This is a small lego car I built. The design is based on the 1969 Mustang Boss 302. It is four studs wide and twelve studs long. If any of these pictures are not descriptive enough, or you are having trouble building this, then just leave a comment and I'll help you out. Now, to the build!

Step 1: Parts

The following picture shows all the parts that are required.

Step 2: Build

Start by placing the wheels on the axles. Then, take 2x2 plates, and place one on top of each of those. Put the wheel wells on top of those, and put another 2x2 plate on each of those.

Step 3: Build

Now, place the 4x10 plate on top of those two, leaving one stud hanging over, like in the picture.

Step 4: Build

In this step, take two 2x4 bricks, a 1x4 brick, a 1x4 plate, and a 4x4 plate. Place the 2x4s on the 4x4, and put the 1x4 pieces together. Place these underneath the 4x10 in between the wheels.

Step 5: Build

Now you need a 1x4 brick with 4 studs on the side. On the two middle studs, place a black 1x2 grill. Put two clear 1x1 circles on the other two, and place this assembly on to the overhanging stud. This is the front end.

Step 6: Build

For this step you need a 2x4 slanted piece, two clear 1x1 cylinders, three 1x4 flat topped pieces, and two 1x3 slanted pieces. Place the 2x3 slanted pieces on the back two studs, so there is one stud hanging over. Then, place the cylinders in front of those, one on each side. Place the 2x4 slanted piece in front of the cylinders. To finish this step cover all of those with the flat pieces.

Cool thing!
The top right piece I'm having trouble finding. Is it possible to build this without that piece?
ItsTheHobbs (author)  Xxxjdog57xxX3 years ago
Which piece do you mean, exactly?
on your CAD drawing of the pieces, the one on the top right.
go to a lego store at the pic-a-brick wall they have these were i liv but they are red

Yes, it is possible to build it without those pieces. You could add another 2x2 piece on top of the axles, and then put a 2x4 on top of that.
Thanks. I'm working with Lego digital designer to get the pieces together. Thanks for telling me that trick to work with limited resources.

Nice little project! Just out of curiosity, why did you stick with the CAD drawings for the intro and completion pictures, rather than taking photos of what you actually built?
ItsTheHobbs (author)  kelseymh4 years ago
Because I am not the best photographer. I could try to take some real pictures today.
:-D It'd be cool to see one shot of the finished build; for the construction stages, the CAD drawings are excellent!
ItsTheHobbs (author)  kelseymh4 years ago
How are those?
Sweet :-) Sweet enough to bump the feature up a level. It's too specialized for top-level, but the level of detail, and the clarity of your instructions, are sufficient to warrant a "Play"-feature, not just a Lego-feature. Who knows? It might even inspire the K'nexers to document their builds!

Cool!

If this gets featured, then I don't know why Oblivitus's ibles that use CAD drawings don't get featured as well.
This isn't the appropriate place for such a discussion. If you'd like to move it to one of our Orangeboards, fine.
