So the second Mugen Super Sport arrived from Japan and this afternoon I got them together to take stock
The two cars together
The left hand green one will yield a load of parts for the right hand car that are needed to make the replica
Original Mugen Fuel Filter
The correct exhaust. I actually have two now so will probably use the used one and sell on the new one to make back some money
The receiver and switch covers
and the black chassis plate
My restored car below will lose a few bits, namely the engine, pink chassis, pink hardware and eventually the blue shocks
Correct Engine (Nova 2000) with the Mugen head
and the already painted body
So the plan of attack is as follows:
Strip down the green car, taking the parts from it I require (chassis, rx and switch cover, fuel filter)
Strip down the replica and remove the parts I dont need (pink washers, pink chassis)
Refurbish the black chassis and fit to the replica (Strip, sand, repaint)
Buy an original Mugen Sport chassis used and fit to the green car.
Sell the very rare pink chassis (its actually a limited numbered Mugen Athlete chassis) on Ebay
Find someone willing to swap a blue damper set for the original Sport silver ones. Should't be too hard as loads of collectors about.
Sell the OS engine from the replica and use the Novarossi Engine
Sell the NIB Mugen exhaust on Ebay
Sell the green Mugen Sport on Ebay
Sort my decal issue.
The end goal is to send the body to Mugen in Japan and try and get Koji Sanada to sign the shell.
