Bodge Job RX-7
Bought this HPI E10 along time ago and has been gathering dust in my garage for some time, Have some time off so i started working on the shell for fun!

Note: i did not buy anything for this shell just crap i found lying around in the garage!

What it looked like when i purchased it.

Removed all decals. Thicker than usual 190 shell so had to dremel out windows then sand and mask for painting.

ROUGH looking but iiiii like it ;)
