Well, I've done some wheels swaps and various other small customizing things here and there but I finally broke out the dremel and did my first real custom or what I would consider a real custom.. grinding, painting, cutting.. etc. I had fun doing it but I don't have the patience or free time to do as many as I'd like to do.

Anyways, I took the roof off of the JL Falcon Delivery and slapped it on a JL 65 Nova. I wish diecast companies would make more wagons but I guess since they haven't I'd give it a try.








It was my first time ever using the metal foil stuff also. I don't think I'd do that again on a diecast car. I did a practice run on some spare parts that I had and it turned out great. Not so much when it came to the real deal. haha. The tips on here were very helpful though!

I have to mirror the others, that turned out REALLY well. You've got more detail than either mother-piece, and got all the pieces to line up. It looks like you passed your first patience test with flying colors!

First time...your crazy...that looks FANTASTIC! What a great concept, and the drag vibe is awesome. Thanks for sharing and do it again, you should be very proud of that build!

Thanks for all the kind words guys. My dad has been a drag racer since I was a wee lad and he builds his own 1:1 cars so I guess some of it rubbed off on me. These are just more affordable. haha.

BRIDE..?? hahaa.. I think I need a drink!

Yea, I'm not sure what I'll follow this one up with. It may take me awhile to get another idea. hah
