Car looks great but the background is not the best choice to show it off in my opinion. Maybe get some posterboard from Walgreens and prop that up in a curve with some masking tape. The styrofoam is just too distracting.
Of course that is just my two cents and you can ignore me if you want to.....

But the car is really cool! Love that limefire green....
Nice build 8)
