Yet another quick model I created using only photos for reference.

This is my own actual car.
It's not yet finished - this is my concept.

For those here that are Australian - It had rust in the rear quarter chassis so it was cut out and a new chassis designed witha 4-link rear with Hilux diff, engine is a VK black 202 EFI running twin SC14 superchargers, HZ brakes and Camira power steering. Dunno about the colour yet. Either this or gunmetal grey....
I want to try and get this as accurate as possible..

whoa - without blueprints I have discovered this is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too wide. I narrowed the body and now looks heaps better.

Nearly time to design the chassis YAY!

Looks great! Only critic though is the tyres. They just look weird, probably cause of no detail to the sidewall or tread, but other than that, it looks good. :)
