This IS a pretty nice kit! I've seen it at our meetings and it looks pretty complete. You just add the tires i believe.

Really nice, I love this car model.

Some suggestions:

You could add black upper mounting brackets above front springs in the engine room. Park/directional lights and side marker lights could be painted clear orange.

Really nice, I love this car model.

Some suggestions:

You could add black upper mounting brackets above front springs in the engine room. Park/directional lights and side marker lights could be painted clear orange.

I thought about the shock tower supports and may add later, there is room for hood clearance.  I tried a couple of time with the side marker lights and my wash was just not working.  Chrome and the lines are kind of thick there.  I may need to spend more time with it by letting it dry and then buffing off high areas.  When I was looking at real cars the light is really narrow and just could not get it quite right when I tried it, then got in a hurry to get it without engine detail to NNL East for resin theme, then kind of lost interest it.  Just glad I got it to the point where it is now.  I do appreciate the feedback.  Always looking to improve it.

The factory color is a little more pail, but there is a yellow.  If you do a search on the internet you may find one that I wish I had seen sooner, it is the SC360 like I built, yellow, but with a green interior.  Not the most attractive, but I am sure very rare, seller thought it was one of one, looked to be untouched and very original.  Car needed restored, but it looked very legit for what was there.
