As I stated in another project, I had purchased several Dash Hot Rod bodies at a great price. So this is the second project using one of the bodies. In this project I thought I would take one of the bodies and build a Bonneville Salt Flats Lakes racer.
I had purchased some Dash Hot Rod bodies at a good price and so the thinking process began. After some research on the web it became clear as to what I wanted to do. The great thing about this little project is I have several options as to what to build... a street rod, a dirt modified racer, or a salt flats racer. I will probably do all three eventually.
This is the second half of this project which started with a Dash Avanti body. I started with one of my resin castings of the Avanti modified dirt body. So I took the body and sanded and polished it in preparation for primer and paint. I then added the debris screen, which I made from a grease splatter screen from the dollar store. I also added the air breather that was made from a TJet chrome wheel.
I purchased a couple of Greg's Garage Lamborghini bodies. You can see more about Greg's Garage here. The bodies are not drilled, painted or have the windshield installed when you order them.But they have proven to be excellent bodies for Fray cars.
I had purchased some Model Motoring II Willys Gassers that were blems a while back. I thought I could use them in some projects. As luck would have it, I was crusing the webbernet and I found some race pictures on the ECHORR website featuring the "Willy's Extravanganza". Apparently you could modify a Willy's body much like the Dirt Modifieds in the 50's and 60's. Then run the car on a Fray Chassis. I thought this was pretty cool so I decided to try one for myself.
