Its taken a while but its all finished now, after much fiddling and tinkering!
It sports ex-NIB 1987 bodyset as i wanted to start the paint from fresh.
Its painted Tamiya Mica Red and had around 6 coats to get a nice, glossy finish.
The decals are made by Parma, i picked them up for £3.99 from TMC, Nottingham.
Thanks to BratAttacks for suggesting chrome wheels.
I decided on Jato Chromes from Traxxas, with Victory tyres preglued. (£40.00 the set from my LHS)
They fitted very easily as i had some wheels adaptors in my spares box and converted the rear to take hex wheels.I removed the front bumper as it made the whole van longer than i wanted.
I have std Tamiya radio gear (with esc).
I then preloaded the front shocks with some rubber tubing so she 'sits' right.
The rear shocks were swapped for the std touring type.
The whole van is also ballraced.
I then finished the look with red wheels nuts,bodyclips and aerial pipe.
It still wheelies but will have to make do with the lounge carpet at the moment.
(I only ventured outside to take the pics!)
Hope everybody enjoys the photos.
