I bought these on ebay last week. They were listed wrong and I thought it would be a great project to see if I could bring a few back. Obviously lost 2 of the red canopy cars because they were fried by the sun or something. The rest I think cleaned up nice. The black/red canopy one was saved! This first pic shows the condition they came in. The rest show cleaned up or saved ones. I really enjoyed bringing these old space/futuristic cars back from the trash.


Thought I better show the underneath.

Beautiful work on the Pyrotomic Bill! Very impressive, how new it looks. Thank you!
These little projects are always a lot of fun when you can bring back a classic space toy.
