I have several spare parts of my last hb resto. I have to see but still have the main tube. But no body...

Hi Flo, original or re-release ?

If original I might be able to help.

I bought a cheap reamer the other day. I didn't know about these until I saw Jonny post about some he'd just bought.
It was new to me, but perfect for adding the rear body mount holes on the Sand Rover shell.
This is a really neat way of doing this.
Next job will be to start sanding the rough parts and tidy the back end up. I was using filler to get the bulges on the inside at the back of the shell, this definitely still needs work.

Times been short recently, but I grabbed half an hour on Sunday.I’ve dug around in my spares and found some original tyres for this. Not the best, but not the worst either, that I’ve seen on a Sand Rover.I had also picked up a couple of MSC’s recently, so after buying the control arm this is all coming back together from what was left overs.  I stuck in an old Futaba servo because it’s the only I had spare that would match the servo horn.

And with the body popped on.
Next jobs will be strengthening the body where it fits onto the 2 black plastic body mounts.
And the front body mounting point needs re- instating in some way on the chassis tub.

I think once the weather sorts itself out, I’ll get some primer on the body. That’s going to show up a myriad of errors.
