You may remember when I bought two cars I liked, plus the ugly little Fiat?

Project: Screentime - First Post Project: Screentime - First Post

The reason I initially fell off the wagon was that I stumbled upon the Bluesmobile, seen in one of my earlier posts (link below).

WORK IN PROGRESS... WORK IN PROGRESS...

I decided to try my hand at a mild custom, even ventured to take a car apart (I haven’t done that in quite some time). I picked up the ‘70 Chevelle SS Wagon in an interesting livery, kind of a demolition derby theme going on. Not too thrilled with the red tires, but they will have to do. As of now, I’ve only…

Customs Training Hawl Customs Training Hawl

As I’m ramping up towards some more challenging custom jobs, both involving detailing and full-on repaints, I thought I’d take a break from buying more premium metal and get a few cheapies to use as trainers.

Easing into Customs: Honda Butts Edition Easing into Customs: Honda Butts Edition

Since I’m prepping for some more involved customs (which I will document here, naturally) I decided to start messing around with some cheap mainlines to get my feet wet. Perhaps you saw my CSL?

McLaren F1/P1 custom McLaren F1/P1 custom

Finally!!! I have been working on this custom for sometime and had to redo is a few times. I finally was able to finish the painting and get it detailed last night. The color I used was Tamiya TS-56. I need to take my Gran Turismo F1 GTR home and compare the colors. Over all I am happy with the result, I need to get…

das Fledermausauto das Fledermausauto

As I’m rediscovering both my diecast and hobbyist roots, I thought I’d ease into customizing. The mainline BMW 3.0 CSL seemed like a great place to start. Hot Wheels does great work with BMW castings, but they’re weirdly lazy about the front fascia. Between the kidney grille and the double-eye headlights, I feel like…

Test Fit Teaser Test Fit Teaser

The interior piece and the new window pieces are still jockeying for position, but it will all work out. The wheels have taken a beating during the process, but I have another set. I have another of the windows from which these were cut, that windshield is looking kind of smudged from all the sanding and shaping and…

Chrome, From A Can? Overdue Posting... Chrome, From A Can? Overdue Posting...

Not quite chrome, but really shiny silver. A while back I set out to compare all the different spray paints that purported to be chrome, or anything close. After the Molotow Chrome paint pen was shared by R32rennsport, the relativity of this test faded. I remembered it when working on a current resto mod, so I went back…

Hey Guys, I’ve been a bit busy this summer, but heres what I’ve been up to.

I know I showed it on Instagram already, but isn’t it much more fun with large photos?

Custom Majorette Mercedes Vision Gran Turismo Custom Majorette Mercedes Vision Gran Turismo

I’ve been having fun with Duplicolor metalcast paint lately, so once I opened up a Majorette Vision GT car I had an idea: spray metalcast directly over the factory silver paint for a deep candy red, add some sweet wheels and slam it. Here’s the result!

Custom Beetle! Custom Beetle!

As some of you know I owned a really sweet 69 Bug with lots of pating(cough cough CANCER) and less hope for like a hot minute. I never got to build it like I had dreamed and unfortunately had to sell it before turning a single wrench on it. Well, a diecast build will have be a proper substitute! Note, I think I went…

My lack of activity on here is depressing as I am simply working all day everyday with no break outside of eating and sleeping it seems. I decided that I needed to do a fun and less stressful build outside of the real motorcycles I have been doing and that a diecast custom was the perfect choice!

Didn’t somebody mention he missed all those customized 356 at LaLD? Well, I was lucky enough to receive an epic package from my logistics centre Springfield USA that contained...

It’s about time I posted something on Teutonic Tuesday again, so here is the latest custom I’ve completed, a Porsche 964 with a sunroof, in dark grey.

This is the best day to be in Amsterdam, with a city-wide party (really nation-wide, but I’ve only experience the Amsterdam party) going on from dawn til next dawn.

LaLD Engine Week: Forced Induction Friday - Porsche 934 RSR Turbo LaLD Engine Week: Forced Induction Friday - Porsche 934 RSR Turbo

How do you know a company is serious about racing? When they double up on the name. Rennsport Rennwagen (motorsport racecar). Hell yeah.

The S2K contest goes on. Thank you to my supporters. The S2K contest goes on. Thank you to my supporters.

According to James’ last post, I was eliminated from the S2K contest after the first round. Obviously I’m disappointed as I received an unbelievable amount of praise and support for my work. However, the contest goes on and I was not held in such high esteem by the voters and judges in the contest. I lost fair and…
