Just like the rest of the gang, I’m also working on my team body.
While I was taping it for spray paint, I realized I still have a lexan spoiler that used to be for my former project. I’d like to know how you think about wheter I should put it on the levin, or throw it rigth back where it came from….
Here are some pictures.
This is part 2 of my teambody project. Last weekend, the day before the EMAC race day, Darksupra and I made the final design. I drew all the points on the bodyshells so we can mask and paint them. Reinier and Hotrod13 also have an AE86 body and they copied the drawings too.
Here are some pictures of the progress. Some might not be so interesting, but they are handy for the other team members.
Pile of AE86’s
Getting the lines right
Measuring the stripes so it’s easy to copy them
What it will look like in colour. Every team member gets its own colour. (will be a Levin instead of a Trueno though)
Soon, part 3!
So here is my ‘new’ drift body:
Bought it on Ebay last week together with a Scooby (That i maybe sell again).
You might have read things about us going to build a teambody, and you also might have spotted the TWS 86 logo posted earlier. Well, combine the 2 and what do you get? No, wrong. You get an AE86 teambody. Almost everyone has theirs in right now so we can all start the build. Here’s mine, and all the parts I already had collected for it.
It is the cheap R2hobbies copy of the HPI Toyota AE86 Levin. Mine will be a european one as it will get a left-hand-drive Tamiya driverset. It will be rolling on 1/10th scale SSR Formula Mesh wheels. I’m going to keep the design a secret for now, but keep watching as I’ll show it in part 2.
