Thank you, Daniel! This one almost ended up being thrown against the wall. All the upgrades tested my patience.

Excellent Superbug! I am actually doing almost these exact same markings on my next project. So how did you like this kit? I will be using the very same boxing...

Thanks, Michael! I would have enjoyed the kit much more if I didn't add so much resin to it. It was all a horrible fit and I haven't done wheel wells since. Upgrades aside, I don't recall the kit itself being bad - I think the fit was pretty good all around except for the intakes. I ended up ordering seamless intakes after struggling to find any way to get the kit parts to look good without losing the detail on the front part. Traded one problem for another though, because the new intakes required a lot of work to blend on the outside. Nonetheless, this is still one of my favorite builds.

It certainly paid out well in the end! I now know the pain of having to fit in much aftermarket as well, but the results cannot be argued with - great job! 👍👍
