Well my bargain of a couple of pounds from eBay turned up today, literally as bought............

Still needs larger front and rear buffer beams, and a skirt on both sides would improve it's appearance.
Requires going over with wet & dry when the glue dries, otherwise it's a bit rough and ready, but the general gist can be seen of what can be done with a little imagination, small quantities of materials, and just a few hand tools.
As for the chassis itself, only given a clean up, dab of grease, and about 10 minutes running around.
Does need a little more TLC to improve the performance, with hindsight was perhaps not the best choice of a body, never the less, all in all not that bad for a blind purchase!
