I finally got the ball rolling on this project so I thought I would make a thread.
The body is the Pandora s13, Enjoy!

The first step was to get the fitment rite. so I ordered the riveted speedway-pal fenders to accommodate the wheels I wanted to use.

I mounted these with speedway-pal body screws

The tamiya aluminium paint looks spot on imo, im almost tempted to keep it.
Very thin though, used two cans=L

I put a flat clear coat over the top, had to use normal plastics paint though because none of the local hobby shops even new that flat clear polycarb paint exists =S

I will probably be mounting the bumpers with magnets or something so that they fall off if I hit things ^^

Started on the roll cage   =)  (my first one!)

It would look better if you make body lines. Although it's a very nice body!
