Help! I've been bitten by the modding bug! I'm finished with my first ever custom, my smart city coupe cabrio. It's not purrrfect, but I still love it.
Since the last post, I:
- Snipped the axles short, then glued the wheels to them (I knew the car wouldn't free wheel anymore, and that was okay to me).
- Added a towing hitch.
Lessons I learned:
- Snipping the axles works wonderfully, just I'm not sure of what kind of adhesive to use to glue the wheels back on. Alternatively, I can try the brass tube thing. Due to my OCD-ness with superglue, the smart's wheels do not move. I'm actually okay with that since it's just going to be displayed anyway.
- A smaller drill would have been better.
On to the pictures!
