The First Tom Daniels customs FAN Community Build off April 3 '08 - No End!!
Posted by White_R34 on Monday, March 24, 2008 1:41 PM
So what to you all that like or love Tom Daniels customs think of doing a CB like this. If you in for it take your time and think about it. Th rules are simple.
Rules List:
1. You can build any type of Tom Daniels custom you want. ((NO)) what ifs.
2. You can build any car that has poped up in a move ((Must show a pic be for you start your build))
3. You may build box stock or fully detailed (this includes engine wiring and seat belts ect...)
4. You may paint the car or truck versions any way you like but for the {True fans} try to keep to the true look and color of the custome.
5. If your in for this build tell me wich model your going to work on. So I can make a list.
6. If you have over 85 % done that's ok you can post any thing you want even if it's done and has bean on your shelf for some time. This is for the Tom Daniels Fans.
7. Please post an image's of your ((WIPs))work don't just tell every one what your doing. As this CB is for all of us that love his work to ((SEE)) what the fans like and love about his designs.
So you all tell me what you think of this CB. A Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down

Ok the list starts here:
1. jrmullens1 - (RM) Beer Wagon.
2. White_r34 - (RM) Pie Wagon/Bad actor: aka Quicksilver
3.modelcrazy1 - (RM) BAJA BEAST

Does anyone have a list of what Tom Daniels cars were made into a kit? This would be helpful as many people might not know what they have.

go to www.tomdaniel.com
has a complete list off of Tom's kits
Just digging through my stuff as a matter of fact and found a Beer Wagon.
Count me for the Beer Wagon.
Funny thing though, only has 3 tires so i guess I'll have to change it up a little.
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane.

It's Tom Daniel, not Daniels!

I've been meaning to build one of his designs with detail for some time-I've done plenty unpainted or partially painted. I'm in, but I'm undecided as to which vehicle I'll do.

Here's what I've already done:

What happened to this CBP?

There's no replacement for displacement...

It died.  Probably from a lack of interest.  Sad

Bummer............. I'd like to do another Pie Wagon. I never finished mine and all the piece except the flathead and headers have been lost.

There are so many CBP's that get started and fail to make it past 10 to 20 postings.  And, there are just as many reasons why they fail.  Just because a CBP fails doesn't mean you can't go and build that project!  Yes, it would be great to have a similar build project with others, but sometimes others are involved with other projects or aspects of life and can't be included.  I have seen CBP's started on a whim by new members and never get beyond 5 posts.

Any one have the clear Bad Actor 60 Chevy glass that I can use in my Street Fighter? I'll happily trade the red glass or something else.
