started to play with a new project. This body has been floating around my stash for years. I think it was one of the very first kits I ever bought after returning to the hobby/obsession... I still have the box somewhere as well.
I am thinking of going the pro-touring route with this one. First up is wheel choice of course.

Wheel choice one are 23 inch Peggie Hellas in the back with 19 inchers up front.

Second choice are 19 inch Aoshima LZX

I think I like the Hellas best. The 23 inchers in the rear fill the wheel wells a bit better than the 19s. Using the 19 inch hellas in the front almost lends a pro-street look to it as well.
Now, to just settle on a color and such...

Just my 2 cents.

Kids, these are the kind of mindless things you can do to waste time when you're in your late 50's, the kids are grown and gone and the wife works until 7PM. :wink:
