Hey everyone,

I bought a partially built Mustang, it seemed like a good deal but in retrospect there seem to be quite a few things missing and also some problems with it. Anyway, it is what it is and we're going to make the best of it BigGrin

There are a few things that I don't like, which I plan to change.
- The stance of the car, the front is too high and the camber of the front wheels is way too positive. Think I know how to change it.
- The orange chassis and bottom plate, I decided to paint the chassis and wheel arches black.
- The grey painted wheels, I'm planning to remove the paint and try to polish them.

Other than that it's a pretty cool model, I'll redo everything that has been done by the previous owner and probably repaint some things.

The thread is worthless without pics, so tomorrow I will add some Laugh

Started to remove the paint from the rims, I cannot get the tires removed so I used a thin piece of styrene to protect the tire.

When the paint was off

After some cleaning

Personally I already like this better as the painted grey

I miss the bonnet rings and pins, they are offered on eBay but the prices asked are insane. So I decided to make something myself out of styrene with aluminum rivets as
an alternative that resembles the rings used on the Eleanor version.
They still need to be sprayed and extra rivets need to be added.
