A Lithuanian man has been garnering lots of attention for his hobby of turning old beat-up cars into refurbished masterpieces – and you’ll never guess how he does it. If you’re game enough to take on the same task, all you’ll need is an old car, expanding foam, and cardboard. Seriously, that’s it! Although something tells me that this is really quite an intense project, requiring loads of skill, even though the materials list is short.
He starts out with an ordinary clunker, one you might find in a junkyard. This one’s a Mercedes Benz CLK Class. The fur coat is optional, but cool nonetheless.
Next, he covers most of the car in expanding foam. This part sounds like fun, but the real work comes afterwards…
Sculpting out the new body of the car is time consuming and requires all the talent of a master artist.
This is the product of hours of painstaking sculpting work:
Now, the cardboard comes in.
With the help of stencils, the body of the car is perfected.
It already looks like a completely different vehicle.
But there’s still more to do!
Attention to detail is key to making the finished product a dead-ringer for an expensive sports car.
Not many people have enough patience for this.
Can’t forget the interior! It goes through the same ordeal – lots of foam!
Impressive! Imagine picking your date up in this baby!
Not done yet, though! A real artist mixes his own paints.
The end result is almost too extraordinary to believe!
So, what do you think? What this guy can do is obviously awesome, but do you have what it takes to create one of these foam cars yourself?
