iDz Bowl's Projects

Post by iDz Bowl »

Here's a thread where I'm going to keep all my past and current projects in. Feel free to comment.

First Project: Tiger Force F-150 Flashback Super 6
Status: Completed
Mods: Repaint, Decals, 12v upgrade w/low and high speeds, new shifter from a jeep w/high,low, and reverse settings, inline 40amp fuse, and lights
Lighting: Underbody neons, front fogs, rear brakes; with illumintated toggle switch purchased from nikg. Front main lights, modded from Harbor Freight 12v's and I added an illuminated toggle switch to those also.

This was a trashed F-150 Ford Flashback that I found on Craigslist for $20.00. It came beat up, little to no decals, and with a dead battery. The super six engines were fine though and the gears only needed grease, the wiring was usable although I upgraded that for safety. I tore it down, used wd40 to clean off the old decals, and started repainting it. I made the decals on the computer, added the lights and upgraded it to 12v with the help from some members on here and some diagrams. The design of this vehicle was based on the vintage G.I.Joe Tiger Sting vehicle.

Second Project: Harley Davidson
Status: Complete and For Sale
Mods: 12v Upgrade and rewire

I got this Harley off a family member. It originally came with two 6v's. I took it apart, rewired it, added the 12v, heat gunned the light scratches out of it, and cleaned it up. I aslo cleaned the contacts in the sound box and got it working again.

3rd Project: Ford F-150 Flashback (super 6's)
Status: Work In Progress, semi-completed
Mods: 12v upgrade
Future Mods: Adding voltmeter I just got off eBay. Adding a turbo (nos) switch with an extra 6v battery.
Lighting: none yet, considering adding underbody glow kit from nikg

I picked this one up a couple months ago from a guy that didn't even know his wife was selling it until I showed up with my kids. He threw in a dead battery and a 6v quick charger with it. Got it for $20.00, it was a steal of a deal! It came with the tailgate, seatbeat, hood clamp, and cb; which I didn't get on our first Flashback. This thing is so quick already, my son love drifting now. It's actually faster than the Tiger Force one I upgraded, but I have so many wires in that thing; I think I'm losing a little bit of power due to that.

Added the digital voltmeter and green neons. Unfortunately it was pretty light out so you can't see the underglow. Next I will clean up the area where I installed the voltmeter and I'm adding a strobe on the back of the seat for safety, just waiting on a 12vdc to 3vdc converter to arrive. I'll show a video once that's installed, I've already got the wiring and toggle switch in place.

Fourth Project: lil' Bratz Safety First
Status: Current Work in Progress
Mods: 12v and wiring upgrade, body modifications, repaint, and vinyl. Replacing gears, motors, wiring harness, shifter, and throttle pedal with parts from a Barbie VW Bug from Power Wheels.
Lighting: Underglows, headlights, illuminated toggle switch, and brake lights probably from Nikg


My neighbors threw this one out because it wouldn't go into reverse anymore and the battery wasn't charging well anymore. I grabbed it on it's way to the curb, I thought it wasn't ready for the trash just yet! The body was in decent shape, but there was definitely a problem with the shifter. The battery was junk, so I got rid of it. I decided I didn't want to deal with the board, because the vehicle was super slow to begin with. So I decided a 12v upgrade was the best thing for it. It's gonna be for my daughter next summer when she turns three, so I didn't want to make it as fast as the super 6's I have.

Here's the only picture I have of it before I started modding it:

Here's a better before picture of it, this was Taz's before he made it into a lil Bratz Racer:

Here it is, almost complete:

Here's one I did for a guy at work.

It's a KFX Ninja. I removed the old decals, cleaned, and sanded it. Painted it and added decals. Added lights and did some re-wiring. Hope you enjoy.

I added the digital voltmeter into the black super six f-150, pictures above. I'm also added the rear strobe this weekend.
