So it seems like I spent another weekend stripping paint.



So it was out with the graffiti remover, plus warm water and some wet and dry paper.



This second shot is after 2 or 3 goes of graffiti remover.
But at this point it seemed like wet and dry paper from here on in.

Thanks Flo.
It’s in good shape for its age.
A bit of fixing/ rebuilding where the roll bars attach in front of the driver and a couple of cracks appeared at the back once the paint was removed.

I’ve already got the roof and lights parts tree, so I have everything to finish this off.

Really nice job !

This reminds me mine during my resto project resto ! It seems that those bodies tend to have a special "rats" look after sanding :P





Keep up the good work !

So it’s school holidays in the UK and today’s weather has been aweful.

So it gave me the opportunity to do a bit of sorting.

First off dismantling and sorting out the Mk 1 parts amongst my various builds and spares.



So that’s 3 SRB’s in bits.
The reason being.
One had the Mk1 skinny front arms.
One had a Mk1 gear box.
And another had the Mk1 rear arms




The shocks are Mk1 as is the roll bar. I’ve got an original set of front wheels and tyres.
I’ve got a tinted radio box that needs a clean and will go on this build.
Plus a Mk1 or Mk2 servo saver.



I’m not trying to pass this off as 100% original, I doubt it will ever get sold.
But I just thought it made sense to bring all the parts together for this build.

Cheers Flo.

I would like to end up with a nice genuine example of a Rough Rider.
Or as near as I can get.

I must admit the pics aren’t great.
