Hi All
I have changed the bodyshell on my HB, as i was too scared to run the Rothmans painted shell i got with this car!! This shell had some repairs in fibreglass when i got it, so had to be painted. I had some Halfords Ford Sunburst Red leftover from the Scorcher shell i have just completed for my runner Scorcher, so 3 coats of that went on, then 3 coats of gloss topcoat.
I had a set of alloy Scorcher wheels and tyres that i got in a trade with Jweston (Cheers John!!), so as the original wheels and tyres were a bit tired and worn, i decided to fit them to the HB, to give it a different look.
So far, the paint seems to be holding out, although some areas have got small flaking sections, but thats why this is a runner shell!!

As always, all comments, good or bad, are welcome.

Cheers,

Paul.

I am a Big obsessive fan of the Holiday Buggy its a true Legend and i consider it to be one of the very best looking Tamiya cars of all time! on par with 3 others!! The SC / WO / FAV all outstanding with bags of charm !!
Your HB is One of the very best holiday buggys i have seen!! The red looks great and the finish is top class and the wheels look well smart but I feel that i like the original HB tyres just a wee bit more then the SC tyres on this chassis and how about some nets/mesh in the windows? But This is a luxurious machine and is a top example!! Top work Paul and enjoy! Cheers MAD-BEE.
