TA05 Chassis Restoration Project

A recent purchase has been this TA05 chassis which will be stripped down and restored. There are a lot of corroded parts, especially the screws and most of the metal sections… so I would guess that this chassis has been open to the elements and had some water retention!

Will be interesting to see how easy parts are to source for this, and will consider setting her up with a brushless motor, as she could be a contender to race amongst the TRFs, Xrays and Schumachers.
