A new project to keep me busy for a while.
Apart from the thick hand painted green paint, this buggy seems in great condition.
The rear side tabs have come off so I'll probably have to attach two metal brackets to help hold the lower arm mounting points on.
I plan to strip and repaint in silver
Nearly all the parts haven't been trimmed properly
This never ran in this condition!

UPDATE 05/04/2019
Pictures updated to show primer on after stripping the chassis and body of 99% of the green paint
Still need a front body mount, switch holder, undamaged roll cage and servo mounts to finish it off properly.

UPDATE 24/04/2019
Can't go any further until I source a grey seal for the front cva shock
Also need body mounts, switch holder and yellow plastic shock nut

UPDATE 24/05/2019
Nearly there for this runner restore
Still need servo mounts, 2x yellow nylon nuts and body mounts to complete

UPDATE 16/06/2019
Project 2 has arrived which seems to include all the parts i need to finish this to be a runner.
Another update soon

UPDATE 28/06/2019
Basically finished now, could do with extending the esc wires to make it more tidy
After project 2 arrived with a perfect chassis i swapped the better pieces from this to that chassis.
Now this has the old discoloured wheels which I sprayed gun metal, ok tyres and other older used parts because it's a runner

1 Finished! 1 When it arrived Was really thick a small split needs repairing Now in mica silver
