Starting another project…. I had to do this one as i finished the Gr.B Toyota.
As they're sharing the same chassis, i thought it was time to complete this one.

As shown on the pictures, this one is in a even better state than the Toyota. The chassis has no scratches and is nearly complete.
I ordered together with the Gr.B body this 959 body at TBG.

This is how i got it:

The box is really nice, the seller packed it bubble wrapped so nothing could happen



Here a few pictures of the chassis

A few more:



As said before, almost no scratches



The new interior and body parts



Manual, wheels and decals. Well the decals aren't the ones with the Rothmans logo, which says that this one is the second version. Anyway, i ordered MCI decals with the Rothmans logo and will swap them once the body is finished

I'll be watching this eagerly since I have my own 959 to restore. I know that TBG bodies are often smaller than original so I hope it fits right. I have the original body but it is in bad shape. You chassis looks like it is in incredible shape. Mine has some damage and parts are impossible to find. I am also missing the interior and body parts that I am jealous to see you have new.

Hi Blackbird,

Thank you we’ll are of the body fits perfectly or not, guess i have to try it out before the paint job.

I might have the body parts if you’re interested. I think i have the rear spoiler and the front light chromed parts somewhere in the box.
Let me check this for you once home.

I am most interested in the drivers. I can take the spoiler from the original body but I don't have the "bumps" for the roof.

I've got the TBG cockpit. It's just not the same though.
