Next step, fidding the right screws (titanium or stainless steel) and a lower black spring cup, making the fiberglass battery brace, building a gear cover, fidding the right speedo heatsink and fitting the electronics.

Please help me with Mr Lexan to make me a RCPS Mirage SS shell WITH airscoop, send him a wave of PM asking him this special release .
Him also looking for Sanyo florescent pink stickers and Kimbrough black servo orns to fit Airtronics steering servo[/quote]

I didn't post the last updates of this project. The main update concern the bodyshell. I had the chance to be in touch from a great friend, of an exclusis original RCPS Mirage SS with the side airscoop. So after giving it to PRP in order to have it perfectly painted, and a sharpie session, it was time to start the so waited stickering process.

After them, and when looking around to source the couple of missing decals I spent some times to complete the rear wing.

An happy letter came from the UK some days after. The properly sized white Kimbrough complete the rooth. But really quickly followed by another happy letter also from UK with one of the smallest decal of the shell, the black HPI.

It was time to fit the chassis with them for the first time, after so many years from the start of the project.

The end, I finally be able to source the last decal, the rarest of the project. I wont use any replica decal as evrything was original so I kept my head aware all around and finaly had a chance to get it from the US, the flo pink Team Turbo !

Looks great Cedric. I'll be in "paint and stickers" mode soon with my modern Kinwald replica. Using a Pro-line Mirage SS body so it won't have the scoop, but it's alright. It's not an authentic replica anyway. Just figured that would be more appropriate than a Turbo Mirage.
