or trying to.  All four corners split and taped.  Heat gun removed the tape but left residue.  More heat followed by Goo Gone did well.

Water spritz and three days under about 120 pounds. Turned it over, another water spritz and another three days.

Looks good. Did a good job removing the old tape without damaging the print. Probably added a $100 or more in value.

Eh, it’s alright I guess. Laughing

Looks really good Bob. Something I have never seen before. Would have never considered the goo gone on cardboard.

Very nice project there Bob! I have “repaired “ a couple of boxes, nothing as extensive as what you’ve done. I’ll agree with Jason you’ve added value to the model using your ingenuity and talent. Well Done!

Thanks for the positive comments guys, but I screwed up by not doing proper research.  Only after the fact did I find this picture showing the stage positioned above the bottom box not within it.

Saving a box Cox_me68

The top of the box is supposed to slide down over the stage and rest on top of the bottom of the box.  Live and learn.

The model came without the stage but the bottom of the box was in pretty good shape.  I just cut up an old weed whacker box for the stage and made it fit.  Cut out four slots for the tires and a hole for the tether.  Still have to fashion something for the driver.  

Saving a box Cox_me69

The car came with new number decals which I will copy on white ink jet paper and replace damaged ones.  It also came with a replacement drivers seat cover application that will replace some of the faded ones.  Also discovered that the needles shank is longer for these special vented 5cc tanks.  It's extended above the engine cover so it can be adjusted with the hood closed.

Firebaby's box is next.  Hopefully I won't screw that one up too.

Edit add:

I cleaned the outside of the boxes with well diluted dish detergent and warm water applied lightly with a damp paper towel, then dried. A warm iron smooths spritzed wrinkled cardboard. Elmers white glue works well applied to both edges of the tears then clamped in position. I backed up the inside 90 degrees with computer paper cut in 1 1/2" stripped and saturated with Elmers and allowed to dry overnight.

And.......sometimes I hide little clues in my pictures.

I'm about done messing with (destroying) the box.

I figured a way to get the box to rest on top of the bottom exposing about a half inch of the red base. Nothing else is correct. Oh well, it's what I do. Sad

Cox advertises a functioning muffler for these. If you stretch your imagination in addition to the on engine QZ muffler the fan also expels engine heat and noise out through the hollow tube "mufflers" on the side of the car.
