Tamiya Subaru Impreza WRC 2001 (58273) Restoration Project

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping you can help. I have a Tamiya Subaru Impreza WRC 2001 (58273) RC car, the chassis is great and everything is running but I'm looking to restore the car a little bit with an original body shell, wheels and tires. For me to get the car looking great again I would need shell, plastic parts, paint (blue), decals, wheels (gold), tires and tire glue. Is this something you would be able to help me with?

Body is no 1825225

If you google Tamiya 1825225

fusion appear to have the body in stock (but might be worth double checking first) 

10005834 is the spoiler and other plastics (few places have this)

Ok, if you have no luck locally, yell out and I can get a postage quote and price for the wheels for you if you are interested

I find that once I have the part number, an Ebay search usually yields a few options. I typically buy from Time Tunnel Models, Tony's Tamiya Parts, JK-RC and Jadlam. I also used to buy from Model_build, but no longer do so following their foray into Coronapocalypse profiteering already documented in another thread.
