    Nobody has done this befor?

    I had to make lexan boat molds at my last job and it was easy. I wish I still worked there to get sheets of lexan. :(

    Try these guys, they even have 3 Ohio locations. They are one opf a few I've found that sell lexan down to .030/.040/.060 and actually have sheet available big enough for 10th scale cars, 4x8 sheets though.

    I used to pull HO slot car bodies all the time.


    As for the paint, will it effect your mold? If so I'd try some enamel thinner dabbed on it with a brush. Chances are, judging by how it's painted they didn't even use the right paint.

    Ive heard that chrome can be taken off rc tires with non-watered down simple green overnight, just soaking. Thats what I would reccomend, that shit is strong. Soak it, if stuffs still there it should be relatively loose, just scrub. I'm not sure about this, so maybe someone can concur.:ponder:

    Dude that Iroc is actually pretty sweet. Would look good with a set of HPI 5 star rims in chrome to offset the body. AS far as pounding out a new body, I am interested to see what and how you do it. Hopefully you will post some pics and such sort of a how to on how you did it. Later

    This is both exciting, and depressing to me. Very interested in the project, but pissed its an Iroc as I am a 5.0L fan, and can't find that they ever made a 5.0L body. Good luck on the project. Iroc, or not LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, I did, but you beat me to it to point that out.
    One year later, the question, "How did this come out?"

    If you are still waiting for an answer, it's long since been destroyed.

    Wish those Pics worked. Nice find Zandor. I sent I'm Broken a PM. Hopefully he still has pics, and will post them. I've been half-a$$ searching for a 5.0L body for a while. If anyone finds one for sale let me know.

    Yeah see that is one hell of a nice paint job, but like the Iroc in this thread is an older style I want an 87-93 foxbody 5.0L mustang shell as I have two of them in 1:1 scale, and I'd like to paint a matching shell for my MTX-3.
