Flo, I believe I can help with the mirrors mate, you'll have to be very patient with me as I have a few jobs for people I need to finish before.

I copied these, it's the black ones isn't it?

p.s I am very likely to list some original decals on eBay this weekend.

It is a non-CS chassis, cause the servo plates have the big holes (fixation of the plates with nut and bolt). CS chassis is with threathed hole in the servo plate.
So defintely 58010.
Wonder how the grip must have been with the 540 motor and rubber tyres. :huh: Not that great I suspect :whistle:
I do have a spare set of (original!) decals and the fixation for the bodyset. fixations are on a display bodyset (with bad chrome on front wing) though and hard to sell seperately.
Let me know if I can help.

Thanks for your advices guys.


The body looks like it's already been painted, without knowing exactly what sort of paint was used I'm not sure I'd put clear over it due to the possibility of any ugly paint reaction. :(

If you strip the paint off, I can't see the surface being an even enough colour to work. I think strip, san, primer, sand, colour then clear will be the way to go :)

Wow, I really thought that had been painted in something like Humbrol Diesel Blue :blink:

Seems like the perfect excuse to break out the French Blue :)
