Made a little more progress this afternoon, got the door sills & side vent assembly's installed & the engine compartment cover & the side glass on both sides. Been having a little trouble installing the three glass pieces that sit over the engine compartment & attach to the under side of the hatch, they are at an angle & sit in recessed slits one on top of the other so going to hobby store tomorrow to see If they have any CA glue that will not fog the clear plastic pieces.

Great build so far. Your doing a great job. For the rear windows try using Micro Krystal Kleer. It's made for clear parts. If you want to use super glue, dip the parts in Future. This helps to prevent fogging. Fumes from the CA are your enemy, keep airflow moving over the parts until the CA sets using a small fan. Looking forward to seeing this completed.

Went to local HS yesterday and was able to get a odorless CA glue to glue in the rear deck windows which I may do this evening.

Made some progress this evening. Finally have the three piece glass installed & installed to the rear hatch & also have the door glass in & the door panels installed to the inside of the doors. Still have to install front & rear side marker lights & seat belts & belt latches & windshield etc....etc mostly small details.

Little more progress this evening. I have finally polished out the side mirrors & have the PE mirror parts installed also & the PE parts look nice installed & also picked out a license plate to install. I'm hoping to maybe wrap up this build this weekend & I have already pulled out another kit for maybe my next build.

Thank you John I really appreciate the support ! Hope to get this finished this weekend & start on the next build which I have not decided on yet but will probably be a Muscle Car of sort plus I hope to get a few built for NNL West next year.
