Don't forget covering the rectangular panel line over the diffuser ;-)

Looks nice! Will you present it with wheels on? Would be a shame to hide the brakes ;)

Thinking of displaying it similarly to this Mp4/4(depending on how it turns out):

(Also not my build)

I need to get moving on this so I can get going on the next one... (Very excited for it too!)

Got the rear jacking points and the header flanges on. I need to get the quarter panels painted/decaled/cleared so I can finalize the rear suspension. Also got that huge panel line filled over the diffuser. Hope to get more done this weekend...

And quite nicely indeed... :D
A question: desn't provide the detail set something to cover the "round pin" upper attaching point of the suspension?? :shock:
Honestly it's quite a blow to all the excellent job done.

I mean something closer to this...

Beacause all the other stuff you put in oh dear!!! :D

Definitely getting rid of those. I'll either trim it flush and add a PE bolt head or drill it out and use an actual bolt.
