My lunchbox! I havent had it long. This is the cause for me getting back into Tamiya. I had always fancied one so when I spotted this on eBay I just had to have it! It did look a lot better but I recently decided to have a go at respraying the body. As you can see Ive not got very far with it yet but at least Ive made a start!
UPDATE 06/06/04 - Well Ive finally sprayed the lunchbox. The shell was a bit of a mess as you can see from the first pic. I did my best to clean as much of it up as possible. Unfortunatly whilst the body was soaking in brake and clutch fluid the left over decal adhesive melted into the body in a couple of areas. I managed to sort most of it out but its not perfect. As its only a runner shell I wasnt too worried. Just need to decide what decals to use now. As this was my first hard body spray job Im quite pleased with the results. Let me know what you guys think!
Its also now fitted with cva shocks that I purchased from Victor101. To fit the shocks I needed some U brackets so a BIG thank you goes to fellow Tc member Disco for supplying them totally free of charge! Thanks Disco!
Thank god for Mr muscle oven cleaner & brake fluid
New paint job.
Masking out the sections was a pain, but worth it!
My first hard body spray job!
I will in time source some new chrome work for it but at the moment Im not too worried. Im just glad to have it back together so I can use it!
