Zoleco makes television Debut

The Discovery channel saw my car on Facebook and came out to shoot a segment about it for the Daily Planet tv show back at the end of July . It will air for the first time on Oct 17 at 8pm pacific time. Should boost my promotional campaign. Nice of them to be interested!

That is nice Zoltan! I will try to catch the show tonight! Congrats!

On your site in one of the build pictures I saw something that looked like somekind of spray on foam to form the body shell. May I ask what kind of foam that is? And was it a good choice for easy shaping?
The car is looking sweet!

Yes. your observation is correct it is your typical expanding spray foam you get at any building supply. The issue with it is that after you saw,sand or grind it(ever so gently or it is gone) if you don't seal it with bondo and a few layers of fibreglass right away after a few days sitting open pore the stuff will move around on you.Definitely not the best but it did the job.

Too bad I missed the show. Hopefully I can dig it up. This project looks really interesting.

Dang iPhone and no flash... You'd think they would work that out by now.... I'll have to catch it in a bit. Thanks for digging that up.
