In may 2003 I bought a used Grasshopper (first release). It was in good condition for a runner but I wanted to restore it to a shelf queen.

So from may 2003 till august 2003 I searched for the necessary NIB parts. When I had them all I didn't have the time to do the restoration so I had put it aside for a (long) while. Just when I wanted to start working on it Tamiya announced the re-release. At that moment I didn't really feel up to starting the restoration if a NIB would be in the shops a couple of weeks later.

After some time I forgot all about it. But in september 2007 I found back the box with the car and all the NIB parts. I didn't want to leave it like that so I restored it to new built.

The original car and the NIB parts




Nice resto. I recently had the pleasure of rebuiding one. One of the nicest looking kits.



Great little cars, nice pics too!



Looks great! Makes me wanna buy just one more...
