Default Got a Old Pan

Grabbed this pan car at the pit stop. I actually bought two of them. I took all the best parts and made one decent car. Heres the result after alot of cleaning and a lot of work.

This took a couple hours.

Before





After




Can anyone tell me what kind of rear axle fits this? if they have one I would like it. Also what model car is this? I know its pretty old. One more thing is this a type of plastic I can die.

Congratulations on your Associated 12L.
Looks great. Nice clean up job.
Yes, the white plastic/nylon is dyeable.
Have fun.

Thank you. I've been searching and see that a lot of the rear ends look like mine. is there any difference? Is there any source for pan car parts. I wouldn't assume they sell parts for this car anymore. Also on the front wheels are they just about all the same.

Just about any of the current 12 scale axles including ride hight adjusters will work. You can even update the car alittle with a top plate from the later version that used a micro shock ( think it was the 12ls )

Is there any way I'm going to pay less that $50 for an axle? Don't want to sound cheap but I race alot of other things and am kinda low on money.

Do you guys think it will be ok if I leave the metal parts on the plastic parts while I dye them?

Just ordered everything tower had for the 12l, I also ordered all the screws liquid RC had for the 12L. All I need now is a 12ls rear top deck. Getting ready to go get some dye and dye the parts.

Thanks, that was my first time dyeing accept when my dad helped me dye some wheels back like 4-5 years ago. I wish I could have found some of the kelly green. Going to go get some RPM yellow nuts and tie rod ends tomorrow, now doing the car in black and yellow.
I learned a few things like when dyeing on the stove to get a coat hanger and bend it so that the parts don't touch the bottom of the pan.

Thanks for the kind comment.
