    Thanks alot everyone :D

    As for the spokes I made them using a simple 5 sided cylinder, the rest is all due to the smoothing which makes it look a lot more detailed than it actually is.

    Some more progress soon, hopefully I'll be starting the interior parts soon and begin the chassis jbeam :)

    A while since the last update but I've been working on this thing quite alot since then so its coming along quite well. Got the rear setup correctly (involved redoing the whole rear end :eek:) I also modelled the final bits of the front under body like the fascia support thingy and put in a few little details here and there. I'm pretty happy with how it is accuracy wise atm,

    I do have one question for anyone that knows though. Is the front mount for the lights and fascia connected to the frame or is it just bolted to the fenders, like it is now? None of my references show this very well.

    Looks good! I'm 99% sure the fascia is bolted to the radiator support. It's probably also bolted to the fenders, but I'm not sure.

    EDIT: Here we go

    Also, you're missing some metal on the inner part of the fender that attaches to the inner fender (the wheel well/tub)

    EDIT AGAIN: Much clearer pic, you can see a central bracket mounting the fascia to the rad support:

    Another pic, can't really tell what's going on here:

    I'm pretty sure it bolts to the fenders as well, since I'm only seeing that one central bracket to attach it to the radiator support. How it attaches to the fenders seems to be impossible to find any photos of.

    Yeah, I've managed to find some better reference pictures with some quick searching. I can see the holes were the fascia bolts onto the radiator support, pretty much where you'd expect it to. I'm also pretty sure that the edges of the fascia and lights attach to the front of the fenders. Some of the pics also suggest that the radiator support is bolted to the frame at the bottom, although it is hard to know.

    Hey, I'm a derby driver, so I'm just curious if there is any chance of any sort of stock derby version? Little adjustments, like better secured bumpers. Maybe secured doors, hood, trunk?

    For all anyone knows, you could've pirated the game.
