Looking good now ! Reminds me, I have to go back and check out the Zombie threads. I completely dropped the ball on mine.

As for plows, I think the spikes would be a hindrance. The last thing you want is a bunch of Zombies stuck to the hood of your car !

As for plow vs. plough....for me, it's always been :

Plow : snowplow, plow snow.....
Plough : Plough the field, plough right through it......

So I guess there's a CDN English version as well ! Let's see what the Francophone have to say.....

Something to get the "walkers" off their feet and over the top of the car may be all you need. Or just stick close behind the fire truck and, as we say in the winter as we follow the snow plow (plough) truck, "just follow his tracks"!
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Now an update:

The next step to highen up the suspension.
After extending the schock-absorbers the bars for the wheels were the next duty.
In front with some blocks to rise the body and in the rear with the new angle of the suspension.

An overview:


The front from the side-front:

And from behind:


The rear from the side-front:


Inspite of the rear-window I have set in a trough:


After this I've built two "steel"-barrels:

After investigation about barrels, I see that barrels of 100 l, 200 l, 50 Gallons = 216 l and 220 l were too high to place them crosswise into the window-gap.
So I'd built two barrels of 60 l each. These I can place side by side in direction of travel into the trough.
Now I have two additional tanks of a good dimension. They will be filled up by the nozzles aside and connected to the fuel-system by the cover-nozzles at the top.
I used a 5-ml-syringe for the body of the barrels, because it's diameter is precisely the scaled diameter of a real 60-l-barrel.

To replace the rear window, I will put a rear-view-camera at the engines bonnet and connect it with a screen at the dashboard.

That's all for today.

I spent my time making some equipment for the Porsche (completely scratch-build).

To set the mood an overview:


And now one by one.
First of all a CB-Radio:

Scaled after an example from the real life (stored in my basement) with an on/off/volume knob, a switch to select the channel and a (red) display. The "display" was an old decal to have sharp edges and paralell lines. The print on the decal is too small (it was a 1:72-scale-decal for a plane) to recognize it later, when the radio is put at it's place in the Porsche!
In addition, the radio has a flexible spiral cable with a microphone at it's other end and a red and a white ("plus" and "minus") cable to connect it with the car's electric system.
An antenna will also be build in the near future.

Next is a GPS-navigation-system (sorry for the bad pic):

As state of the art, the screen has a  rubber sucker for fixing it at the frontscreen and as a connection between a "Schwanenhals" ("Gooseneck"?) to bring it into the right position related to the driver. Like in real life the screen has a black cable to connect it to the cigaret-lighter and also to the car's electric system to re-charge it's accumulator.
O.k., the world's man-made infrastructures were collapsed step-by-step when the zombified population grows, but not all of!
The satellites around the earth were still in it's orbits and so are the GPS-satellites.
They will work further on for years until they lost their energy to hold their position. But because they were extraordinary expensive, it will last a long, long time.
So a survivor would be mad, if he didn't used this service, wouldn't he?

And finally the screen for the reversing-camera:

It was nearly the same way to make like the GPS-screen:
The screen was made of transparent-grey plastic from a bowl of an old juicer, framed by thin strips of plasticsheet.
The frame of the GPS-screen was painted by bright black and the cam-screen was covered by aluminium foil from our kitchen.
Both backsides are painted by bright black.
Maybe I will add a DVD-player to connect the reverse-screen to the player occasionally to give the driver the opportunity to watch some films/movies from time to time. ;)

That's all for today.

Nice details! A lot of tech would keep working if a way to power it could be found.

Great job on those bits ! Those will really bring the kit to life. And it's nice to have some technology around too. The last thing you need in a Zombie Apoclypse is to find yourself on a dead end street surrounded !

Thank you for your friendly comments!

@ kerick:
The Porsche owner was thinking the same, you had said. So he'd changed the original generator by a stronger one (this may cost roundabout 1 hp, but this will be not a problem) and re-placed the original car-battery by a exemplar of the same size, but with a higher capacity.
You see, your worries are unsubstantiated. ;)

Look, what I've done with the additional equipment.

Three views of the dashboard (No 1):

Right the way of a photograph of an original Porsche 911 F-Model dashboard of 1969 with the real-wood-veneer.
I just have to think over, where to fix the microphone.
Sorry, I'd just seen on the pic, the bracket/the holder of the reverse-screen is abit crooked I will correct it, I promise!
The bracket/holder is made of a small strip of a aluminium-tea-light (as you see on the right).

No 2:

There you see an edge of the holder of the CB-radio.
Surely, I didn't glued it the simple way directly under the dashboard... no, no, no!
I used a small strip of the contact area of an old bank-card as the holder, fixed the holder to the radio and glued the radio by using the holder like in reality under the dashboard.
On the right you see the wheel's suspension, the shockabsorber and the disk-brake: I used a self-glueing ring for thin papers (to put in an old-fashioned file) to paint the black circle in the middle.

No 3 (from the left):

Sorry, I just seen on the pic some impurities of the painting... I will correct it.
And I will add the Porsche-blazon in the middle of the steering-wheel later.

The dashboard was painted by mat-black and mat-brown and gets it's original shining by using gloss-sealant for cleaning floors.

That's it for today.

Thx, pals!

@ Capt. Canada:
You said "accelerating hard"? Of course! It's a Porsche! ;)

After I'd added the underbody protection, I suddenly remembered, the  petrol-tank is at the front of each Porsche 911!
"O.k.", I'd thought, "I have lifted the wheel-suspension."
But then: "This is not enough!"
There must be an additional protection.

So I declared some pieces of copper wire-sticks to steel bars and positioned them to "weld" them later. ;) :

and

The wires are scaled to 3 cm in diameter.

And a pass sample with the cow-bar, additional rear-bumper and the bars for the rear-wheels:


In a supermarket, I'd bought something ( 3,99) to use as the guards for the windows and lamps:

and

The 1 mm meshes are upscaled 2.5 cm wide.


And now to the body:

This is when 40 y.o. plastic becomes brittle while decolorizing it:


Never mind!
There is something, invited looong ago and it will helps: glue! ;)

Now, after the body is finally cleaned and the fractures are re-fixed:



The parts of the body primed by a spray-can:


And now coloured (from below):

(and from above:)

Now, you see, the car's name will be "Kermit, the Zombiekiller"! LOL

The "welds"; 30 at the zombiebar and 2 at the rear bumper:


The trough (inside and around the frame of the rear window):


Two short welds at the edge(s) of the baggage-compartment-extension:

(The other welds will be invisible, 'cause they will be inside.)

And this was my material:

Householdglue (semi-fluent) and yarn (nearly the perfect structure and close to the correct size/scale).
DON'T USE WAXED YARN, it's much too unflexible to work with it proper and without to curse the whole time!!!

That's all for today.

Will be continued...
