Since my wife is pregnant for about nine months now, I thought it was nice to make a shelfqueen for my son’s bedroom.
I’ll try to give you a walk through the project
At first I didn’t know what color it had to be, but it’s pretty obvious that it should be blue….
Right from the start I measured out a Rockstar star on the roof. This was going to be the second color of the car, grey.
Forgot to post it here but i finished the body a couple of weeks ago.
And it survived the first round of D1:10 without losing much paint :P.
Bought this PS13 body secondhand last year (yup another recycle project), my plan was to make it a show body but it’s a little rough. So this will be the competition body till i finish my new body (Haven’t bought/received everything yet so it won’t be done in time ;))
How i received it:
After removing most of the decals and cleaning:
Decals still visible after removal
I know Nissan never did this color combination but i only had these colors laying around
Added some details and fixed the paint on the front bumper:
This is my temporary competitionshell for 2011. Its a secondhand body I bought from Owen that I have completely wrapped in two tone glitter vynil. This vynil is very stiff, so I had to do every panel seperatly. Still it has quite a few creases and not so very nice bits, but since its just a bash shell I don’t care.
This is how I bought it
I have removed all decals and the rear widefenders. I also removed all the tape and glue from the inside. Then I started wrapping it in the vynil. I have also added the usual detailing like wipers, mirrors, exhaust, hoodpins, FMIC and piping and panellines. The last thing I need to do are the front buckets and the spoiler (and maybe a cockpit set..). The spoiler has been made, but it hasn’t been painted and properly mounted yet.
Pictures as it is right now
This is one of the three ex-Owen shells that will be featured here soon
Drift days are fun. A lot of fun actually. But the day after mostly sucks, especially when the drift day was in a big event hall. Your chassis becomes so dusty and dirty!
But at least my ‘new’ drift body survived. Just a few scratches from driving to close to another car.
