  1. Hey all, Finished the build and love the way it looks and it all came out so it was worth it. I do have an issue where the front chrome bumper that attaches to the chassis have screws that pinch and damage the front bottom painted piece of the body (under the chrome front). Any tips on that? My only though was to reverse the nut that goes on top and put it on the bottom but it’s too wide so I would need to put a smaller one perhaps. Does anyone else have this issue as well? Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated. Thanks again!
  2. Beautifully done! You definitely need a good pair of channel locking pliers to pop in all those tie rods! I recently finished mine this past weekend and I gotta say, I really love the way the black edition looks.
  3. I personally use "Tamiya Polycarbonate Body Cleaner": Somewhat hard to get at times, but works well.
  4. Bringing this back from 2005! While I'm enjoying the build (Black Edition) I'm HATING the tie rods that need to be popped in. I end up either hurting myself or scratching a part when trying to pop those stupid things into place. Extremely frustrating. I also would suggest a few edits to the manual for better clarity such as the small flat nut that goes into each gearbox for one screw to catch on the outside, which they did mention, but kind of blended it with the rest of the directions. Otherwise, aside from those 2 gripes (more towards the steering links), it's fine.
  5. Hello All, I'm looking for parts tree B for the Datsun 280ZX kit no 58022. Please feel free to PM me. Thank you!
  6. Hey Rob, Were you ever able to find a replacement screw set?
  7. I don’t know how I was not able to find this. Thank you very much!
  8. Hello everyone! Does anyone have a pdf of the manual to the Lotus 99T re-re kit number 84191 that they could please share? Thank you in advance!
  9. Novak Super Roosters are also nice. I use one in a vintage Monster Beetle.
  10. Not sure if any of these would do: https://www.amainhobbies.com/tamiya-jr-countersunk-screw-set-tam15510/p944788 Though, the longest one is 30mm not 32.
  11. Believe it or not, I just came across a car (Lotus 99T re-re) that needs the very same two 3x32mm screws as well. Were you successful in finding them? I found black ones but not the silver ones.
  12. Personally, with the exception of the steering servo, which I use Futaba for, I tend to keep everything OEM. So for instance, I use the TEU-105bk since it was the latest at the time. Now I use their latest TBLE-02. Also, while this might be blasphemous, I put a 105 into my Celtics Gr Bs
