Quick simple body clips for your RC Hobby Car. These are useful when you've lost yours or in my case the guy i bought the car off didn't give them to me... or in general just don't have them.
Or you could make them just cuz u feel like it? Whatever your reason, here it is. : D
(BTW First i'ble)
Step 1: Supplies and Equipment
Needle Nose Pliers (normal pliers would work as well but it'd be harder to maneuver)
Sharpies *You could use any permanent marker but then they wouldn't be as cool |:
Felt Tip Pen
A clean workspace
Step 2: Find Yourself some PAPERCLIPS
Okay, there isn't reaaaaly a limit on how thin/thick you can make these but the ones i used were standard office 5cm long and 1mm thick. The paperclips should be nice and rigid but still malleable with pliers.
Step 3: Unbend Paperclip
Try and get it nice and straight. It makes the rest of the task easier.
Step 4: Mark out and bend first semi-circle
Erm. Preety simple, i marked 2cm and then made a small semi-circle.
Step 5: Start the bending
Okay it's pretty easy. All you need to do is hold the paperclip just before your to-be-bend and then push the long bit in the direction you want. After the first bend make them all 90 degree angles getting progressively smaller. You'll see.
Step 6: Cut of remaining and SHARPINISE
Just cut the paperclip a bit before the end of the straight bit.
To Sharpinise, colour in with a sharpie. BUT. do it like you mean it. cuz it's sharpie rite?
Step 7: Make more until you've got enough
Umm. just make more?
Step 8: Attach to car... or watever
Clip them on. You can push them to the first ridge or all the way.
