Thanks coxbros1,
I will have to say that this one is done.
I was going to try striping the paint as itys not the best, but no, I will not go down that road. Hade thoughts of spraying the driver in satin or matt clear, but do not know how it will stick to the gloss polycarbonate. So I will leave that as well. I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

Took a pic next to the Tamiya F104W for size comparison.

The car looks great! You're fortunate to have found one and now it's in excellent condition.
Awesome detail work on the driver's head/helmet.
Definitely a keeper.

I saw this on Instagram and loved it...I should have remembered more pics would be available on RC10talk....so here i am admiring the build.

You did great on this restore. The ultimate thrill would be to run her on smooth pavement. :mrgreen:

this is motivation to start gathering parts for the F201 that was left behind (hiding in a pile of RC10DS cars) when i gave them all away :oops: .
