Radio Shack Ferrari F40 RestoMod
When in doubt, paint it black — the first one for sale from the collection…(Updated)
Meet the F40
The back-story of how these projects came to be, at least for now, is pretty repetitive. Found this Radio Shack Ferrari F40, untested, and for $13 I won the auction on ShopGoodwill paid out the nose for handling + shipping for a total of $37. The body and frame looked pretty choice!
Exploration of Electronics
From the initial clam-shell opening, the body looked great. The electronics also looked good, but who knows if it took a swim. The reasons things get donated are not for me to wonder about, because if I did, I’d go cray-cray.
There was much cleaning. Then testing by re-soldering connections. The car and remote wouldn’t come back to life. Now what? RestoMod time.
The RestoMod F40 Adventure
A while ago I saw an episode of Gas Monkey Garage featuring a wrecked F40 they went with black in the final paint choice. First I’d tried Yellow, as some pics will show (like the banner of this site) and then I messed it up. Way to go me, right?
Fortunately, Black is Beautiful.
