  1. That’s so kind, thank you! I’ll have a measure up this evening and let you know
  2. Does anyone have any spare nuts and bolts for a Hornet rear wheel? Just noticed that I’m missing two Not the wheel nuts, but the tiny ones that hold the three-piece wheel together. thanks
  3. I’ve got 2 Blackfoot bodies to paint so got a big can of Halfords own-brand ... 700ml for £8
  4. I tried, I really did. Ended up with 3 coats of primer and 4 coats of matt black
  5. Fair enough, might as well do it properly. The more I look at the unpainted plastic, the less I like it tl;dr - suck it up and paint it
  6. I restored a vintage Blackfoot, and spent hours filling, sanding, priming and painting the body. I was really happy with the results, but I’m so scared of damaging it, I’ve now shelved it and bought a 2016 as a runner. I don’t really want to paint the 2016 as I’ll feel the same about it getting scratched or damaged, so what can I do? The body is currently very glossy, which I’m not really a fan of, IMO it looks very toy-like, whereas paint makes it look more scale. Would wet sanding with very high grit take off that “shiny plastic” look, or am I just gonna have to suck it up and paint it?
  7. Grill, tailgate, sunroof and roll cage stripped and repainted. Driver painted and fitted with new windscreen.
  8. Yeah, pretty much box art. I went for TS-40 metallic black which is gorgeous, more like a really dark grey than black. Silver wheels and silver roll bar too, hopefully to make it look less toy-ish. Was never a fan of coloured wheels ... I have some MCI decals on the way, with silver instead of white. Looking forward to seeing them
  9. I’ve got both. The tailgate is ok but the grill needs work. I’ve got some more photos ... having technical difficulties uploading them though
  10. Then some new tyres arrived.
  11. The body took a lot of work. The top paint came off ok, but the coat underneath was immune to oven cleaner so needed sanding down.
  12. Always wanted a Blackfoot when I was young, so was pretty excited when I got my hands on this. The body looks sound but is covered in multiple coats of paint. Lots of missing or broken parts, obviously no tyres ...
  13. Cardboard / packaging plastic? Or would they be too light?
  14. They appear on eBay every now and then, but they ain’t cheap
