Not into modern stuff, but that car is clean as heck. Great finish and photography!

What method did you use for tinting the windows? They look realistic under that lighting.

Tamiya has a spray called smoke, it's what I used for these windows. Make sure to mist lightly until you build the color and intensity, if not it will run easily.

This thing looks so real man, fantastic job as usual. What did you use to paint the rims? I like that color.
