I had to do some interior chopping to get the door edges to line up on mine.

How did you solved this Kent, did you moved the doorpanel backwards?

Schould they line up with the outside edges?

Looks really good. I personally prefer the channeled look (like yours) over the typical highboy, and I think you've hit the best stance for a representation of a real-world, drivable car. Nice work on raising and fitting the floor and tunnel too...which is exactly what you have to do when you build a real car like this.

or ... place the axle more towards the front ... usually that also looks really cool

axle further forward >

yes i know , also when you do it for real you can make a nicer round shape in the cabine .. you can even add a round styrene edge on the sawed out earea and make it look like it was always so

btw i updated the post with a nother cool option ^^

btw can you loosly moch up the body / chassis with the axle on the table , then put a wheel standing at the place it will sit on the front axle and take a pic from the side ??

Thanks for the tip Richard, I got a small update on the Roaster ;)

I changed the corners (more round) of the chassis and added some attachment points.

The grill attachment point is a good idea. I would thin and round it a bit so it's not quite so visible, however, perhaps so most of it conforms to the shape of the grille, and/or is hidden by it. The rounded corners on the chassis helps give it a more finsihed look. The stance is killer!!!
