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!
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.
First you take an old CLK Merc, get some THIRTY INCH RIMS (yes 30″!)..
Cut the guards out..
Once the foam hardens, you can start sculpting your creation.
We can start to see where he is headed with this..
And it doesn’t look half bad really.
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.
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.
It’s not looking quite so preposterous now is it?
Careful measurements are taken to ensure symmetry.
Exterior nearly done.
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 🙂
The interior actually looks incredibly impressive once complete. Just WOW!
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!
