Here are completed pics of the Purple Edition BadBat VW Drag Bus! I only did TWO of these. They are hand signed and numbered underside of body. Smoothed noses…multilayer candy purple flames on lower sides with silver high metallic and black graphics coated with a dusting of pearl flake…reeeeally pops! Will have actylic case with custom graphics!
Quick peek at a multilayer flames custom convoy…one of one…detailed out!! She is a sweet one! Coming SOON!
Here is a side by side comparison of a stock silverado 4×4 chassis and the one I’ve just finished for the Blue Blazes edition one of one. Smoothed and polished bumpers, grill, side steps, front and rear axles/differentials, plus hand painted blackout chassis and drilled exhaust tips. Of course the most notable mod is the custom made rear drive shaft! Old solid block style “shaft” was drilled/cut/removed and ground very smooth so as to not catch the eye. Then two holes were drilled in chassis where the drive line should attach. Stainless steel tubing was cut to length and ends beveled/polished. It was then mounted using brass rod in each end. The tension holds the shaft extremely stable but still was given a drop of epoxy for lasting results.
I finally got all the BadBat-mobiles completed.
There will be at least TWO available as SINGLE purchase.
These will have special clamshell packaging.
Heres a couple pics of final product.
Watch for the sale link today/tonight!!
Well I just couldnt wait any longer to show this one off! Plus I just finished up the very detailed custom chassis..lol
The bus (except the BadBat logo on top.) Is ALL PAINT! One of one…candy blue and pearl blue two tone with custom mixed pearl silver flames. Also you might notice the side flames are shadowed which is also hand painted. Top is same design as the regular editions but is done with custom mixed silver pearl with fade and details to tribal bat of light charcoal. This is also the only bus in the series with vw logo on nose.
The chassis….well first it was HEAVILY POLISHED. The large exhaust brace was chopped up leaving a much smaller realistic brace. Notice you can see through all the way at rear of engine. This left an unsightly gap which was filled with epoxy and molded/sanded to the contours of the transmission housing. Looks much better! All three exhausts were drilled out and polished. Details abound on engine and chassis. Plus its riding on blue chrome 5sp.wheels, with silver stripe real riders…leveled..to lowest possible height and fronts narrowed (chassis) to ride inside body. Coming soon!
Finally!! Got the first set complete and will be in the store asap..but if you are interested in purchase…hit me up because they may go fast. Limited number available and it might be a few days.before I get the next set done.
Well I didnt make the before Christmas thing but will be ready for pre New Year! I still have some work to do but they are almost done.
Stay tuned….same BAT channel! Lol
Ok folks…here is the final in process peek at these…still need to detail the lights and final clear. Get ready!
