now that i have a Dremel Set, Im gonna do a bunch more cars. Been doing it since I was like 16 yrs old by opening the cars with a small nail and hammer and using a hack saw for modifying the height on cars without springs. Not many match box cars have the flat spring in em anymore :(

I need some BBS look rims for my 1:43 Mk1 anyone have any handy?
Nothing on hand but "kit-Bashing" may be your only option in 1:43. It cand get pricey but that's one option.
Check ou the BBS RSs on the Alpine. (The tires are to big but in most cases those can be swapped out.)

The other option is Slot car accessories. I Couldn't find much for 1:43 but did find these in 1:35. Some might work for a 1:43 Mk1
