  1. Thanks! I'm hoping to get them to market soon! Horror Trikes FB page Horror Trikes HQ
  2. Wow, just looked at carpartsmanual.com, that's a great resource! It has pretty much ever part
  3. Wow, do we have a list somewhere of part numbers and what they are?
  4. Thanks! Here are a few pics of the other prototypes I have. I think the lighting really adds to it!
  5. Yes, many possiblities! The zombie is a good one... I've already put ghosts and clowns on other ones. The motor seems pretty stout, I think the connection to the wheel is the weak point. I made one of those big wagons like this too, which is about 30 pounds. Yes, just one works fine. But it wouldn't bee too hard to get both to spin.
  6. My other passion is Halloween and all things spooky and artistic. So I spend most of this year making these RC controlled tricycles. I did all the legally required stuff (patent, TM, etc.) Hopefully I can begin to get them to market this year. I was thinking you could even put a cooler of beer in one of the wagons and drive it around like a tailgate haha. I am grateful for any feedback, advice, critique, etc. I have 13 prototypes at the moment. And yes, I basically invented them and figured out how to do it. Which is a skill I learned by working on cars! RC Tricycles (Horror Trikes)
  7. Haha that's why I always try to have an empty gatorade bottle on hand...
  8. Were those holes already existing, and you just added the elbow? Great idea and mod!
  9. NIce... looking great! What did you use for those seals? looks like 2 types. So this last pic shows that you need them on both the long lip and the "raised sections"?
  10. Ah ok. I wondered about the baking because I've heard if you don't bake it, you need to wait about 6 months for the paint to fully cure before waxing it. They do make special "wax/sealant" for newer paints though, but I like to keep that paint waxed and protected.
  11. Whoa, so you get a single can from PPG, and you just pour it in the spray gun and spray? Same for the clear, just pour the can in and spray?? Seems easy... Does it need to be baked to cure etc?? paint is coming out looking great btw
  12. I replaced my stock one years ago with the "locking" BMW cap (which doesn't actually lock...). It fits fine, and the lock engages, but it doesn't stop the cap from being removed. So I guess the flap is kind of useless for me, as it has no chain... hopefully I still have the stocker somewhere, I usually keep everything
  13. I used the grey PVC shower liner (Oatey brand from Home Depot), it's flexible and doesn't hold any moisture, and is soft enough that it doesn't push the door open
  14. Looking really good.... the truck liner looks great, should protect it for the rest our lifetimes, at least! Painting is my favorite, all your hard work (or lack thereof...) comes together and gives you that finished look! As mentioned, I love the dark green Zs... can't wait to see it in the sun!
