A little step... The parking light guard... Looks a easy thing to do, but it is not, the front part it is bent in 4 places!

I draw this for explain how the parking light guard is...

The parking light that are on the kit are a piece of white resin, I replace them with some I had on my spare parts. :)

Before paint the body I drill new holes for the parking light.
Here how they are on the kit.

And here on the new position, more on the edge of the fender.

Thank you! The bags are from a piece of elastic.

The headlight lens are not clear... :( I try to put different surfaces under them, like silver, chrome for see if they looks good, but they don't look. The lens looks flat, or like when you drop superglue on a piece that is clear. I think to use some headlight that I have on my spare parts, that they are perfect clear. :D But I need to resize them... :-/
Her the lens from the kit and the "new" one. bottom left the kit, top left the New one, top right kit, and bottom the new lens. Look a the difference. :)

Here the headlight finished, I add the back part, some chrome in the middle and the bezel.

The kit doesn't have door handle, here they are.

I'm totally taken by this thread, especially by the ton of added details....turning that very poor resin kit into a highly detailed model is nothing short of amazing!

I really like this build. The only thing I like better is the attitude you seem to have - the kit has no door handles, so, I'll make some.

We can all learn quite a bit by everything going on here.

Thank you Erik! You need to have this attitude not only on a model, but also on the life. :) For this build also helped me the reply on the forum, people encouraging me to go forward. Many times I though to trash this kit. :)
