Hey. This is an OLD project that has been on and off for a few years. The pictures are chronological so the latest picture is where it stands at this moment. I decided to ressurect it after realizing it looked a lot worse that it was. Thanks for looking.

The paint was darker than I wanted it to be so I stripped it; some of the putty went away along with the undesired paint...

After a bit of replacement body work, I ended up with this...

I'll try to get in a uniform coat of primer to see where it stands. Thanks again for looking.

If you thought the original paint work was bad I can't wait to see what you think is good. I thought it look sharp in that red.

Thanks guys; this will be one of the first completions after I get set up in my new work area. I forgot to mention that the hood insert is an old Scale Auto Style piece (Thanks Chris!) and the wing is a Tamiya -32 item. The chassis is pretty crappy but since it's a curbside, I'll focus on wheel fitment and outward appearance. The interior is pretty decent so I'll scratchbuild a nice roll cage for it. I'm going for a sort of "Wangan runner" look with it. :)

Good to see this one back on the bench Tonio.

As a previous owner of one, I have a soft spot for these cars...now, I regret selling my '87 ZX before moving back to Japan.
