This is another Rat Rod Mercedes but in zinc chromate.Fascinating mustard like color ! Can any body ID some of the parts added ? I smoked the arm' (easily done with a MMT+) so I replaced it with an original t-jet armature -now it runs great ! Now that I exhausted my supply of MMT+ chassis I can go to using modified JLTO / AWTO chassis's. I deliberately used clashing colors.

Now that's a pretty cool slot.....that color is interesting. I've almost bought a bottle of that Zinc chromate before....but I thought that it had more of a green tint.... :confused:
