The Luv Monster

Post by Adam Clark on Sat 20 Apr 2013, 9:21 pm

Well, I decided that the Caddy was a bit too detailed to turn dragster, so instead I raided the gravebox and pulled out the little Luv machine, and as I was still in a dragway mood, thought 'Why the hell not? Twisted Evil'
So, here is how I found it

And here is my wild idea! Twisted Evil drevil

Cheers guys,
Nah Mopar, I reckon I'll fill in the roof, only because it is very unstable plastic and the windows aren't the best.
And yes, the engine will be higher don't you worry about that. Wink I'm using the pontiac 421 Packet engine in this lil' beast Twisted Evil

Missed this update, that's looking better Adam Very Happy
As for the scoop, I've always liked the classic Hilborn scoop, but this thing has enough weight to justify one of those big ugly bug catchers Very Happy Then again, a pro street scoop wouldn't look out of place.

Hilborn wouldn't look too bad, and the idea of a pro street scoop was my original intentions. But dad reckons it'll take away from the car itself. (What does he know? Only got 30 years on me Razz byebye)

So I think it will get decided at the end, but ideas are taken into consideration

Adam...2 things...I haven't been following this thread, but keep finding myself drawn back to it to see what you are coming up with so I guess I should just commit. You are doing some interesting stuff here. As to the scoop and your Dad's advice, just remember that people get cautious when they get older. Ask him what he would have done at your age. Keep building.

Still been hacking at this one, small things to get it right, but not entirely photo worthy.
Got a base coat silver down today, but Can't think of any colours for the life of me. Razz So I've come to you guys for inspiration. Lemme know what you think would work and I'll take it into consideration Smile

ooooo thats nice ...please tho ...do a few burnouts for us and get the gloss off those back tyres!

How about a gold color on the front fading back to some flames down the side and leave it silver. Few small stickers on the doors so it looks like a dragger and hey presto. Thats my thoughts.

Nice work Adam !

The paint is down!! Very Happy 
Went along with DSF idea of purple, and I think it has come out alright, as you can see, I left the middle indent silver just to make it have that little bit more attention. Razz
I cut out a chevy logo in tape and stuck it on the tray, and chromed around the outside too.


Finally found a scoop to put on it too!
