Lightning Mk2

Lightning Mk2 (2)

The plan is to build a kids car for my two grandaughters to enjoy and get it ready for a Christmas 2017.

With all the materials including a spare electric drill to hand and some MDF from the local Builders Merchants the build began. The build was reasonably straight forward but some minor changes had to be made on a few aspects during trhe build. It was decided not to paint the car until the car had a shakedown and the mudflaps were also left off for now.

I thought it would be nice to build something for my two grandaughters for Christmas (2017). It would be too easy just to buy a plastic electric car so a hand build one would be nice to do. I did a bit of research some time ago and I came up with buying plans for this Lightning kit. Time was getting on so I took a quicker route and purchased the acessory kits; e.g. bolt packs, wheels etc. The bin and garden sieve came from Amazon and the material from Dunelm.
