bitschrotty bought this diecast model for a couple of dollar at a toy store

it didnīt really fit onto any chassis: front part was too small and needed mayor widening...

I am sure that was a huge undertaking to get it to fit. The after don't look bad at all.

wow. Good job. That's alot of work.

reminds me of when I did a hot rod. also a very tight fit but not nearly as many parts.

Congrats on a nice ride.

That's the first street rod conversion of a Mini-Z I've seen that looked right. Your friend did a great job!

not this time: these are foam tires by Bitschrotty... although I could definitely cast some if needed ;o)
