another update on my SS project. This has taken alot of time so far. Replacing the rear wheel arches has been the biggest challenge but thanks to some help and inspiration from Superchampjohn I have managed to rebuild the rear end with excellent results.
I still need to finish off the detail - door handles, mirrors, lights, indicators etc. but I think this will stay like this for at least a few more months. (I don't want to spend stupid money on the remaining parts while there's still a 'sniff' of a SS re-release in the air!)
Hope these pictures give someone else the inspiration to restore a beaten up shell rather than just scrap it ..
Looks great Nick, missed the post today but your decals will be in the box tomorrow.
Wow, nice job. I love restoration pictures like this. That rear end is a restoration master piece, looks like a completely different shell.
That paint is soooo smooth. Absolute sweet resto the work on the rear end must have been a real pain but the work is flawless. Nice work cant wait to see it finished.....
Rere Scorcher or not, I will still love working on these old buggies, altought the rere will be bashed hard as runners. The job made on those fenders are absolutely amazing. A little DIY perhaps?
very nice resto and paint finish into my favs
awesome work!!! looks new built you would never know it used to carry such damage
nice paint job and you done a top job on them rear gards. i like the driver too
That is a REALLY nice restoration job! Excellent! Now if I only had my original SS from when I was a kid, I bet I could restore it now!
Magnificent Resto! Advice please on how you did your great paint job!
It is great to see you bring back an original shell. Re Re or not, the craftsmanship and quality of this restoration is admirable and must be very satisfying for you personally. Great job. Now all you need to do is add it to the SRB group SIG.
That's top work on the restoration ngbee. You can't even tell it's a resto job.
wow!!!! dude, well done on the cut and shut on the rear she looks sweeeeeeet
Sweet you would never no it was broke nice work
thanks for all the comments. I'll add this to the SRB group and make a more detailed 'how-to' guide to show how the modifications were done.
you are doing a grand job, looks fantastic! good work on the rear end.
Love it! Your restoration work is amazing. Close to the Tamiya perfection. What a lovely Sand Scorcher!
