Right. As some of you will have seen in my showroom I have restored my 959 and I am very pleased with it sitting on the shelf. I now want to run the car occasionally but am not risking my restored body shell. I have a wrecked shell that the car came with but I wanted the car to look cool running as well.
The solution. Create a cool runner shell on a budget.
I repaired the wrecked front with fibre glass. Sprayed it on the outside. Made the stripes from Halfords sourced material. Printed off home created stickers as well as some I had from my resto. It still looked battered so I decided along with some poor condition runner wheels that were gold to spray it brown to make it look like a tatty, dirty rally car. I took a mold and created the drivers with some old helmets I had lying about. Luckily I had a spare spoiler. The mirrors and roof lights are just old plastic parts.
So now it can look pretty on the shelf and cool when running without risking any mint parts. Ive run it around the garden and I think it looks cool!
Hope you like my solution
