Finished this one tonight.  Not impressed with the kit, many fit issues.  But I wrestled it into submission ;) .

So ugly they're cute.  Knew a girl a long time ago with one, not bad driving little cars.

Looks good. I just hate those seats they put in that kit, way too narrow.

I generally build what's in the box.  If there are mirrors in there I put 'em on.  Where do you get mirrors from the aftermarket?  Thanks for the comments.

I don't know if it is possible to buy aftermarket mirrors but a lot of kits will have two sets of mirrors,usually the normal ones and the chromed ones...After building a couple of kits,you will be left with spare wheels,mirrors,engine pieces and a lot of other usefull pieces for your later on builds. I keep everything that could be usefull to me including old electronics,old tools or metal pieces,everything! (Im getting crazy on this though) :lol: .

 

BTW. Very nice Gremlin,i love the color!

I don't care if it has mirrors, generator arm, or skinny seats - it's a good looking build!
