I hope "Mike" doesn't mind me restoring his car...
Here they are taken apart. I have to say, it felt really strange taking apart a minty Lesney.
A typical problem with transitionals, the suspension piece was broken and causing the wheels to sit wrong.
Not to mention bent axles!!
Red body is in the paint stripper, who knows what it'll turn into.
Chassis in place, awaiting its new wheels.
Straightened axles, along with the repaired front suspension.
All finished!! I was originally planning on refinishing the wheels, but I think the distressed chrome makes it look more authentic. Slightly used, but still nice.
And before you accuse me of making it to resell as the real thing, take a look at these JB weld globs where the rivets were... If you're fooled by that, you deserve to have your money taken haha.
Hope you all like it!
