As soon as the custom work of Agustine Villegas aka Tingos hit Lay it Low all eyes were on him.
He creates incredible looking 1/25 scale custom interiors with an old school lowrider touch using all kinds of
materials like felt, flocking, mirror plastic, foam sheets, fabrics, etc. Tingos is a great artist when it comes down to combining all kinds of wild colors creating cool patterns that perfectly match the painted body of the lowrider model.
Tingos is a proud member of Los Underground model car...

After adding all kinds of details like the L.A. script and small winged Lost Angel emblems I had to rush to get this RC Lowrider finished for the Tokyo Lowrider show in Japan. I cleared the body and left it to dry on the central heater covered by a plastic container speeding up the process.
