Also went to RC Mart to get the following:

I bought a Nissan S15 Silvia painted body with spoiler and light buckets off ebay for about US$18.
Also went to a local toolshop and got a 3mm 0.5 tap to ream the threads as per advice given here.
I started my build yesterday and I'm halfway through - tapped every hole as I went. Went back to Kwong Wah St this afternoon to get some 1mm washers and the X27 SSK driveshafts.
Thanks to everyone here for taking the time to share your knowledge and experience
It almost certainly would have ended in tears without this thread!
