Those thick sidewall tires ... :wacko: When will they learn. Appreciate you sharing the build though! Anxious to see more and to see the engine built up.

On the topic of the body color, I think I am going in different diretion, more to come on that later, up first, a little more work on the engine, after looking at the pic, I see I need to touch up the valve covers in the holes and a few other spots , I used metalizer gun metal instead of a black , and I used Tamiya Brilliant Blue, so far, no issues with the build

Cant wait to get mine! I bought an Aoshima Lambo Aventador, and cast the tire set, specifically for this project! Very nice Pirellis with nice tread, nice and meaty out back , and very nice sidewall detail.

I am sure you are waiting to see what shade of purple I am going with, well here it is, I am also going to be using the primer as well, thought I would give it a try

And started work on lowering the ride height , up first was the front, cut down the attachment point

and in the rear

and cut down the springs

and removed a little bit off the top of the axle , just a tad bit to much as I cut through

IMG_2490_zps321b85d6.jpg

and now the new ride height, I wanted to go just a tad bit lower in the front, but that would mean having to break out the dremel and grinding down the under side of the wheel well, but there is not a lot of plastic that can be removed without going through

And some primer shots , and working on removing the mold lines, which are not that bad, also deepened the panel lines

In this months 5.0 mag they lowered a Boss and the stance looks eerily similar. Good job, and that thing looks wicked even in primer.

Oh Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! It's turning into a plum crazy purple Mopar!

Just kidding! I have nothing against Mopars!......! :D.

Nice work so far! Your photos have some heavy shadows. Try moving around your lighting so the shine and body lines of the model show much better. (Just my 2 cents for what they are worth).

I will probably still use the stock decals we can call it a "what if" they offered it in this color
