It's been a while since I posted here, but I wanted to share this restoration project with you all, since it currently has VW content.
The chassis is a Tamiya FF01 front-wheel-drive TA02 model. This chassis has been discontinued since 1999, and are becoming collectible items. I happened to find one relatively un-molested, so I decided to bring it back up to spec with some modern equipment where I found it appropriate.
The full project build-out can be found here:
The body is a Tamiya Scirocco R GT24 CNG body kit. It is modeled after the Scirocco GT24 CNG race cars used in the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race. It is of special significance to me because I work in the Compressed Natural Gas field designing fueling stations that use CNG.
