modified Street Speeder V2
A much improved version of the mod I did for set 6743. It still looks mostly the same on the outside, but with the opening parts and extra interior detail it really begs the question how much do you have to mod a set before it becomes a true MOC?
About this creation
Rear view:


the original modified Street Speeder

About the car:
† † † † †This car has gone through so many improvements since my original mod, but even more since it was a stock set. At this point Iíve probably replaced over half the parts from the original set! My last mod involved making the car fit a Minifig and adding an opening hood and trunk, but most of this was just rearranging parts and adding a few hinges. Now I have even replaced most the chaises, the only unchanged parts left are the very top of the roof, wheels, and bumpers. The rest of the car's shape mostly looks the same, but is done using completely different parts from the original set.
† † † † †I am very happy with how these new round of changes came out, Iíd go as far as to say that it is as good as my Retro Motors cars (in detail, not looks, itís still a modern car after all). The changes I added to the chaises allowed me to vastly improve the interior with new seats (that are more like the nice ones from the original set) and improved dashboard. The engine is now in a more realistic position thanks to changes in how the bumper connects. The trunk is now much more authentic and no longer takes the rear fenders with it when opening.

Pictures:





The original set didn't have all this!






Off the chaises:

Here you can really see how much I've had to change to make this car what it is today. The body of the original was made mostly of green 2x8s running across the body, as you can see, not a single one remains.


The future:
I am thinking of temporally dismantling this car in order to rebuild the original set. I would like to take some pictures of the original car from the set so that I can upload them here so that people can see all the changes I've made. After that though I am planning to rebuild my modded version since I really like it.

Really cool modifications you made here. The opening hood and trunk really expand the playability of this set. Excellent work Scott!
