GRAUPNER Rally Sport (Datsun)

Post by Trass » Mon Apr 24, 2017 8:26 pm

Hi,

Here is my Graupner Rally sport restauration project.

It started on November 2014, it's in stand by since january 2015

All srews were changer by some A2 inox ones.

A lot of parts are hand-made polished.

Front upper and lower arms are deburred and polished, the rear ones too ...

An improvement of gear is in place.

And bearings are better than bushings.

(If you have some good eyes, you can see how i am a bad photographer) ;)

On Decembre 2016 i started to find an original radio box, but it's very difficult to get it... do you have some ways for that ?


Next stage : electronics !!!


To be continued ...

If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Can't wait to see it with the body, also. One of my favorites!

RC10th - You´re correct, it´s a rebadged Kyosho Rally Sports.

Graupner never did any cars or buggys themselves.
