Hi everyone, I finally able to improve my Pagani Zonda by replacing its "15 inch" wheels with a set of much better looking wheels donated from my Maisto SRT-10. I also painted the door frames in black with Sharpie to slim down the A-pilars. This is my 2nd modification (1st one is on my Kyosho M3 CSL) & I hope you guys would like it.

Thank you so much for all your compliments. I really appreciate it. I's intended to use deep lip wheels for the rear but could't find a decent donor :pullhair :pullhair :pullhair . Anyway, the whole process took about 2 hrs, excluding measurements & wheels hunting time. First, I enlarged the attachment hole on the donor front wheel with a precision screwdriver....

Rear wheels are a little tricky to install. I'd to smooth out the rear side of the SRT-10 wheels with a sand paper. In addition, both sides of the Pagani's "rear axle" had to be sand down as well. Otherwise, the wheels would stick out too much. I then glued the wheels to the "axle" as illustrated....

Good work and thanks for the step by step pics EG318. One more question. Do the rear wheels turn? TIA
