This body shell was bought from Volksrod after its last outing when it rolled .However , is not over until etc. etc. and i dont hear any singing. So it is now back together .Shown here on 2 different chassis. I tried out a steering wheel dashboard mod to make it look like the steering column has a direction and purpose instead of pointing at the sky
UPDATE :- built up an old scorcher nose from a 'saved from the bin' nose and headlamp buckets , plastic card over the lenses and chrome tape in the turn signal holes for effect p/card number plate .This buggy runs with an original msc !! and those 915's for more grip

I believe the decals are sponsor sheet types , i resprayed the bronze top after the repairs and i added some sponsor decals where they overlap the 2 colours as i had to peel off the original ones to repair and paint- then laquered the lot the 1st chassis also features my own custom coil- over shock kits which fit the original SRB dampers and a box art front bumper

That colour looks sweet. I notice that the rear wheels don't sit on an angle in the first pic. Is there some sort of suspension mod back there?

Hi Rookie69 - there are no torsion bars on the rear , just the original dampers with custom made adjustable coil over spring kits which are fitted to the front too , you can just see the front spring kit in the 1st pic

Now I wish I had put my order in for RR front tires. Maybe if I find something to trade for them around here. Great job, good looking buggy here Keven.

Picture 1 is the best choice. Don't like the matt black nose cone.

I agree and the Matt black nose is now sold off (old pic)
