I think this is beyond what you were wanting but I came across this on Instructables a while back before I started my CK. Google "Adult Power Wheels Racing Army Jeep"

Hello guys, well, the end is in sight ! My little princess has driven the baby bug for the first time under it's own power, a few snags to sort out but it performed really well.
I've stripped it down to fit and finish the panels before the paint, which is on order. But as usual life gets in the way, the storms we had last week toppled one of my palm trees and smashed the pot so I can't find any pots big enough so now I have to make some from decking.
Also got a new bike that needs riding so we've been racking some time up on that.
If I get time I'll get some pix of the painting.

Best regards Mick

In reply to # 26933 by Carpntir Hi Michael. I just love that Jeep and want to make it for my grandson, do you by any chance know of a place for the body dimensions of the Jeep? I’m a builder, cabinet maker and have built several small boats. Would really like to make this.
I’m going to do electric I think although gas could be a possibility....

Looks Awesome

Hello, Roy!
Maybe to try something bigger that could be used by adults, too - with plywood monocoque unit of chassis/body:




... and, their website:

More material, more work, more money - but, more family fun too?

Ciao,
Zoran

Hello guys, sorry I haven't kept you up to speed on the Bugatti. It's been mainly the weather thats kept me from getting on with it but I haven't been idle. I joined another forum called Allmetalshaping .com and got the idea from them to make a thumbnail shrinker, It's a cracking tool and would have saved a lot of work on the boat tail section, I will definitely be using it on my next project.
Anyway back to the Baby. It's had two coats of etch primer and one top coat, I'm using an enamel paint and you have to wait 16 hrs between each coat so here's some pix of the first coat.
I've only got a small garage to paint in so I had to mount the car on a lazy susan turntable but it works perfectly and I can stand in one spot with the light behind me and just spin the car.

Best regards Mick

Looks great! There should be a flash point on that enamel, like recoat in 10 minutes or after 16 hrs. The flash point is when it just reaches tack, that way your new coat won't run.



S'all for now!

Thanks Victor, the tin says within 30 min or after 16 hrs, I didn't know about the tack point, it makes sense now. I'll give it two coats tomorrow if the weather allows then leave it over the weekend to see how it looks.
I've learnt a lot about spraying this last week, I had problems getting the etch primer to spray then got myself a viscous cup to thin the paint to the right consistency now it's a dream

Stunning work Mick, look forward to seeing your next one. Are you going to Shelsey Walsh for Bromyard on tour on Sunday? May well be some inspiration cars there.
