What a terrific job. I really like it. Your mods go perfectly with the car. What did the wheels come off from?
Thanks for sharing.

... thank you ...





Thank you for the praise.

The rims are from (??) ... gosh,
I'm trying to remember ... I do know
they're from either a JADA or MAISTO.
But not certain ... nor of which casting.
:confused:

The rear tires are from an earlier 100% HW casting.
I had to figure a way to get them to fit the same-size
rims (as the front) and yet be thicker, wider tires than the
front ones ... with a slightly taller side-profile. Success at last.

Much better color and wheel choice. You were lucky to have one that retained the wing. I had to fabricate one for a Chaparral I did way back. But those weren't well attached from the start. This one looks a bit better affixed.

Thank you for the kind praise.

This is actually a RedLineShop
repro-wing ... even better quality
than the original production piece.

I went through 2 original ones (which
had some damage) to practice in re-shaping
the final wing. Yes ... it is very-well designed
to remain in-place ... yet I further secured mine
with clear fingernail polish (up within the casting).
:rolleyes: ;)

Thank you 'Jitte'.

This sweet-grape 'ride' is
one of my favorites as well.
