    Hi guys,

    This is my first post here. I'm looking around the internet for the right place to make my home, for sharing DIY projects that I am enjoying with my son Mac.

    This has been so much fun doing this with him, and his truck keeps improving... so it's a win win situation.
    Now, I don't own a 3D printer like you guys (Although I'm seriously considering it for future projects).

    I'd like to post here the first three blogs on how to take a Step Ford Raptor ride along toy, and "trick it out" with after market upgrades!

    Blogs


    1. Blog: Aftermarket Tire upgrade!

    2. Blog: Engine sound effects

    3. Blog: Headlights!!!

    (For the Forest Coaster experience)

    I figured, if there is any place on the internet where someone could share their inspiration with building things, its got to be "openbuilds.com". I hope to find a warm and thriving community here.

    Looking forward to sharing my Daddy-babby bonding projects with you all and hopefully! others will share this thread with new dads who want to share the experience of buying and upgrading a toy truck with their son.

    Thank you for having me on this new forum, hope to hear from you soon.

    All the best!

    PS: All the sound effects created, where done by me. I took authentic Ford Raptor engine sound tracks and spliced them with light (baby) music. Next, uploaded them onto SoundBoard.com. Where anyone can use it for free. You will find a mixture of both idle and spirited driving tracks.
