Grasshopper 2 partial restore

Recommended Posts

A couple of years ago i bought someone's Grasshopper 2 that was in great condition but the body shell had been stripped back ready for primer, and there was evidence of a repair. I wasn't looking for one but thought i'd have a go at restoring it as it was one of the cars me and my friend drove as kids and to be honest it was a good price.


Body Shell after a coat of primer:






After a few coats of White and some clear it was time for decals and a bit of Black paint:




The finished car:






Its completely stock and has the original MSC and balloon bag. I've connected a battery and spun the motor, gearbox runs nicely. Haven't ran the car though.



Really enjoyed giving it a new coat, although I had to use re-pro decals which was a bit of a downer but they look ok to the casual observer.

Apart from driving one as a 10 year old, I don't know an awful lot about about the Grasshopper 2, and will look to sell it on to someone who wants one for the collection but it was a fun project anyway.

Great job restoring that bodyshell, it looks immaculate, and the car looks great underneath too, should sell easily.
