Picture of My Own Unimog
Here i built a toy that is simmular to a unimog. it is a toy car called a "Grave Digger" that i put a small electric motor onboard. This is my first instructable, so please be honest what you think of it. sorry that the pictures are of the final progect. i told myself that i would post this one, but i started without bringing my camera. also... forgive the picture quality, it is a 2 year old 50 dollar wal-mart camera.

you will need a toy car, motor and a battery pack

Step 2: Motor...

get a toy car, remove the cover, and attach a motor. if you want to tape it, its ok. i have no picture of this step.

Step 3: Soldering

solder the wires to the motor, and to the switch, solder the wires to the battery, bad idea but... or tape them.
