Got this body from dazmeister(cheers darren). paint is Russet Brown sanded down to reveal the primer underneath to give it an aged look. a lot of parts will be added to make it more realistic, xr311 mirrors, scratch built rear number plate, ss door handles, glass making, and a exhaust. Sign writing will be added to the engine lid and probably some period decals in the windows and a number on each door.
***update 21/9/04*** half-way to completing a scratch built roofrack, with a period coca cola cooler. needs writing on and a lid yet. not sure what to do for a driver yet, maybe a standard blitzer item.

Hi, I e-mailed you a few weeks ago about where you got your wheels. Since then I have lost ALL of my e-mail including your response. Could you please tell me again where they came from? I'm also curious as to how you made and attached the roof rack.
Thanks again for your time,
Scott

The wheels look like HPI ones Scott, if not they do ones just like them. Check [Click here] for all of their stuff

yep, HPI wheels. try the new HPI vintage racing wheels n tires, more scale look and smaller diameter.
