Today in the mail: another Corgi Electro rockets car.
One with a sizzler engine.
The body in oven cleaner and the contacts in 1/2 viakal and 1/2 water.
The engine is working, i was lucky.
Next thing to do is to paint the body, to clean the contacts with sandpaper.

Thank you,
I was very lucky with this car.
I got it cheap, no work on the engine(brushes are good) and the contacts after cleaning are good.
Next thing to do is the body.

Gold paint on the body. It is the best match to the original paint sofar.

The contacts look brand new after that Viakal bath. Good stuff from the looks of it.
