Some years ago i bought a Jo Han Toronado with a tubular chassis  in bad shape , with holes etc.. unfortunately i didn`t take pictures.

I restore the body and i tried to make it similar to the one in the Car Model Magazine P1014435.JPG

Nice looking car! That body looks new. You did a good job restoring it. Do you ever build chassis on the Russkit jig shown in your photos?

Here's the same body kit using Dynamic chassis and wheels. Somehow I thought the wheels matched the car.

It's interesting that Jo Han never had mounting posts in any of their slot car interiors or bodies

In their original instructions, they suggest drilling holes into the sides of the bodies as one option.

So...

 

...how does one go about attaching a chassis to a body that doesn't have "mounting posts"? I guess you guys do this kind of thing all the time using model kit bodies, right?

 

Perhaps someone can "post" (  :) ) a photo or two...I'd like to see how it's done.

Where there is a will there is a way.

This was my race stock car. It has 4 square plastic boxes glued to the inside of the rocker panels (2 0n each side) then 4 brass fingers that engage.

You simply spread the body to take off and on.    A big advantage with this method is that the body can float a little, isolating vibration.

Sorry I do not have a pic with body off at this time.

The AMT Super Stock cars used 2 plastic blocks glued to the body sides, but this is the same principle using wood blocks. They are contoured to fit and silconed (glued) into place. My Toronado is using a couple of pieces of aluminum which I bent into an angled shape to fit the body and then siliconed in place. It may be hard to see in the photo, but the brass cross piece is screwed to the angled aluminum.

As I mentioned in post 13 this is the way I mounted hard bodies. There are 4 brass fingers on the chassis that lock into these plastic squares. You have to spread the body to engage.

This one saw a lot of races without issues.
