Hi, I’m new to the forum so hi
i owned a monster Racer in the early 90s as a kid, and snapped it in half.
being a bit nostalgic I’ve been looking for one for some time,,...a couple of boxed new examples have surfaced on eBay but I wasn’t prepared to pay the premium.
eventually after being patient I bought a mint example at a good price....the only downside Is the shell is painted in the wrong colours/scheme. I want to revert it back to box art. I bought a rare set of original decals, but wasn’t sure wether to buy a new pattern shell or whether to attempt to clean all the pain off the existing original shell. The shell is the original with no crack, dents or splits, but a couple of light scratches (only minor).
With decals being extremely scarce now, would you reuse the existing shell or buy new? Would the shell originality have much impact on its desirability and resale?
