Umm... Well If I had hot water running thru these pipes, it would be able to keep Ice and snow from freezing on top of it.. I don't know I just thought that it looked cool, and I need to make it look more extreme than what I allready had, and this is pretty extreme, so It could go in incredibly cold enviorments and the occupants and the car itsself could survive. Its not nessisarly realistic, just thought that is was a fun concept... Is it bad??


If i keep the design, I was going to put expansion joints between the pipes on the door and on the fender. These are used in real life to allow expasion and movement in the pipes, I would use it so that the door could open...

Melt Ice i think. Brian this is crazy! Those pipes make it look so DEISEL! About the hot water, i dunno, it sure would melt the snow and ice deposits all over you're car. It sounds a bit drastic, but what the heck this is a very extreme vehicle.

Here are the expansion joints, or at least 2 of them... what do you think? I know adding all these pipes and stuff, is well, taking a big risk. But if it ends up looking like it does in my head, I think I will turn out pretty cool

Idea looks good.
However, ONE single hit ..and the whole system goes down.
Not that extreme right?

Good point.... so... WHat if I change my senario... What if the world freezes over, right? and... What if Mankind notices that the totally Screwed up, and decide to try and unite together to bring back what is left of the human race... Then, This thing won't need any weapons, and I could make it a rescue vehicle instead, with all of the lights and such.. Let me know what you think, just throwing ideas around in my head...
