STI - Hack n' Slash

I'm making the USDM version of this car. The kit comes with two dashboards to make a right or left hand drive version, but the center console, which is different in the two versions isn't interchangeable.  So, I hacked it out using Hasegawa saws and stuck it back together in the us version's configuration.

STI 02-4-14

This morning I built the little photoetch vents inside the hood scoop.

It didn't go as smoothly as i'd hoped. It took a long while because they wouldn't stay vertical.  There was a little pressure in the grooves that they fit in that was popping them back to an uneven position, but eventually they came together.  It looks a little rough in the pic, but it should clean up ok.
