Lego Man Hotrods…

During the winter months, and especially after a huge snow, the shop gets pretty quiet.  No one wants to go out in that stuff.  Sometimes the mind wanders, and if there is a lego man laying around in need of a ride, you have to build one.

Lego Man Hotrod

This hotrod was a 2 day build.  It took a day looking at o-rings to figure out the tires, and from there it took on a life of its own.  Finding glue to put plastic and metal together was a challenge, but found the best solution…. JB Plasticweld.  That stuff will glue anything together, and it is strong bond.
