Progress! Not much, but i'll take it. I discovered that I have a missing parts tree in my box and was going to put this project on hold, but decided otherwise after I ordered an all new kit. I'll just keep going and use those parts when they get here.
So, i've finished the underside and started adding some photoetch bits. The brake rotors, exhaust tips, some grill pieces. I also did a test fit of the wheels.
