May I ask you how good are you at "basic stuff"?

And there have been a lot of tutorials posted here, just use the search engine.

I have a few tutorials on my site. Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but they are fairly useful.

Checked out the FAQ yet? There is plenty of information in there to get you started. Can't miss it - third link down from the top on the Car Modelling page.

Well i use my parts frame for customs thing. I made a tach guage out of a fat round peice of plastic, cut out the shape, cut out the inner interface. I used straight frame peices to make a roll cage, by cuting them out, straighten them out, measure, and glue. Also try balz (sp?) its a soft wood, you can make plenty things out of it if u have imagination :)

blasa
just so u know... really usefull stuff for prety much anything
1/4 or 1/8 inch blasa (small square) will work good for cages and stuff..
if ur good at carving u can get a block, there also are sheets of the stuff.

:rolleyes: How can you possibly make a tutorial for the turbo if you have ony 3 cylinders connected to the manifold and have no idea (had no idea before a graphic explanation) where the intercooler is connected? :confused:
