So it is Vinny. :D

I have decided to go for the 'steel' rims.
Image

Also I decided to change the headlights and have gone for a pair of new beetle lights - Tamiya in this case,the h/l bowls are only tacked in place as the holes need opening a tad yet.
Image

This means sealing the original headlight mounts,done but time is needed for the plugs to cure before sanding.

Two forward and one back,dropped/lost a h/l lense luckily there are two sets in the box..
Image

I am using the same principle on the back - using a fog light lens that looks right.
Image

Got some heat shrink tubing to use as the radiator hoses,blue or black - not sure yet though...

Made up a grille for her as there is not one supplied in the kit.
Image

This is a colour that I might use,it is Tamiya mica blue.
Image

Also boxed in the chassis rails that were cut to get the jag irs in,it is just above the arrows in the pic....- my mistake there....

I decided to do a bit of carpeting today,from Hiroboy.com - carpet is blue and the mats are black.
Image

If you had to guess the vehicle fom this you might be hard pressed as the jag lump is easily recognisable and it looks more like a sports car chassis!

Did the side panels,just a bit of carpeting being a custom car!
Image

Got the glazing done too,it was acetate which shows the kits age and it was epoxied in place.
Image

De rear...
Image

At the moment..
