    Tamiya Blazing Blazer Rebuild

    Or another idea would be to cut small heat shrink tube and cut like pieces off 2-3 mm and heat shrink them on at the Center point Put a dab of grease in there before screwing up and imagine they be lush :-)

    Tamiya Blazing Blazer Rebuild

    Only thing with doing that to king pins its going to wear fast as the load is on one point . when it’s spread in that clamp it’s not as bad . its a poor design . it needs like a brass tube / bush pressed over the ends or some thing . you could take plates back off and glue very thin pieces of nylon / plastic and it go into the curved section on the clamps

    Tamiya Model Lacquer Sprays and Clear Coats

    I would give it one very light coat of the laquer . then same again in 24 hours then flow the last coat on . i always put my spray cans on a radiator for ten minutes or stand them in a bowl of hot water . becarefull not too long incase they explode . pressure in van is much better and paint definitely goes on nicer as it not comes out in lumps if it’s cold and thicker .
  12. Just went on that site and found them and by the tine they add post and VAT the two rear mounts and one front are just under £38 ! will cut and shut them if I have too . surprised there’s none on eBay
  13. I tried pushing the suspension arms down with shocks unbolted and was only a small amount of lift available . will have to look more into that shapeways parts thing thanks
  14. Hello I’ve bought some nice eBay wheels tyres combo and the body needs an extra 15mm aprox lift . front mount is is simple it’s currently flipped over but needs a spacer too to get perfect but the rear is more of a pain . if you flip the body mounts on rear then it’s too high but I could may be modify them to drop them down abit if mounted on top . but what I really Is aftermarket front and rear mounts . are they any available ? I would also look into them chopping and fixing side steps against the body like how they should be any way and not mounted off the chassis cheers Steven
