I wanted to seal the hatch with some styrene but with my novice filler and plastic knowledge it looked like garbage so I ripped it out. I bonded the front lip to the hood itself and tried my best at sanding and getting it to look right, but its still off.

I started the whole process wrong by painting the lower hood lip and the hood seperately and then trying to bond the two of them together. Once I did this I sanded the filler to what I thought was good and then hit it with the primer, but with the coat of LACQUER already down...I got the peel :( Once I sanded it down and let it air out I hit it today with a couple quick shots of paint. You can see near the left side of what I mean where I didnt transition it good enough. There are some light spots, but that was from sanding through the primer and paint.

SO here it is

Grey flocking on the floors. I did this a while ago to see how I managed at it, which is why its done before the paint

The rear-end in this thing this bothered me (partially since I broke it during install) so I starting fabbing up another

looks good so far...eager to see more.

do the seats come "textured"? Or is that the paint and your technique?

They look awesome!

got the interior tub painted. seats installed. some small little details on the door and tie down strap in the hatch. I didnt think just the seats should be leather so I painted the armrest/center console and tried my hand at making it look like leather.

I sanded and painted the chasis from where I put the putty. I had to shorten the rear-end. I didnt realize it was as wide as it was and left the wheels sticking out waaaay to far, so i cut the connectors and sanded them smooth for a tighter finish. Im just going to hard glue them to the wheel backs. If they dont tuck tight enough like that, Im going to try and grind down the backside of the wheel to recess it a little more
