Upside down cheeze slopes work nicely.

I see you have used them in your 5 and 3/4 Wides Cars. I don't get how it can be 5 3/4

With space magics. Or some rubber bands holding the upside down side panels so that they are held against some more panels inside the car. I arranged mine so that the innermost part of the upside down panels was wedged against the studs on the right-side-up chassis of the car. And then the rubber band simply pulled the 2 side panels snugly into the sides of the chassis and it didn't go anywhere. If I still had them I could use a picture and this would all make sense. XD

There are many ways of doing this, as I have managed many different ways. look here:

This topic is an excellent idea ! Thanks to all who wrote a comment. To avoid the box wheel wells you can use part ref. 3659 or 50947 (see on Bricklink.com).

I created this topic to first of all see the different techniques that everyone uses and to bring activity back to the group. =)

I was going to say Isaac came up with some neat techniques, but he beat me to it ;)

Some things for me for an 5-wide: You need to use a lot of 1x2 plates with 1 knob, and you need a lot of 1x1's, 1x4's, 1x3's and 1x2's.

BTW Can I add my BMW 3.0 CSL to this group? It is only 5-wide in the back, but can I? Link: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/334751

When I made my 5-wide DeLorean the biggest challenge was the lack of odd studded plates. I almost used all of my 2x3 plates in black and grey for it. The DeLorean was especially tricky to build as ist had an interior, the gullwing doors and a 5x5 base plate. It was quite tricky to get a rigid structure with all these 1x3 and 3x3 plates...

But I think we'll all have to admit that it looks great!
