I have revived my orange #8 1/24 Classic car but the foam tires are shot.  I'd like to go to silicon of course but foam replacements would be fun and acceptable.  Any info would be welcome.  I'll try to attach some pictures, but as a first time blogger I am struggling to make that happen.

Thanks,

You may get more eyes on this if you post here in this Slotblog category 

Production 1/24 Vintage Cars

 

A friend of mine sells a 3D printed wing hinge if yours is missing and a new wing with rivets?

 

This is one I did a while back, It may help you with yours :)

Paul Gage in Canada, on eBay, sells urethane replacement tires for Classic.  I've used them on several cars.

Best bet IMO for New Old Stock Classic foam tires would be Mid-America Receway. Before you call, know what it is you want so that they can better help you.

The last time I was there, they had an incredible stock of old 1960's and 1970's parts that are not on their website.


That's thirty minutes away. I'll be there in ten.
