This kit is nice....there will not be wasted time cleaning this one up..pretty high parts count for a curb side, 2 complete trees of glass, amber or clear, decals have all the gauges and looks like 2 separate seat patterns , its a 30 dollar kit but if you print out a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby 18 bucks is a pretty good deal , and all I went in for was some blue thread for the seats in another build........Sheeeeeesh why does this always happen to me?

Sounds good to me Pat..I'll be on the 3rd tire in one month tho'....I'll obtain that kind of speed because its a curb-side :) :lol: :lol: :lol: 2 months maybe....3 months it should look kinda like a Lexus......4 months for sure....5 months I'll prolly loose my train of thought......so any where between 2 and 4 is good for me :roll: :roll: :roll:

Much better indeed. I don't like that weird off-camber look either.

The interior decals were meant to overlay each other to make up the Louis Vuitton print. I could never understand why Aoshima made them as 2 separate sheets.
