I not have sideskirt moulds. I have moulds for front and rear spoilers. Yes maybe making is possible when i get time for it. The problem is; i don't know anything how to shipping to other countries.



I started building again. First i drop the driveline to floor. Orginal factory asembled clutch needs change. It are drived 270tkm, distance to rivets are 0.3-0.5mm... Shiftlinkage needs repair, left driveshaft is worn. some
seals needs replace. Finaly i build new exhaust system. Removed parts gets new paint before installation. Maybe i remove also rearaxle, it needs sandplasting and new paint. Also i replace brakehoses.

that looks so good!

What did you use to clean it so well? I just painted my gearbox (bright yellow). I'm having to swap gearboxes again so would love mine to look so clean!

Good condition under there, difference is I had to depanel everything to get to that level.
I have done something similar with the painting, still to do the gearbox and one of the brackets though. Unfortunately only discovered sandblasting after I did the axle, so it may rust through sometime. Will see how it lasts but wil probably keep garaged if possible.

Resin is the best for sealing, but hard to work with seems to take weeks to harden properly in my case, I covered too early with chassis black and then took months to harden, but I've still not used the front suspension parts yet. All my parts are heavily pitted so I may try and collect some nicer items if they are available.

Did you paint the aluminium hubs and change the rear bearings?
