Eric, the fuel injection harness is made from 32 gauge wire and the wire harness loom is made from 24 gauge wire wrapped with the 32 gauge wire then it was all painted semi-gloss black. this is my first attempt at detailing a newer car so it took some time but im happy with the outcome

thanks for the comment :-)

Great work!! At first i thought the harness looked pretty bad but with it all hooked up and the engine sitting in the bay its a great addition! And again great work!!

I really like the engine, I hope mine look that good when I try to do a realistic paint job.

Also, could you do a quick walkthrough of how you're going to blend the fender flares to the body? I'm doing the same thing right now and am thinking of simply using white glue to fill the gap between the body and fenders, then letting that harden and sand it till it looks nice.

hench, on this particular build the sharp line where the flare meets the body is intentional. it will be cleanned up a little but wont be filled. but normally i use the tamyia putty or automotive glazing putty to blend in flares. just keep in mind when you do flares or a widebody to build as much as possible with styrene. this makes your bodywork little to none also gives you a better product and something that wont crack overtime

time for a much needed update. this project has come a long way since the last post i just havent had a chance to post :-) it was finished in time for the gearz entry date but didnt get it entered as I fought with sizing issues on the pics and ran out of time.

Anyway, on to the progress

Opened the doors and trunk. The black plastic in the engine bay is the raised wheel Wells
