I bought this little Corvette with some other vehicles, didnt really know what I wanted to do with it... I decided to do a full repaint, full lighting, dual motor conversion, the works! Ha Ha

Here is the beginning of the project, not in great shape.

Image


Image


Image


Torn down to the bare shell.

Image


Image


Mocked up the headlights.

Image


Painted the housings black.

Image


Image


Tinted the lenses, they were in bad shape, I wetsanded them for a long time and did the best I could with them.

I then began work on the inner tub, I cut out the front portion to fit two 6V batteries to power the lighting, these were wired in series to provide 12v.

Image


Next up was the modifications necessary to add the second motor/gearbox, I drilled a hole in the tub for the motor to stick through and cut the washer off the axle. Then I prepped and painted the tub.

Here is the battery for the drive system, mounted over the motors on a tray.

Batteries and wiring for the lighting.
