This Guy Dumped Expanding Foam Onto A MERCEDES And Made Something.. AWESOME.

What do you do when you have an old CLK Mercedes, a huge batch of unused expanding foam, and a LOT of spare time? Well.. This Lithuanian man may have found the perfect answer!

Read on, and we will step you through the transformation.

At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that was Vigo from Ghostbusters, but it turns out he is quite handy with moulding a custom designer car from a junk wreck.

Vigo from Ghostbusters.

First you take an old CLK Merc, get some THIRTY INCH RIMS (yes 30″!)..

Making room for the massive 30×12″ rims.

Cut the guards out..

This guy sure has a good imagination.

Next get out your old batch of unused expanda-foam, and start… Foaming?

You’ll need foam.. Lots of foam!

Once the foam hardens, you can start sculpting your creation.

Carving out the shape.

We can start to see where he is headed with this..

Taking shape.

And it doesn’t look half bad really.

Filling in the small foam pockets with finer foam and sanding the surface.

Sketching out the finer details like intake vents.

But there is still a LOT of work left to go. We won’t ask why, but the mind boggles at just how much time and effort went into this project.

Time for some rear end work.

This process is actually similar to how concept designers actually create their manufacturer concept cars. I mean, if you look at Toyota’s FT-1, that is actually pretty much just a foam shell on a Camry body, albeit done by a professional multi-million dollar design company “Calty Design”, and not a random guy in his Lithuanian shed.

Coming together.

Almost looks like a Ferrari California from the rear.

It’s not looking quite so preposterous now is it?

Taking measurements.

Careful measurements are taken to ensure symmetry.

Exterior nearly done.

Still looks a bit awkward, but you can see where he’s going with this.

With the exterior shape more or less complete, the mad man turns his attention to the interior. And you guessed it, that means more expanding foam 🙂

I have no idea how he didn’t give up at this stage.

The interior actually looks incredibly impressive once complete. Just WOW!

Now that’s a transformation if ever I saw one!

And now for the exterior to get some paint.

It might not be everyone’s taste, but you can’t say that workmanship isn’t impressive!
