I picked up this one about two years ago on a local trading site. Back then it was in a bit of a sorry state and had a red/yellow paint job. The real bonus was that it came with a new front bumper, new rear cage, new front suspension set, NIB bearing set and a NIB 6 volt battery. I actually restored the chassis within a week of getting the car but the body was a different story. It took me a whole year to pluck up enough courage to finally start work on the shell. First the shell was given the brake fluid treatment, the left front wheel arch was glued and filled and the left side roof gutter needed about an inch replacing. It took about six hours to mask and a matter of minutes to apply the top coats. The decals are genuine Tamiya. The exhaust, wing mirrors and indicators are rcgrabbag repro's (and damn good ones too). This car will never be run again.
