all but finished this car.still have to put the tortion arms on the front but done none the less......im posting pics because i wasnt happy with the way the front rims turned out.i painted them with alclad and it just didnt look right.they look ok in the pics but in person thay are off and with all these awesome parts dirtmodeler has i was looking at the same affect of trying to paint brass.the only thing i could think to do was buy the crome and nickle plating kit from micro mark and give it a shot.....here are the finall pics.the crome still need to be pollished but you can see it works great..i highly recomend the plating kit its about $50.00 but wourth every penny.

Where did the air box come from? That thing is nice with the carbon fiber all over it. I love the body panels on it too!
