I was out sick on Tuesday (broncontis sp?) and started this "project" that morning. While at the doctors I let the Blue color (3 coats) dry. Got home and took off the tape that I used to mask off the hood. Then painted the orange. again used 3 light coats (the orange is the worst smelling paint I have ever used!!) Let it dry and then took all the masking off, trimed the bottom and wheel wells and then put on the decals. Thanks for the comments though :D . Helps make it more worth while :cool: .

I have another idea on a car I want to paint. Unfortunetly the site that Arch posted has not returned any of my emails yet. I need some custom work done!

arch2b
2004.09.03, 10:28 AM
hmm... i emailed the amigo's twice in one day and got replies from both the same day.... i emailed the guy on the top of the list though....

PAULANGELO
2004.09.03, 10:45 AM
I emailed him and then the 2nd one. Oh well. I'll try again.

2004.09.03, 10:51 AM
here is who i emailed
sam01contact@yahoo.com

We don't have those 2 sheets available, but If you want, I can do them for you as a custom order. I charge $20 for the artwork, and after that, you would have to pay for have the files printed. A friend of mine (Les) can do it for you, and I bet he would give you a good price. (printing is listed at $15 somewhere on the site) it's more than the $8.50 cp charges flro slixx decals but when you want that personal custom touch, you have to pay the price ;) none of my custom bodies were cheap but all are well worth it when they are done

As to bodies, I put a 4 and 1/2 inch Nas truck over the chassis, and it just Fits with no overhang in the rear as the CP body does. I then put an 1/18th scale Mini T body completely over the CP stock car body and chassis. So finding Bodies will be a challenge. I am going out to Ca next week so will hit up some of my sources there and see what I can come up with. I am also going to contact Rick Jordan who was the driving force behind the Bolink bodies. So maybe we can get diff bodies for the CP chassis, like Nas trucks too!

you might want to check into the squat lexan bodies as well as other 1/24 manufac.'s

PAULANGELO
2004.09.03, 11:04 AM
As far as the trucks, Rumer has it that CP is going to be getting into that too! :eek:

arch2b
2004.09.03, 11:14 AM
do you think you could get them to confirm this info?

StandonIt
2004.09.03, 11:15 AM
Cool, that would be great if Eric came out with Nas trucks!

We have had that talk before Arch about the Squat bodies, no one can obtain them, as it wasnt popular when they brought them out, so they stopped making them. I belive that you or MiniZ told me that in a post many moons ago! LOL

2004.09.03, 11:28 AM

I must admit, I have not seen a bad job on a cp car yet, and that's remarkable...

If I was CP raceway I wouldn't sell my product here as it would take away from traffic on the site and for my other products, but it would be nice for us to get it here... either way though, they will sell...

want mine... want mine... want mine... :o

PAULANGELO
2004.09.03, 11:54 AM

Seeing how it is election year, I will say the following "I can neither confirm nor deny the possibility of getting truck bodies for the F1 conversion" that being said, When I talk with Eric, I'll see where he stands on this. :p

StandonIt
2004.09.03, 11:59 AM
OH when you do, mention that a lot of people around the wolrd in the MiniZ F1 camps have been looking for good lexan bodies to replace the F1 with, IE the GTP, Trans Am etc. This could be a very viable market if he chooses to do it. Plus I have some contacts that I would forward on to him for alt body Manf. If he needed it.
