did the carpet for the trunk and interior pan, using a mixture of black and grey flocking, I also used a flat clear on the seats

great start. The photo-etching really brings this to the next level. Also, I love the carpeting. Nicely done.

Great job so far! I really liked that you mixed your own flocking. Much more realistic in my opinion

Thanks for all the comments guys.

I Finished up the bumpers for the 86, I had to cut/trim the fog light bezels to accomodate the etch grills that I painted black. I think I may go back and blackout the outer trim of the bezels though.

I decided against the Cabon fiber hood/roof/trunk... mostly because I want to have this done for a show in less than a month and I cannot get any microsol locally, so id have to order it and wait, and I work away from home 2 weeks, and home 2 weeks, so I wouldnt have time.

I went and painted the hood and trunk green to match, and added the metal transfers to the trunk lid.
