Would you like any measurements taken??? If so, let me know specifically what you need.
Word around the campfire is that an LH version is in the works.

Sure would. Width measurement at the wheelwells would be most helpful with a guesstimate of what max width might fit with the tires unseen from above.

The LH would be cool addition. That boattail could nerf someone two lanes over.

The 1971 rear bodywork is slightly wider, but not by a whole lot.
I feel that these kits are quite pretty; especially so considering their relative cost at approx US$26.
If you want to go all-out, check Studio 27's alternate decals and photo-etch detailing sets for the Fujimi 917s.

I have several Fujimi 917 bodies over TSR chassis. They fit just fine. I cut the front axle in its center and extend it through a brass tubing piece between the axle mounts, so as to extend the front track and make it wide enough. Once the stacking is done, I use a bit of crazy glue to stick the half axles inside the tubing piece. It is a bit permanent, but nothing that a cut of the Dremel can't take care of.
I also have a resin-cast Japanese 1969 917 short-tail that fits great and has extended rear fenders as run in the Japanese GP that year. Looks WILD! I have as yet to paint that thing...

Any of you guys got an extra set of clear parts for the Fujimi 917K?
I have had good luck writing directly to the company to order a "tree" of parts. If you are polite in your request, you may be surprised at the very good customer service that you receive.
