Progress on the 240Z Custom Mini-Car

Well, it’s finals week. Sadly, that means I don’t have a lot of time to post on here or work on mini-cars, or really do anything I enjoy extensively. But it only consumes two weeks out of my year, which makes it hard to complain. I did manage to get to work on my Datsun 240Z mini-car and have sanded it down. Once I get done with school and summer kicks in, I’ll be able to prime it and paint it! (Paint suggestions, anyone?) I’ve also got about six other Mini-cars I’ll be working on, including a Toyota 2000GT (One of my favorite cars and castings ever), a Toyota Supra, and even a Toyota AE86 Corolla hatchback (Also one of my favorite cars and castings).

I’ve attached some pictures below, let me know what you guys think of the sanding process! It’s incomplete as I do not take my Hot Wheels apart (yet), but it doesn’t really matter when it comes to priming and painting. I’m thorough in those categories. Needless to say, I’m going to put a lot of time into this 240.

I’ve also scrounged up some old pictures to get my Fly Fishing section of the blog up and running as well, so keep checking back for updates on that as well! Come mid-May I’ll be posting about my trip to Damascus, VA on the front end of Trail Days, which is an awesome event that everyone should check out at least once in their lives.

Stay tuned for more, check out the pictures, and tell everyone you know to start reading my blog. The more readers the better! More to come!
