When in Doubt... Elbows Out.

The custom rods finally got picked up this morning to go to their new forever home. Before they departed I managed to pop out one more to make for a funner set. She began life as a red Tomica Morgan Plus-8 that I’ve had forever. I only had a few hours to throw this together so maybe she’s not as cool as if I took my time. The silver paint nozzle clogged and left a spattered paint job but I just clear coated over it anyways. Looks like galvanized metal I thought... or aged exposed aluminum. I think the Plus 8 looks almost at home hot rodded out. I certainly want to have another go at making one.

All my customs roll but this one is a tabletop only car. The bottom chassis had to be filed down ensure she rolls.
