I was thinking red and black for the interior , but while searching online for some reference pics I found this picture of a China edition interior picture which I think is what im going to try to duplicate. minus the Carbon fiber.

Well did a little more on this one. All the chassis and suspension parts are painted just waiting for most of them to dry. here is the engine without the intake being that it needs some little details to finish it up. (sorry for the blurry pic)

Looking Good! Love the blue. I've been considering getting me an R8. This may have pushed me over. Will be following. Keep it up!

Thanks! Is not a bad kit there is some fitment issues here and there and the suspension is a bit on the 4x4 side but I've enjoyed this kit so far.
