  • Another WOMP lexan Mini Cooper body from the paint booth!

    We did a special "Mini Mania" series at the local track -so what better excuse to paint up another Mini Cooper body!
    I wanted to do a paint job with kind of a 70's feel to it and came up with this!
    It is all done in paint, from the inside using stencils I made on my vinyl cutter.

    Here are some pictures out on the track!

          That's a sharp looking Mini, Todd. I like how you have a light gray track surface to race on.

            I like the gray surface particularly from a visibility standpoint. It makes the cars easy to follow at the extremities of the track.

            Denny - Thanks for the compliment!
            On the scale - some say they are 1/32 some say 1/24 - but I consider them somewhere between the two. For reference as to track fit, etc, we run them with a 2.55" max width which is very similar to the new Pioneer Legends.

          Denny, it's probably on a womp chassis. Technically, those aren't 1/24 or 1/32 scale. For talking purposes, I'd call it a fat 1/24. A few years ago, a friend gave me a different womp -size mini & an even smaller one, probably 1/32.

                Hey Todd, Great looking paint. Where do the body mount circles come from?

                  Thank you for the compliment and great to see you on the forum sir!
                  The circles of stick on "body armor" that helps to prevent tear through, etc during accidents is actually 1/4" circles popped out of a standard rectangular piece of Slick 7 Body Armor with a paper punch. I think it gives a cleaner look and doesn't end up overlapping the numbers on the side of the body etc.

                    Thats a great hack. I think have I both, body armor & a paper punch. Not sure the size, might be smaller though.

                      Thank you sir!
                      You can get a LOT of little circles from a single piece of the body armor verses cutting full length strips.
