Here's what's going in the Brat. It's the one I paid my 9 yr old daughter $15 to assemble.

What parts did you paint black? how about the yellow?

It looks kinda cool how all the stuff you need to touch (fillers/dipsticks) are painted yellow on the newer Soobies.

How about the blue tubing?

Don't they have child labor laws down there??!!
Hehe, jes kiddin. Looks good. I do have to say, if I have a daughter I would prefer that she build her own motor for her Soob, it gives a kid so much appreciation for their first car if they built it themselves (with dads or moms help of course). Looks killer.

Outstanding!! You are teaching her well.

I wish I could get my 7 year old interested in helping out in the garage. I even bought her a tool set - but it aint happening yet. She says it "stinks" in there.

Keep giving her projects to work on, and someday she'll be teaching you...

thats amazing... when i was 9 my dad only let me hold the light... he would say things like "i don't know son... i think i should do it.":(

i am 16 now and he won't even let me do a brake job on his car... he would rather pay 300 bucks or whatever it is to get a shop to "do it right" whatever that means...

i feel neglected...:mad:

hehehe... have fun
