Chaparral 2D Sebring from a Chaparral 2D LM

The following pictures depict the original Solido 153 model representing the Caparral 2D that won Nurburgring in 1966. This allows to see how it looked like prior to be modified.
Three areas had to be modified to represent the Chaparral 2D that raced in Sebring 1966, they are:
1 – The engine air inlet box on the top did not exist, instead there were two slots
2 – The side air inlets did not exist in the right side and it was square in the left side
3 – The front end had no headlights in the fenders, they were located in the front of the car
The following pictures depict the steps that were incurred to reach the final result

After the mods it is no longer the Chaparral 2D that was raced in Nurburgring but rather the 2D that was raced in 1966 Sebring 12hrs with #11 Gr.: P+2.0 Team: Chaparral Cars Inc. driven by Jim Hall and Hap Sharp the car did not finished due to rear suspension problems after only 35 laps.
Next, you can see pictures of the final result.
