I got this FAV a while ago and had it sitting and waiting in a storage box on the loft. Recently I decided to start with it. Took it apart completely and replaced some worn parts by new ones I had in my parts box. It also has a Wild One driver head which I had left. Stripped off the previouse paint job and gave it a new one. I think this orange is not quite a usual color for a FAV eh? :-) I wanted to make it a Sand Buggy runner, so this time it had to be something else other than the usual camoflage paint jobs. Still not sure if I shall use the white front lid or the orange one...?? What you say? Still looking for a shift knob and a steering wheel to finish it completely.

It looks good with the white. Could do with some decals though! Cheers!

Im a fav fan through and through , so what ever colour these babys are painted in is going to look good - gotta say the orange is certainly an eye catching colour.... nice one

I dig it. Love the wheels on it. I like the orange but might suggest painting only the raised panels of the hood in white. the entire piece in white looks too much IMHO.

hmmm, not sure about the orange, but a lot of colors really work when you put the grphics on.(I commend you for not taking the easy route and going box-art)...
