Coincidently I am in the middle of doing the exact same thing. I'd love to see how you went about it all.

CHAPHOWTO.jpg

HERE IS WHAT I DID:

pic end. (should be first) I shortened the wheelbase one screw and moved the a front axel to the forward position after i used a shorter one with smaller spacers its approx. 3/8 inch shorter.

pic 1 Purchased a post kit. plus a round nylon spacer, a skinny hobby stick 1/4 inch in width, and a square dowel 1/4 inch in width.

pic 2 I cut 1/4 inch off the back pinholders.

pic 3 Stuck the screwholder into the nylon spacer cut to 3/8 inch and superguled the spacer directly next to of the front pinholder

pic 4 Cut the dowel and 2 hobby sticks to a length of 1 inch

pic 5 Trimmed 1/8 of an inch off the underneath of the body to give better access to the wooden body mount.

pic 6 Glued the dowel followed by the hobby sticks till I got the clearance I needed for the wheels. Then after the glue set I drilled the holes for the kit screws

Nice job Mark,

 

I am using the Strombecker shell and trying to put it on a Scaley Chaparral chassis. (I guess that means I am not doing exactly the same thing )

 

I do like the D, it is a sweet looking car.

Thanks Dave, how have you been?
