I've found this link that shows how a Lithuanian sculpted a car onto another using expanding foam.
English Russia Lithuanians and PU-foam
Here's what it looks like when done
and when he started

same reason why fisker does it. :shrug:
hey hey hey!! watch it :) :p

...was never a fan of his conversions - but the karma is very cool :up:


...any ways- the foam is just form to mold the glass over, kinda they way Rutan built his planes - so if its good enough for world class avaiation... but i agree - would not "overlay" a steel car - kinda silly. but i have a project in mind where this is essentailly the way i would graft something that was not US legal onto a US legal car and modify the chop reform from the orginal panels. finally, once you have the finished mock up, you can allways pull molds and lay up "fresh" parts.

Wow, that is amazing! You may not like the end design but you gotta give him his due credit. There cannot be too many people in this world that could have pulled that off. He probably should get a job at a car manufacturer or somewhere shaping their prototypes.

If people actually start doing this, you guys are going to start seeing some of the worst kit cars ever rolling down the street...

I'd like to see how this stuff holds up after a few thousand miles of bumpy roads.

Holy crap, that's a lot of A-B foam.

I can't imagine sanding that all out. I have some of that in my clam i'm reworking, and i've determined I can't work on it at home. It static sticks EVERYWHERE and leaves nasty pellets that take forever to go away. I'm working with the smallest fraction of what he is, and it already infuriates me.
