Ok Mitch, I now get what you are driving at. I wrestled with the same issue until the reality of making the "bumps" fit over my headlamps came into play. So I just fit them so they would work and clear the headlamps. (which are almost 5 scale inches in diameter) Visually I really didn't think it mattered as they looked good either way! Regards Brian
Thanks for the kind words guys. Brian and Ed, the rivets come from Model Car Garage photo etch. I think one of the things I dislike about the BMF covered spoiler is that I covered the rivets, rather than leave then exposed as I did on the headlamp cover hinges and tops of the number panel lamps. Mitch, the headlamp covers, "Greenwood Bumps" came from the Greenwood Corvette kit. The actual NART car mounted them as per I have done with hinges in the front and screws in the rear. I wish they were vacuum formed from thin sheet stock, rather than injection molded, for a more realistic look.
