    Hi,

    I recently acquired what I was told was an FG Leopard. At the time I didn't realise what a minefield it would be to get replacement parts due to not exactly knowing what I bought.

    I'll, hopefully, attach three pictures. The main thing I can't work out is the front suspension, it's like nothing I'd seen anywhere..

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Hope it is still from interest for you.
    The basic of your car is a FG Leo with the Mecatech single piston brake. There a some parts changed on the rear axle, the lower arms are from Elcon and the shock stay is also not original it looks selfmade.

    On the front the bumper is not original, Fg use there a small plastic bumper, the suspension is also from Elcon this is a Dutch company. They have a own car the Cleon but they are started with tuning parts for FG.
