I do have some designs for the wagon and not just in terms of the graphics, but the ideas are not going to be as loud as the sedans paint, they will be more sunderstated like the mitsubishi clear side indicators

They are very cheap new and all i did was glue them to the standard moulds and then used fibre bog and filled in the spaces in the mould and then painted it. They look almost the same as fairlane ones but $20 new with bulbs is so much better then the 100 plus some wreckers want for fairlane ones

Well today I removed the venom rear bar from the sedan and had it sitting on the ground under the wagon to get and idea of the size difference and to my suprise the size difference is very small. The main issue is with the more curvey shape of the sedan compared to the boxy shape of the wagon, but all in all the job looks to be easier then anyone had thought

Today I ordered some stickers for the front window and the tail gate, now I just have to get the rear badges off and tidy up the tail gate before fitting them. I will say though that the stickers will not be trying to hide what the car is

Ok today I had free time so I started on some little ideas I had for the car.

So I have a sticker on the top of the front window and a little sticker on the tail gate to replace the factory badges

Then I started painting my side moulds. I have only done one side so far and still need to tidy it up.

Now before anyone asks why? The way I see it, the car is an ex cab so why try hide the fact and just make a nice taxi themed car

Today I attempted to modify the head lights. I painted the inside of the light white where the chrome didnt effect the reflector, but after doing one and having the chrome come off on the second I am now thinking I should have painted them black, so tomorrow it might be take 2

the light just been painted

and just a quick shot of the front without the li9ghts and grill after a tidy up

The head lights are now on hold due to stuffing the chrome on 2 left hand side headlights. I have how ever re done the grille black, painted some logos on the trim panel on the front of the radiator support panel ,paint the B pillar black between the window rubbers, changed the colour of the tappet cover to a different red and fitted 2 colour coded gauge holders to the bonnet dirrectly behind the bonnet scoop. A 3rd will be going on when I can locate my oil pressure gauge.
