Wacky Rally car Audi 80 to huey helecopter

Postby Bodd » Sat Jun 06, 2009 4:48 pm

Hey guys, I put up athread a while ago explaining that this year myself and 3 other mates are going on the wacky rally to Barcelona.

If you've not heard of it, it's like the gumball rally.....with £250 cars.....in fancy dress.

1800 miles of complete randomness, daily tasks and prizes.

we've entered two teams Air Cavaelry (like Apocalypse Now)and team KGB, and will be trying to beat each other all the way.

Air Cav (myself and a house mate) have an old Audi 80 diesal 1.9 turbo that we are going to make look like a Vietnam Huey helecopter.

bit of propaganda lol, me on the left looking like a numpty

so thought i would put up a project thread to give you all a laugh.(sorry its not a BMW hope thats ok moderator team) :D

I didnt take any pics of the audi before we started but it looked exactly like this. We got it for £60 from a garage next door to where my house mate works with a years MOT! :D and its only done 200,000 mile......so its just run in :wink:

Image

ok so first things first, the design...a quick bit of photoshop for ideas.
Image

then time to start painting. weapons of choice.....house paint rollers and brushes with matt green water resistant paint.
started off giving it a wash with some 80 gritt sand paper to key the surface
Image
Image

Image

Image

Image

Time to start the gun......and we decided its got to be a minigun........so 3 bits of ply wood a speaker box plasitc pipes two paint tins a metail threaded bar,a chain of old inert bullets and an old 12v drill in the box to make it spin!
Image

Image

then painted it black and time to mount it on the car!
Image
Image
Image
Image

colour coded rims....lol
Image :lol:

bullet holes and some rivets...
Image

Image

comming up...the tail and rear rotor blade more painting(logos, American white army stars etc..)
hope you all will have a giggle watching this progress. :D

pics comming up of the turbine on the roof around the rotor bearing. rotor blades, rocket pods and landing skids :D 2 weeks left!!

oh and forgot to mention, we got hold of an old car alarm and its now rigged on our friends car(the red one in the background) with the locking button doing a 4 second burst on the horn and the unlock button doing the wipers!...so when they roll up behind a police car or at a junction with some one crossing we're going to be pressing the button on their horn for a four second blast.....they wont know what the hells going on :lol:

ok guys here’s the red one. This is Team KGB's(other house mate and friends)car. Its a Citroen xantia or zara...i can't remember. I imagine most of you will remember a game called command an conquer red alert.....well they wanted to make the mammoth tank from that...neither of them are practical or hands on people...yeah...good luck. lol :lol: the cool thing about the Citroen though is it has hydraulic suspension and goes pretty low :D .
