    This could be a good start point but would need unchopped

    I should have said I block it along the rails to start, and I completely forgot about files, lol. Been a long day

    Start with 180 or 240 sandpaper until its close and work your way up to 1500. Make sure to use a block to save on low points. You might have to rescribe the top of the doors too, and if it was me I would do this first, and periodically redo as I'm working up through the sandpaper

    I think there is a first gen hi-lux as part of a truck n trailer set. It was pulling a water or fuel tank if I remember right and may possibly have rereleased recently. the toyota gt I think is only in rhd. for the celica there was someone on facebook doing resin lhd dashes

    I've always thought the mk2 would look good 2 doored and chopped. I hope you will share some pics of the progress if you are permitted by the owners. Here in the uk folk seem to go nuts if you want to cut one up though the designer for jaguar has well modded one that was in the mags a couple years ago.

    try an architectural supplies place, they use it for their buildings and are usually cheaper than model shops, for bigger packs

    you should be able to load them direct to here, the limits were removed when pb decided to charge way too much

    if its on a chrome grille, I just use tamiya light smoke and brush it on. It tends to sit in the low spots and leave the raised parts chrome

    I think it needs a chop or the split where the 2 tone is raised up to the hood line with the rear end raised the same amount. I like the concept a lot though, just needs a little refinement but really not that much

    If you have a cheap spray deodrant, try spraying it on a soft cloth till its soaked then use to wipe the glass. I do this to remove residue from work vehicle stickers when they are removed and it works well. I would try it on some scrap clear first to be safe, I have never tried it on styrene but it was perfect on 1/1s
