Team Associated RC-10 Re-Anodizng project color lot #1

Post by Romulus-10 »

First I would like to say how much I like this site, it really adds to the collecting having so much info available. This is my tribute to what i think is one of my favorite American Design Achievements from the 80's. Many months ago I decided to bring the more lightly used cars back to life, while I wouldn't ever think about re-anodizing a perfect RC-10 chassis there where so many that with some work would look great again, and in colors never available. Here are some of the first photos, and I hope everyone enjoys seeing these.

Sincerely,
Romulus Von Stezelberger

that definitely be some different colors. I think the green one sums itup for me. Might as well be the color of money since it represents all of it :lol: . I'm liking it though the more I look at it.

I saw your ebay listing before this post! Great looking work. I'm sure a lot of guys (self included) would be interested in a quote on getting a chassis done. This site is full of guys already doing the restoration/customizing on their own, but the anodizing (and powder coating) hasn't been quite as easy to come by (unless you knew someone :roll: ). What do you think you'd be able to do a chassis/noseplate/motor plate for cost-wise?

Yeah the first photos were a bit Mardi Gras, with way to much going on. Here you can see the car a bit more, but the colors still look insane. I can't wait to start making bodies to go with them. MORE COMING SOON!

A thought those first photos on ebay were a bit busy so here are these so you guys can see the car a bit more.

A little less Mardi Gras, but not to much less. Anodizing like a kid in a Candy store.

do you do your own anodizing or do you have it done for you?

No, I work closely with one of the best companies that do everything from handguns to 3D camera parts . We just work closely with them, and luckily they have the same eye for detail we do. Right now they are trying to do a 3 color fade from the nose plate back to the motor mount, very tricky. But you don't know til you try, I might have wasted a chassis or it might come out amazing.

Are you going to sell the parts individually? I'm interested in the purple and green shocks. :)
