Here is #3 in the TV and Movie series I am doing. This model sucks as far as fit goes. I see why so many people use it to modify it. Not a good build but here it is anyways.

Nice job, needs foil on the windshield. Bill, this kit needs a fair amount of putty in front to blend the body work.

Mostly the fit on the front end around the lights and grill.

I have never used foil, will have to try it sometime. Yes it is the front that would require the putty. My first name is Brian, I will change my profile to get rid of the initial.

Yeah, that does look kinda open in there.  HHmmm anyone for a pro touring Monkeemobile?

 

Great work on it, Brian.

Very nice job !

This is not the best kit ,did you notice the wheel wells are off almost an 1/8 '' from side to side?

If you mean front to back on one side yes drivers side is way off from being centered in the well. I is a very poor kit. I hope Christine is better.

When i see this kit, it reminds me of what this company tried to do...
