Dang, I'm gonna have to pick me up one of those Celica kits for the wheels too...then maybe build the Celica as a drift machine or something. Skyline's looking good so far!

Fujimi offers 3 different versions of the Watanabe wheels, so you don't have to buy the whole Celica kit (if you don't want to). They can be found at Hoby Link Japan for a reasonable price. I beleive they are offered in a 15" street version, 17", and a 15" staggered. I just received my staggered set with racing slicks in the mail today B)

All sold out, I just ordered a set from HLJ, the only one they had in stock is this set, its the shallow wheel set

Hey Steve... here is what the Fujimi # 19142 Watanabe wheels box looks like that I have been looking for probably for over a year. I haven't even seen them on ebay.

Not a lot done, got the plug wires done, fan on, and some of the interior done, and chassis, but I am waiting for the wheels to get here before I finish the chassis for two reason, one, I need to modify the new wheels to fit the Tamiya chassis, and two, I am going to use the brake rotors that come with the XS tunning wheels
And also clear coated the body, I got two full wet coats on it, but it needs to be wetsanded, so I am going to do one, maybe two more wet coats.

Bryan, I do to, I am a very impenitent person :lol: , but the only country that I could find wheels at was at hobby stores in Japan, and I am also cheap so I chose the slowest and cheapest shipping option,

I always had plans on using different wheels for this one when I got around to building it, just never ordered them
