222 rebuild

Post by Steve Norris » Mon Oct 29, 2018 5:14 pm

I purchased a 222 year or so ago that was in need of some major restoration.
After a few weeks of disassembly, paint stripping, sanding and general defect rectification I have now got a chassis in fairly good order. I will be putting this to one side and carrying on with other projects but I am pleased with the results so far.
I should have taken some photos before I started but completely forgot.

Here's the chassis awaiting work on the upper hull.
The 222 is a nice kit and I think a reissue by Armortek would sell well.

Regards
Steve

If anyone has any spare 222 parts they would like to be relived of please let me know, I particularly need a full set of hinges for the doors and access panels plus the boxes for the rear mudguards.

Regards
Steve
