Love it, the slight weathering is a nice touch on it!!! Like the contrast of the aluminum front wheel with chrome hub cap on it!! Along with the rust on the exhaust pipe and rear wheels!!

Beautiful! I like how you separated and set the fender marker lights further back.

I've followed your topic and the end result is beautiful, just like the real one.

Great job!

In your Topic you mention  M&R Wheels, maybe you can provide the whole link, because it is hard to find it. ;)

That’s a VERY realistic looking KW. The subtle weathering you performed on this build is perfect.

Very nice. Those handles on the battery box, did you make those?

M&R wheels is a new company, I don't think that they have a website yet. I really like Doug Wagner's machined aluminum wheels, but I needed 22.5" rims for this build to replicate the real one, so when I saw these ones from M&R at a show went with them.

Yes, the handles are 3D printed. I originally made them for a different application, but they wound up being used on these battery box covers.
