Wow really pushing the boundaries of the word "armour", this thing! Looks rather flimsy, but never seen one before so will be checking this out!

Been looking at it for a while now, so this might be just the excuse I need to get one in for the SIG.

Looks like two options for those strips

Glue them on the sprue or scratch some out of flattened "something"

Looking at the destructions, it looks like they are either sway bars or steering rods, I would make new ones out of a bit of brass wire or plastic rod.

looks a nice simple chassis layout, those little breakages won't be an issue when painted and weathered up a bit as You and Ole have said. :smiling3:
