excellent work so far.
Interested in the way you used the Evergreen bar on the front wings for alignment. I never see that done before.

Cutting off the rear bumper and fix it.































The side of this car is also not correct.









The front and rear bumpers are higher as the line between them.



At the kit it´s on line.

Good progress so far.

I started my own build, and I knew the kit was bad, but it turned out worse than I had expected. That means more fun, though.
I was almost tempted to build a slammer, so I don't have to modify the roof.
I think Fujimi deliberately lowered the roof to match the roll bar part in the generic sprue that's shared with so many of their kits, like Skyline and Mercedes.

Quite impressive to see the number of pieces your cutting from the original body...

Very interesting to see.
