    TB Evo 3 Surikarn build

    I think your right about the dampers being re anodized, the red trf damper set hop up has grey anodizing on the threaded section. Either the damper parts have been replaced with 49313 and 49314 or they've had the blue stripped off and done in red. Looking smart anyway πŸ‘

    Paint advice

    Got myself in a bit of a pickle over a body I've painted, 6 months ago I painted a Toyota body shell and had a paint problem towards the rear of the shell, paint wouldn't adhere to it. Managed to find a replacement body and lost interest in it πŸ™„. Decided the other day to strip the bad area and repaint πŸ‘ used tamiya's remover which works well, but expensive! Now I have two different shades on the body! I backed the red with white to brighten the red, which worked. Do I respray it all again in red and back again in white? would that create a soild colour again, strip entire body ££, or start on the new body!? Sven

    Great looking chassis, I have one and it's one of my favourites the red parts really make it. I think it's the only touring car to come with titanium screws as standard.

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    Not quiteπŸ˜€ Although I have a couple of the body sets you spotted already. I wish more Japanese sellers would use ebay! Buyee is great but the third party costs are a bit crippling πŸ™

    Are these pretty rare bodyshells now?

    I'd say the F40 followed by the Fiat. Ive seen the Toms Levin and the Escort on Ebay few times in the last few years
