    Building a 'mini-me' of my mk1

    Bought this on ebay a few weeks back and it was very hacked up so i sanded it back in theevenings, and am prepping it for bogging up the holes and then painting it to match my mk1, and then one day it will probably sit on th edash in the mk1















    Does anyone know where I can score some period(ish) wheels/axles for matchbox cars,or should i just buy another cr with wheels that i want?

    In the family: -MK5 Jetta 2.0TDI, -9N3 Polo TDI, -6R Polo TDI, -Mitsubishi S^$&box van
    A pattern seems to be forming...

    That brings back memories.. I had a mk4 Ford Cortina in that shade of green! I reckon your best bet is to locate a new car with the wheels you want - I'm sure the hobby stores would still carry the higher quality/old school matchbox cars.

    Either that or just run it with the existing camber and tuck.
