    Questions for building from scratch

    if i were to make my own kit just for the learning experience and to slap a cheap build together for the wife what is the best way to go at it?
    i found blue prints for projection, is this the best technique without having the car to mould and not buying a cnc that i cant even guess its cost. if not what is? would it be accurate? i think it would be fun and id learn a few things. lmk thanks

    Green do you still have your murcyie eieio laggo? If so, regardless how hard you try, that is going to best your best way to proceed. It might not be exactly what you want, but you have it, and it's sitting. Having been involved in Bartman's projects, I have seen the time involved, costs, delays etc and etc! It is a daunting task to start from scratch.....period!

    Just remember, anything is possible. If you want to do it and have the time and love to achieve it, do NOT let anyone tell you that you cannot do it. There is a million reason people will tell you not to do it, but you only need one reason to do it. Good luck and love to see the results

    Regards

    yes still have the merc but like i said need a coupe, if i build it it would only be to sell, i dont mind things taking time, i am not making it for anyone but me so no rush, it could take years and i dont care as long as it gets done. still not set on it just want the experience. so whats the best way to start. does the projector trick work?

    1. It will take a long time from start to finish......... trust me I had been working on mine for over 3 years and all I have to show is pile of parts and molds that I finished this year
    2. You realy want to do it otherwise it will just get put off to the site and you will never go back to it.
    3. No matter what everyone says..... keep on working on it


    good luck with your project and never give up
