The 2 to 1 project is now complete (sort of).
I now have a working GV Rex-X using most of the original parts from the 2 partial cars:
The car is running well although it currently has a spare SH .21 engine that I had. I have also upgraded the original 35 MHz radio gear to 2.4 GHz and replaced the servos.
I am still missing a front bumper for this as the one I have is too badly damaged to use. I might try to get on eBay or even get a custom one 3D printed.
The weather forecast for this weekend is very bad but i'll get a video or two when the weather improves.
