Those bright colors should look really nice with a gold window unit.

<p>Today i did some work on the Corgi Electro Rockets cars. I restore the engine so now i have four working engines. But i have 2 working cars with contacts and 1 with contacts missing(black circles). The red and mauve are working cars and the blue is just the body. I'm going to try to make the contacts myself.
In total i have now 39 working cars with bodies, i have 35 original boxes and 2 cars where i have to make the contacts myself. And i have 3 spare bodies.</p>
<p>I didn't realise i had so many.</p>

Today another Corgi Electro Rockets car in the mail.
The body is good, the window is glow in the dark, the contacts and the engine need some work.
So the contacts in 1/2 Viakal blue and 1/2 water.
The engine is clean now and the contacts in the little black cap are ok.
The little black cap on the engine and it is working.
For making the contacts myself i need a copper sheet but in Belgium i can only order that in big volume.
So i found the copper sheets on ebay and bought them.
