Took the shock hoops and ground the backsides round and sanded them smooth. Looks 10 times better!

Oh man! I would have given up on that grill. It's little things that show up later that will set it apart from any other 4Runner out there. I know it was lots of work and my hats off for you on that one. The shock hoops look really nice as well. Keep up the excellent work!

I used a heat gun to put bend in the clear sheeting where need be and then dubro body trimming scissors to cut it out. Turned out decent. Took for ever, thats a lot of windows!

I like it! I like the engine in there, really brings it to life. If this body is anything like the resin Ford Bronco I have, then this a crazy amount of work, to make it right. Your replica is outstanding and you've done an awesome job with your Yota. The 1/6 scale miniature is perfect beside it even has the same color...
