BangShift.com Make It Kustom Miniature 1956 Buick Project: Way More Metal Work And This Thing
If you missed any of this Mini Buick build, click the link below. In this episode of the build, Karl lowers the rear, builds some bumper parts, and ultimately hinges the body which is super cool.
Karl Fisher at Make It Kustom has been answering lots of questions about a little miniature car that has been sitting in the background for the past few weeks and finally decided to share with us all what is going on with this cool little ride. The back story is that a friend of his started building this thing from a car that was so rusted out as to only have some little, but iconic, areas of the sheet metal that could be saved. Rather than throwing them away he figures that with some new sheet metal and a little creativity he could build a miniature car from them that would be rad and that people would dig, and he was right!
Unfortunately, he passed away before he could finish it, and Karl was given all the parts and pieces by the family as they knew he would be the guy to make this thing a reality. The body is done, the details are damn cool, but it has no chassis or drivetrain really. In this video Karl is going to start making it a runner and driver by fixing some of that and you are going to dig where he’s going with it!
