This started out as a saved from the bin project someone had thrown out . It was in a bad state . I sourced many parts with the help of Lewis (member KingCab06) - a massive thanks mate . I hand made many of the alu chassis parts and rear axle blocks - which have RS bearings fitted . I have an FRP Competition chassis plate to fit instead of the alu one . I sourced an original Capri shell and modifed / scratch built it to replicate a 1:1 Zakspeed shell . It will be liveried in the classic White / Red Wurth scheme eventually

how it started inspiration original shell as I got it

Wow dude, very impressive work. The chassis looks amazing. Cant wait for the finished product. BTW, did those cars come with that shell?

Beautiful resto buddy!! Saved that one from the scrap heap, and now she looks a million $$
Great job!

Thanks guys , @puffdog , the shell is the Mardave original Capri shell for that chassis , but this one is much modified from stock . All of the rear detail and wing is custom built and the window cut outs are reshaped to look more 'Capri' shape . I'll put up a pic of the original shell / wing
