Decided to elaborate on the headlights,as standard it is just the lens so robbing parts from a 250 gto (not that one...) have detailed them a bit.
Image

Cut down trunk lid!
Image

Even though it is aprox 24th it has the guts of a slot car..
Image

Wheelz R done.
Image

Given a squirt of flat green.
Image

Got the grille and steering wheel sorted btw.

On the real deal the rims are marked Dunlop,so using some tiny decals done my version.
Image

Also the rear lights are small and round,not square!
Image

So the rears are being sanded down a bit.
