Thanks guys! Hopefully I can get to finishing up the rear end soon. I still haven't decided what exactly to do with the exhaust. Maybe threogh the rear valance or even side exit after the rear wheels, any suggestions, photoshops welcomed. For the front I am thinking about going with a bar grille but am wondering what a thick grille like a Ford Fusion would look like.

I like the idea of a side exit exhaust for this car.

I changed the peakes of the rear fenders so they will match up with the center of the tail lights.

The rear wheels are off a Jada die cast car.

Yeah I'm afraid so. Try Pegasus Hobbies though they may have something comperable.

I am really enjoying watching this build and still can't get over how well you are pulling this all together.

This thing really has some sweet lines. It takes some talent to integrate all these design elements and have it actually work, and you're doing a fine job. Looking forward to seeing it slicked out.

This is definitely something that would be worth building in 1:1.

At first i was thinking what were you thinking ! But after I have watched it flow together it is taking shape rather well.
