An update before the long weekend disappears.

I took the old MSC apart and gave it a bit of a clean.
Some if the wiring needs a tidy up.

I also spent a bit of time trying to clean up the mechanism tray. It still needs work.
 No i hi
I also did a trawl of the spares boxes and came up with some well nuts, the antenna holder, a 380 motor and pinion, and I also found a rod that’s perfect for the speed controller.
I bought a mixed bag of bits a while ago, which the seller said were from the first 10 models, so I’m hoping I’ll find some of the fixings I need to try and keep this as close to original as possible.
I also bought a couple of things for this resto over the weekend, so I’m just waiting on them.
One is the motor bracket and the other is an original bumper, it wasn’t cheap, but I seller did accept an offer below his asking price so I’m happy enough. I also bought some 3D printed body clips, they are black plastic and fix into the mechanism tray.

Missing parts at the minute, the steering rod, which is attached to the servo and goes to the servo saver, but I’m sure I can make something up for that and the front tyres. Again I’m sure I can find something for the short term. 
I’m also missing the servo brackets, worst case scenario I’ll just attach the servos straight to the mechanism tray.
