Boob Job

This is a stack of wire, coated in Btuy. plastic.

It is Plastruct 1.2mm wire coated in plastic.  I used the part with the black ink on it as the length guage so they are all cut the same length.

Then using a pair of pliers they are bent into bumper shape.

These are 2.5mm size plastic beads.

Glued onto the front of the 234 series armored car they look like headlights or a boob job.

They are neither, they are bumper supports.  I use the Plastruct glue to hold them all in place.

Thanks FF. By the way, use plastic beads, most beads are actually glass and don't glue well.
