good catch by Aaron 8) . Maybe a thread in the 'wanted section' in the b/s/t area is a good place for that list. It will catch more action there and it is the correct place to look for stuff like this :wink:

Finally found some time to attach the rear wing and body. For now i used the repro decals that are available on eBay, despite them being a little bit too large in size.

Up next will be a wide front end, lunsford vintage turnbuckles, spur gear adapter and a few updated bits here and there.

Bravo and Kudos on the build! :mrgreen:

Not sure I would have been able to do that myself from a NIB kit. :shock:

Somehow I missed this thread. Lucky you to be able to build such nice and legendary car from a NIB kit today. You did a great job. Just wondering if you shouldn't have deep dish wheels on the front?

The rear wheels are wider than the front. You can't mix them up. Modern 4wd buggies are the same.

The correct wheels for 2.15 or 2.2 wheels would have been these ZC-822 deep off-set wheels.
