Ira... I am loving it. I love those fins you added to it. my first thought was some of those crazy cars over in Japan like that. The fins just go together great on this build. Adds even more life to what you have already done.

MIRRORS AND A MOONROOF!!!


I added some BiG 1/16th scale Sports Mirrors to the front...

Posted Image

Next, I cut a Moonroof from some clear plastic...

Posted Image

I traced a circle around the Moonroof on to the roof and cut it out.
