I found the Chassis for this car on ebay and found out that it was for a Countach LP500S CS.
Luckly all the radio gear and battery were with the Chassis and the only parts that needed replacing were the Wheels, Tyres and Catch pins.
The Wheels and Tyres were bought from Tamiyaclub Member Purple Rob (Thanks Rob ) and the Catch Pins were found on ebay.
A new body parts set was found and sprayed black,
when dry this was rubbed down and polished. The Decals were added and then the entire body was clear coated. This was rubbed down also and polished to a mirror finish.
Next came the masking, This took many hours but was worth it.
The glazing was cut into individual sections and fixed in place, this was done because the glazing comes in one piece and was a poor fit.
All the final parts and details are fitted to complete this aggressive looking Competition Special.
