Here's a 1/32 Lotus body by Strombecker I bought on eBay for $2.00. It's been a year since it's been done but thought I would share it here. Chris4q is my inspiration...his cars are immaculate!

Nice resto on the Lotus Body, and with that chassis and engine it should be a quick race car.

CHEERS!

Yeah.... chris is a great builder but he spends a ton of time on the paint. More than the average modeler on this forum I can tell you!
Very nice Lotus and great save. I have a couple of bodies like that waiting for attention... someday. B)

You did an amazing resto. Looks great. I would be nervous of coming off the track and hitting the wall and messing it all up. lol
