It goes on :) Cool. The dripped fuel is a pretty good idea!

If I may have some little details to mention, what's not quite in the right colors.

Usually the lids in the spare wheel area are black. Except, they painted them over some days ;) Also I miss a little black cap on the "bottles".

And another small thing: the tubes for the drive shafts are all black.

Please don't misunderstand me: your work is great! But I think, you could fix the two little things ;)

Hello Christian!

Thanks for your words.

Black parts instead of chrome looks pretty good! Like the yellow glasses too.

i agree!

That was a "fast" and really good looking built! Wow! Your weathering is awesome.

My favorite detail are the rear lights. Well well well!

But one question: how did you made the muffler? it looks like the oversprayed color pops. Thats cool!

The muffler was made with metallic paint, drops of Thinner (for cracks), clear yellow and clear orange overspray and many pigments.
