CC01 - in memory of my dad.

Recommended Posts

Hello from MNL!

Here's a 23 year old kit of my dad that I am re-building. It was left in a storage at my parents house since my dad passsed away in 2003. Last year, I picked it up when I decided to get back to RCing and re-build it.

Here it was when I got it from the storage

That's great.  It's always good to cherish a car with history and CC01s often seem to have history!  I hope it gives you lots more good new memories as well as carrying some good old ones :)

Very nice.  I got my RC genes from my father as well.  We still hit the trails every weekend we can get out and it's a blast.  Build is looking good, will be nice to see the finished product.

The wheels/tires combo and aluminum hex hub extender (12mm) arrived today. Also did some re-adjustments in the front shock tower. Drilled new holes for harder setting and filled the dampers with hard silicon oil.

I like the screw/nut details. Unfortunately, there are only five studs. Should be six for the Pajero. But who can complain, this wheel/tires set only cost $15.

Change the stock plastic wheel hex (6mm) to aluminum (12mm).

Just the right offset I want. Not too wide.

New holes drilled on the DIY carbon fiber shock tower for stiffer suspension.

New battery. Grind and shaved off some plastic in the battery bay to fit the Lipo. Now sits there perfectly. Also changed the plug to deans.

Next is working on the body. I started to sand down and removed the "orange peel" effect from the previous paint. Still thinking what color to re-paint this. Will also add lights and modify the taillights and create buckets too.

My daughter requested a Teal color. So I mixed the color today and sprayed 5 coats as base color for the body using automotive polyurethane paint. Will cure the paint and start masking the flairs for secondary color (silver with a few drops/mix of yellow). Clear top coat next and wet sanding to remove minimal orange peel texture then 3 step buffing. Will detail the window trims, grill, light frames, signal lights, door handles, key slots and others too. Final touch will be the installation of the lights, front and back.

Will spray the clear to coat tomorrow if the weather is good. Then wet sand, buff and finish the details of the window trims, grill, emblem, and install the lights.

That is the perfect colour for the flares - it looks like it came straight out the Mitsubishi factory.

We had a 5-door Pajero back in '96 and I still remember retouching the flares when it hit a trash bin and left some scratches. The painter mixed the actual color to match the original shade and he used silver mixed with yellow.

Cleaned and buffed the windows. The stains couldn't be removed with just soap so I had to rub it down with buffing compound and a buffing machine.

Before:

Sprayed 5 layers of clear gloss top coat.
