Should be fun. Other than little touchups with pens, I’ve never tried a proper custom, so I’m looking forward to this. The base car was the Miss Piggy ‘59 Chevy, given to me by R32Rennsport sans wheels when he started his mission to hoard all the Real Riders in the known universe. It’s been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks, begging me to do something. So on lunchbreak, it spent some time in the blasting cabinet, followed by the wire wheel, then some steel wool. The paint was incredibly thick, too bad it was such a lame scheme! R32 has a set of wheels I have in mind for this, so we’ll see what the finished product looks like.
This is what it started as:
This is as it sits now. The casting is really impressive, actually. There are a couple of flaws here and there, but the detail holds up well in the metal.
We’ll see what happens, but I’m looking forward to sharing the finished product, good or bad. Have a great weekend!
