T'rantula rebuild

Post by DeeCee on Sat 02 Jan 2016, 7:43 pm

Well, 1 day off so far this year, that's enough, back to the bench.......
Pulled out this old Trantula body, that's all i have, but soon found some wheels and tyres, and a HEMI!!!  Smile
Had to make some adaptors to mate the Hemi to the drag box.
And am planning a pretty wild Candy green paint job.

Great paint mate. To be honest, I didn't see the appeal in this but now the light has been switched on and I'm loving it.

Thanks Allan, Bruce, and Tim, to be honest i HATE these "show rod" things, but i do a build off else where every month, and this months theme is "show rods."

And this is about the only thing i had in the stash, and only the body. So i though , as it has nothing really going for it, a paint job might be the only thing that might save it,

oh, and a Hemi.. Smile

Thanks for the interest guys.
