FR-86 Project Checkpoint 86%

It's time to get a handle on what is remaining for the FR-D and the 86 Trueno. 

The concept seemed simple...

And started out 2 months ago. 

There's over 100 hours invested so far but the results are spectacular. 

I've not had any pressure to complete in any timeframe.

The key to this build is flexibility. It has mixed personalities. It's a mix of street and '02 D1 style. I'll also be able to run Front or rear bumperless, Fender less, Bonnet less , lights up or down. It wont get boring.

In D1 mode the sponsors will be seen. Meshed front bumper totally changes the look. 

And when the rear is exposed  it looks even tougher. I had a HPI 86 rear wing, but it was just a little too wide. So I mounted it GT Style and doesn't look out of place at all.
