Default Custom build help

Hi guys and gals

I'm trying to build a bit of a custom offroad buggy and need a bit of help identifying what I have.

I'll be building this using a very old kyosho rally car and melding it with a used and abused midnight pumpkin.

Firstly I need help identifying the kyosho as I bought it about 6 years ago and it was 10 years old then. It didn't come with a shell but I think it may have been an audi or something and it's running an old GS11 engine. If someone can help figure out the model I can see if I can get parts before having to start fabricating them.

I've taken some rough pics to give you an idea of build. Sorry for the quality.

Ok found out what it was.

Kyosho peugeot 405

See attached pics of it all back together, now just need to sand, repaint and fit the body. Will also machine up some rear wheel mounts as the ones on there are a little flimsy for my liking.

You might turn either the front or back wheels around as the treads are facing each other...
