    Been a busy couple of weeks here, I have gotten some done on the S2000, not too many picture worthy though. A few fun updates though.
    I'm replicating the short throw shifter setup. one good thing about having left and right side driver interior parts. Cut open the shift boot on the Left side drive center console, then removed the shift boot from the right side drive piece and inserted it from underneath. Little dab of glue and it was as easy as that!


    And the front ground effect kit I made is attached to the good body. Sure looks the part. A little tweaking left but I really like how it turned out.

     
    More to come!

    Excellent build! I really like the plumbing you did for the engine.

    Ha ha, I dunno, you may be on the right track with the hyper frustration part. Sometimes i think this hobby isn't as relaxing as it's supposed to be.

    Thanks for the comments. Got a few little things done this weekend.
    Big project is the pillar gauges. Started by coating the pieces with mold release and then covering with Bare Metal Foil. I bought a sheet of black BMF and was not really thrilled with it so I use it for these kind of tasks.

    Protected the rest of the car from stray Milliput.

    Mixed up some Milliput epoxy putty and sculpted a pillar. After the basic shape was there I pressed in some reamed out plastic rods for gauges.

    Once the putty sets I'll blend the gauges to the pillar with some softer putty and fine tune the shape.

     
    Started formulating my plan for shaving a scale inch or two from the suspension.
     
    Till next time. . .

    Fujimi makes another set that has an awesome wide pair for the rear.
    Your Countach is looking nice! White/Red is a great combo for those cars.

    Where would someone find a good 25th scale plow to add to this kit?

    Oh boy you guys are waiting on me! I guess that's my queue to get some bench time in.
    Was a slow couple of weekends. Was working on my full size car, not as fun as this one, but gotta get to work somehow. And repairing some Bathroom issues. Excuses, excuses, I know.
    I have made a little progress though. . .
    Finished off the tail light openings to fit the aftermarket setup in the Hobby Design kit. These are awesome little pieces that have a lot of detail.

    Finishing up the seats. filling in a few small gaps between the kit and photo etched pieces.

    I cut the side windows off and temporarily mounted the front piece to the silver body so I can start fabricating the gauge pillars.
    Still trying to figure out how to lower this thing!

    Cool, good to know. I remember holding onto one of these when our Walmart was closing out of model kits. Didn't really have time to build anything then so i put it down. Regretted it every time i looked on eBay.
    I'll pick up a couple of these. My favorite style full size pickup.

    Yup! That's why I love building models. Although, I think I would still build scale cars even if I had the dough.
    Brandon, your F40 is looking great. I love seeing them in different colors too.

    Amazing!

    Been watching these for a while, just too much for what I want to do. I'm really excited for this release.
    Did they ever make a stepside kit?

    This looks awesome! Can't wait to see more!

    I kinda miss that classic look.
    Watching the Daytona 500 i noticed that the cars have switched to digital gauge panels.
    It makes sense, but there's just something about the look of a dash array of gauges with bright red needles, I'm gonna miss it.

    Looking good!
    That Hobby Design set will spice it up nice. 
    Yup yellow calipers is the way to go.

    The S2000 is your standard Tamiya curbside so the engine detail molded into the chassis will need to be removed. Don't know if anything else needs to be removed.
