Looking good. Does the emblem on the grill say 16v? Engine look like the 8valve version.

Yes, the kit supplied grill does read 16V, but the motor is the standard 8V 1.8 L four. I WISH the kit had correctly modeled the Valvoline racer, but ah well. Fujimi's MK 2 GTI has the coke bottle hubcap wheels of the 1:1 car. I'm thinking of swapping them in as I think the wheels I used look a tad bit big.

Jim, can I ask how you got around the fitment issue on the bonnet? Yours doesn't seem to have it, mine does... Cheers!

I built this so long ago I don't remember any fitment issues with the hood. Please describe your problem to perhaps jog my memory. Was it a tight side to side fit, or a clearance issue?

You can see the fitment issue in this pic.

A couple of questions Tomo.  Are you going to paint the fender flares black?  Are you going to install the side mouldings?  Looks good and it looks like you massaged those meats under the fenders.

Is your hood warped? Or is there something keeping the right side corner from closing.....

Oscar - No to both. I had thought long and hard about it, but decided I liked it better as it was. I know that isn't accurate, though.

 

Jim - That's the fitment issue I was telling you about!

 

Going under glass now :)

I had forgotten about the hood closing properly. :unsure: .

The body kit doesn't fit worth a damm, btw.

Thefitment issues, and some paint mishaps led me to build a weathered version.
