Happy New Year Fellas!!

 

Finally I finished the most detailed car which I built.

 

It is a great kit to build but need some attention in engine bay and trunk. I suggest you full pre-assembly before paint.

 

A 23 months build and over 400 hours. I didn't finished before because I was studing in 2012 to be a lawyer. Was to be a simple

community building group but it goes to another way of detailing.

- Bumper trims shaved;
- Mesh on front bumper;

- Licence plate "Mopar" by Geronimo works;
- Windows replacement by Cliffo Caddy/Drago.

 

Interior

 

- P.E. seat belts by Mr. Model;

Hard for me to say, because I don't like this car or these kinds of customs, but

SUPERB paint and detail, and something you should be proud to show to others and display at home.

Crazy clean! I built one of these as well, but just stock straight out of the box. I agree with you about pre-assembly under the hood before painting.

 Only thing I can say is WOW! Really like the way you did the speakers in the back. Exterior is great.

And the wheels.
