Default Tamiya BlackFoot

I was wondering where I could get new parts and body I am trying to fix this blackfoot up to give as a gift for a stepbrother.

Most of the parts can still be found new. The re-released Frog shares many parts with the blackfoot and Tamiya's latest rendition of the blackfoot(the blackfoot III), uses the super blackfoot body, which is just a blackfoot body with a different grill.

Note:nitromaster has been getting more expensive lately, so you may be able to locate the same parts from another ebay seller for less money.

If you can't find the parts you need, let me know and I'll see if I can track them down.

Welcome to RCU,

It says "This content is currently unavailable". Do you have it set to only allow friends or friends of friends to view it? Even when I log into facebook it displays the same message.

Hmm... still displays the "unavailable" message. I don't suppose you have an account with a photo hosting site like photo-bucket or image shack?

That worked.
What parts need to be replaced? The body doesn't look too bad. If it isn't damaged badly, you could strip it and re-paint it.

The body has a crack in the hood and the windows have all been taken out and no where to attach new ones to.

Some stuff is still reasonably priced, but the more popular stuff like Tamiya's hard bodies and drive/suspension assemblies have really jumped. I was looking for high lift suspension parts(leafs, shackles,etc) and his suspension package looks to cost more than buying the parts separately.

You mean the side windows(in the picture, it looks like the windshield is there)? The blackfoot body doesn't come with side windows, just the windshield, rear window and a piece of plastic to cover the "moon roof".

The front and back window are held on by tape and it needs new tires and a new motor and the wiring is all bad on it.
