Impressive work!

The video kind of skips over a few important details though. Like how were the body panels made? Where did he get the tail lights? Engine cover?

The video shows mostly the fairly mundane stuff like sanding and painting. Was some other SLR (wreck?) taken apart to make this?

I still it still looks fake cause a lot of parts look different from a real SLR . Too short, fender, front bumper, etc.. So I think he crafted the parts himself

Wonder what will happen to the 'SLR' body if it hit into something solid ... like a mini cooper ...

This car is more impressive than it looks! it was made before SLR's were 'commonly' available. Parts were not for sale at the time, so nothing on it comes from an SLR. You'll notice it's a replica of an 'SLR vision' which is the concept car, not the actual production car. I believe he got the measurements of off viewing the concept car from a distance, then from toy cars and pictures only.

If that's all done in metal (steel or aluminum) he's got some serious skills - or deep pockets.

Wow. That's some impressive work. Nevermind it's a fake or misrepresented. Looks great for what it is.

SpecialFx,

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t already.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.



Thank you
Jeff
