    Well, it has to be a street car, because it has licence plates

    Just paint. Alclad chrome on bottom. Then Tamiya clear yellow and orange and a mix of alclad red and blue to get purple color.

    My friend's doing this too. He hated the molded streering arms and redid those from brass. Have to warn him about those decals.

    Very nice work with the radiator and fuel filter.
    For photographing small objects, i used a lens from old camcorder viewfinder. I used blue tack to mount it to my phone

    Here's a photo of exhaust tips to my Porsche. They are 5 mm diameter. Only downside of using this method if the fuzzy edges on the photo.

    Those stacks looks very much right for this build. Some bend or slash cut at the end to make them more menacing?

    We need those washers asap. Very nice looking wheels.

    I really like the use of the silhouette cutter. Please tell us more about using it. This got me thinking about buying one. Amazon sells it at 149$.

    I made bunch of those shifter knobs from clear styrene rods. Used drill as lathe. Some "machining" with hobby knife and sanding stick. Then polish and paint. I tried to find part trees with air bubbles inside to mimic the stuff that real knobs have inside.
