    So, had a try at the mirros, not the exact shape but somewhat close :rolleyes:
    --- Post updated ---
    Had a go at the grill too, didnt take long (approx 10 min as i thought earlier) after i wrapped my head around how to make it. A flat plane with the contours of one individual line of the grill. Chamfered (for explanation; adds smoothness) the diagonal edges. Extruded the outer edges inwards the car. Chamfered those edges. Done :oops:

    Wow, looks like in the photo, amazing quality! With mirrors you have everything wonderful. Do you plan to make a body kit for a hardtop body, like a police RS-2 configuration? (Sorry for the bad quality of the photo).
    It would not be bad to add a complete set RS with engine DOHC FJ20ET 205HP Intercooler, body "Coupe" DR30, LSD-reducer:
    --- Post updated ---
    And the police configurations RS1 - RS3 (Sorry for two messages at the same time):

    I got your PM, will keep that in mind!

    Thanks! No plans on a police version but the Turbo-RS will be the one im aming for to begin with so itll be a coupe, have the FJ20ET and a limites slip diff :) As stated before i havent planned on making the jbeam, getting help with that. It takes very little time to produce something in 3D but making a good jbeam takes probably more time so i dont want to put too much pressure on that person.

    Thank you for listening to our advice and ideas, you are very kind. You can speculate about jbeam, you can do a survey or ask someone from the current modders, I do not know who to advise, so I can not help you.

    Put some more work into making the engine itself. Apparently ive decided that on eof the engines is going to be a rb26 (probably the DETT, the DE only came in 4 door r32 Autech version.. Hey.. might be a good engine as the N/A alternative :rolleyes: )

    Abit more detailed than needed but hey, can always make them less detailed if laggy :p

    Wow, that looks very nice! Makes my Focus look really amateuristic! :p
    Can't wait to see how it looks once finished!
    --- Post updated ---
    Also wondering... how do you get those panel gaps that good?

    According to this video, Skylines had a diesel engine too (R31 was the last), is it possible to make it? I was just wondering.

    That would be the RD28 i guess, a few has been paired to a RB head, not ideal though.
    No plans for that now but i never say never.

    Exhaust manifold and turbos done (except exhaust housing downpipe flange). Focusing on one engine to begin with, making more alternatives before a potential release would push the release to much imo. Engine need to be tilted slightly but thatll be done further down the road. Meshsmooth added to the second pic, with the red covers.
