Well done Tim! Great photos as well with good lighting. Personally, I think it looks great without chicken lights.

What seam?

Indeed it did.

Tim

Wow! Super job!

Not to nitpick (really) but did a seam get missed on the air cleaner?

Tim . . . are the wheels Duplicolor, Killer Chrome or ??

To me, those are your most realistic yet.

I love the way you use different NMF finishes to get that real life look.

Very nice Pete,

Regards,

Wayne

i think it looks good as is. the chicken lights may just be a bit much. you already have alot of detail on it.
