So I have eventually gotten round to polish the car. I am not 100% happy with the paint but it will have to do for now! School fees!!

Now the real work and money starts! Did a quick mock up of the mags and I like it!

Colour looks a lot better in person with the Gold flake.

Update on progress of the build, started with a bit more fitting and assembly work.

Drivetrain was put back as well as the wiring(still needs sorting), need Santa to drop the cash off for the carpets and rubbers!!

Image

Took some time but the links seem to be working, will need to get the motor running before I can sort out the fine tuning.

Should get a bit more done over December when I am home.
