I was asked by some TCers to upload some PATTERN to cut out the coffee can parts to make custom inner wheel arches for the Sand Scorcher buggy. These will work with both, the original and re-re vehicles.
To make these you'll only need an empty coffee can, a piece of bike tire rubber, and some black matt paint.


You can always perfect this to your own ideas of what's best for your car. I expect the idea will be of help to anybody that's working one of these cars.

And here's the forum entry that shows my custom work on the re-re VW body as well: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=62522

Of course, if you have the $$ Seth's (Wyoming) inner wheel arches are also an EXCELLENT option for your Sand Scorchers as they are styrene parts that go attached to the body while these go to the chassis.
