Alright so the parcel arrived with a donor kit for its engine.
Also will be using the Foose kit to get some ideas for a new scratch built frame, as I want the new build to have a very low stance.
Did think about using the FD-100 frame, engine and running gear. But couldnt bring myself to part out the kit.
Wheel's ive already shown, paint will obviously be same as the original build.
Got most of the body parts of the tree's and done a bit clean up work removing nub marks etc. Now its ready for some temporary and sub assembly.
Here you can see why I was thinking about using the Foose frame. Very close when you compare the two.
But me being me and a glutten for my own punishment, I will prefer to build my own frame to suit the new engine, lowered ride height and Pegasus wheels.
So basically my plan for the replica is.
The exterior will look the same as the original build except for a lowered stance and new wheels.
Interior will remain same colour, but will be changed up with some new parts. More on that when I get to it, as I havent quite worked out plan for it yet.
And as mentioned new chassis/frame, engine and running gear.
It's going to be a fun challenge.
