    Ozi 206 sp

    Will call this thread Ozi 206 to distinguish between mine and Axels. Several years ago I hunted out info on the 206 but then had a change of heart because I have a thing for the P4. Over time I have tracked the 40 more and came to the conclusion the 206 would suit me better, more nimble...

    Had to make new covers for the headlamps because the hole spacings didnt suit me for the alloy body. I had not done this before but was not that hard, thought I would put it up as it may help others. I decided on PVC as it is easier to play with ,less brittle and has moderate UV stability...
