     Lookin' Good. As a rule I'm not a fan of Gold Wheels, but they work with that build.

     For what it's worth, you might try and reshoot angles 1, 2 and 4 with the light angle you shot 3. Except for the Bumper showed the best detail to me.

Check what's keeping the rear hood from closing. Air cleaner sticking out too far?

I remember back in the day seeing Bugs with the hood sticking up like that--sort of a "super scoop." I think there was a kit available to do that.

Nice model, BTW! B)

Thanks all for the comments. My models don't typically get responses. Automobile, not sure where they came from as my good buddy gave them to me. He also provided the front tires which are from a lowrider set and I had the rear tires from parts box.

Would you mind asking your buddy where he got the Empi's? I'd love to find a set. Also, it's pretty common for the deck lid to be open at the top like that. It helps cool the engine. It's called a stand-off kit and they're readily available. Excellent job on this! I love the overall look!
