No 8 is back on the road .... well, in theory :-D. iIt's only very carefully restored. - cleaned and polished the chassis (even the wheels & tyres are original) and replaced the white stripes with a genuine Tamiya decal set. The former owner has painted parts of the top in flat black with a brush, looked pretty bad but now It all is covered under 6 (!!!) layers of clear coat - even the windows are coated. In comparison to the staring point I'm pretty happy with the outcome. Only the wiper is missing but I'll sort that out in the next weeks. I have bought it from the original UK owner and it came with a 'Model Control Licence' dated 2nd of November 1979 and a nice ACOMS Mk1. radio.
