No such thing here, at least I can't find it.
But I finally found a norwegian site that sells styrene and other plastic sheets much cheaper than others I've seen.
The styrene comes in different colors as well, downside they have only 1.5 and 2mm to choose from regarding styrene.

On other news, i've just ordered a set of repro decals, so now I can begin to plan on refurb the body. :)

Yesterday I made the upper radio plate, by combine the two broken radio plates I have.
This was about the only picture I took.
Was totally knackered, hard to stop when you having fun,
Did run out of power and did not have energy to either clean up my mess or take pictures.
I was ill for the rest of the day...


New day today, I cleaned my desk and took some pictures.
Ran out of energy today to, sat just a tad too long while adjusting things etc
Anyway, here is how it look when fitted.
Battery fits :)


I don't have the correct length of spacers needed so I used what I could find.
Axial post thingy and some Tamyia brass bushes :whistle:




There is two hights of adjustment of this chassis where the shocks fits to the shock tower.
I fitted the shocks in the upper holes to get the low ride hight I wanted and the chassis is now level.
The body was riding low in the rear so I raised the rear body mounts by using some wheelhexes as the bodypost bases are 10mm hex shaped.




Now that I know and remember how things goes together, I think I will make new chassis plates with slimmer design that will take a small 2s lipo battery.
Chassis can't be slimmer than a servo with the splines fitted in the middle of the chassis.
And I'm surprised how stiff this got in the end even when using some soft plastic sheets, which I now belive is carbonate as it will not burn, just smokes alot when doing a test on a small sample.

Orginal lower chassis plate is made from 1.5 aluminium, and I have two different sheets of 2mm aluminium in my material stack.
I'm thinking aluminium lower and some sort of plastic upper.
I do have a sheet of 2.5mm carbon fibre, but it's really intended for a another project.
Real carbon sheets cost has gone silly around my neck of woods, so unsure if I want to buy another sheet right now.
Then again if I use it on this project I can finally get this finished and shelf it and move on to other projects.

And mesuring the wheels that is next to impossible to find they are 1.7" ones and really wide.
So M chassis wheels seems too small / too much rubber when using 60D tires and normal 1:9" touring wheels seems too big and that to big diameter of the tires..

Right now my plan is to finish the chassis side of things, restore the body and then do the wheels if I can find some.

Btw, Do anyone know where I can get 1mm trim line tape to make the bonnet and door lines?

Nice work Richard. To lining joints, you can use a permanent black pen.
