My Secret Santa from work has given me an amazing opportunity for my first body off and slam project...

Please may i introduce the lovely.... Oscar.





Firstly, i'm going to do a full body drop... SLAM it to the ground.

I've checked clearance in the front arches and i can get away without tubbing them.

Then, a full repaint.... Colours to be decided, maybe a patina'd VW parts delivery van.... Question

I'll retain the original 9v drivetrain. 2 speeds forwards AND back and leave everything else well alone.

I've given myself a deadline of..... New years eve....

I'll post more pics as i go along... Pass me the dremel! Very Happy


Seeing as we're all bound to get given something similar, lets see your efforts... Break your brand new toy along with me!
lol!

Dropped the front end fairly easily... the most time was spent "trimming" the body mounts down Very Happy
Arse end has dropped as much as it'll go... damn motor is a bit too tall.

Updated pics.
Prepping for paint now... Old school blue...
Patina'd the front end by putting a screwdriver through the front panel & scuffed up the bumper accidently with the hacksaw Very Happy

the black paint reacted with the white top half Rolling Eyes and the windows look shit need, another coat on them and a finer brush to finish the edges. might knock a bit more out of the height as the wheels don't turn to good
