I scribed all door lines, trim lines, etc after all the sanding was done. Then I sprayed it with 1 light coat of primer and sanded it to find the spots that needed work. This is the result of 3 light coats and one good coat of "Filler/Sandable Primer" by DupliColor. Then a light polish to smooth it out nicely.
P.S. Thanx to all those who have followed this build! It's been a blast to build this 1 off ride! David@Minidreams I appreciate you lookin' in your stash for another casket for me. It's much appreciated.

First, I took the "stock" trim and lined it up on the car.
Then Cut the front and rear door sections free.
Then I trimmed the new quarter panel trim.
Then I took another "stock" trim from another kit and cut it into 3 pieces. Only need the front door piece.
Ok, Need to locate the pin in relation to the body and make a new hole on the body for this to fit into.
Then place body trim in position and cut the excess off the rear secton.
And now you have the side trim for the extended body! Easy! LoL Just repeat for the passenger side.
Enjoy till next update!

Also, the triangular area needs to be cleaned up.
Don't give up! This has great possibilities.

Well, I've pulled this wreck out of the box to see what I can save. I had to make new sides out of one solid piece of styrene as in one move the rear body work was crushed, but the body held together like Fort Knox. So here's the improved rear body work. Now the very rear of it is going to prove challenging but I'm sure I can pull it off. LoL Think I'm going to need a new rear door. It'll get sorted.
Better sculpted side panels that blend better with the body:

Cool project! I never saw this thread before so it's all new to me! And I've never seen a 1:1 either. Looking forward to seeing it completed.

Thanx everyone. The comments are most welcomed as they help keep me motivated.
Well, the rear end came together better than I thought. I have the rear braces glued in tight, corners cut, shaved, and contoured. The roof is done the same way, and I cut the door opening a tad bigger than the hole to give me a door jamb for the door to set against.
This is to show how much longer than stock the car is.
And a couple of mock up shots where its on it's wheels. Not bad if I say so myself.
