Groovy Grader, Unreal Roller or Firecracker Tom Daniel kits - or just the wheels & tires?
Posted by LostInStyreneAnd... on Monday, April 01, 2019 11:04 AM

I've seen them on Ebay, but I really only want the wheels & tires - and I can't justify $200+ for that.   I used one pair of the rear tires and the fronts from the Grader to build an IMSA-style wide body Bug back in the early 70's, and they are just So Cool for that kind of project.  

 

Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Since I'm not getting any responses, I think it's safe to say I'm not the only fan of those kits or the wheels & tires.   

 

So - first alternative, does anyone have any suggestions to make something similar?  I've actually tried using rubber hose, but it's Really difficult to get a good, square cut.  I have my eye on another kit to give the 'wide body 80's IMSA' treatment to. 

 

Thanks!
