Looking good so far! One suggestion I'd make (if you'd want to change it) is using square tubing for the front lift. It's easier to make a straight cut, plus it would look more like a real lift. Otherwise (if you haven't planned on it already), fabricate a skidplate with sheet styrene. :D

Its from Dupli-color Sonic Blue Pearl

I knew I skipped over some detail. I can still do the skid plate though, thanks for the suggestion I'm going to start on that one before I get too far along.

Nice build man, but I have a couple things to say that would make this better, no offence.

Take your windows back out and either use a sharpy or paint to do the black around the windows, it will look 10x better.

and take your grill/bumper off and reglue it so it fits flush with the hood and fenders, because right now it looks like it's about to fall off lol.

I like it though, just wanted to point out somethings that could be done which would help the model look 10x better.

Jared, from the looks of it, it's just mocked up for now, not glued yet.

But he said, "I'm real happy with the way it turned out", so to me it sounded like he was done.

Either way, it looks like the body isn't pushed onto the chassis all the way, thus the gap near the grille.

Pretty sure he is talking about the paint.
