1 perfect body and the other bodies in ovencleaner.
The 3 contacts need some work.
That is something for tomorrow.

Today this in the mail: another Corgi Electro Rockets car.
But this one is green/gold.
The golden window needs a paintjob.
The body i don't know yet, maybe just a good cleaning.
The contacts must go in 1/2 viakal blue and 1/2 water.
So i have some work to do.

1 engine is working after just sanding the contacts.
For 1 car i had to do some work on the lose contact.
3 black caps with the brushes in 1/2 water and 1/2 viakal blue.
I got 2 of the 3 cars working, so now 3 more working Corgi Electro Rockets cars.
For 1 little black cap i have to make the brushes, that is something for tomorrow.
So tomorrow 4 more working Corgi Electro Rockets cars.
Also tomorrow some painting to do.

I agree and I only saw them in the GBofC from time to time but did not pay them much attention until this thread started up. They look like great toys for kids to play with.
