    looking good mate, still think it needs the little flares around the wheel arches that would set it off more like the real thing even if it was just plastic bonded on to give that little step.

    I am looking at this bit as i wanted the side rubbing strip down the doors which connects nice with the rear arch piece ,problem is the shell is sprayed on the inside which has a nice gloss finish ,the plasti card will be matt :unsure:

    I have been looking at my wheel arches and came up with this ,it would give the shell some strength on the corners as well ,door edges need detailing to complete the lines
