Thanks....i tries to do my best with this big model

I’m finally arrived to marriage chassis and bodyshell

Before make this, i stripped out the chrome from rear badge and I repainted them in semi matt black

I adjusted the height of door hinges to match all panel lines

I worked on tail light to match the combo color lenses of the Golf Special edition. I also flocked the inside of tail lights

I also give some detail to front radiator bar: I drilled the blankes holes and repainted in titanium gold the bonnet latch. I’ll add in the future some final PE and bolts.

Many thanks

Incompleted the inlet air system for oil cooler radiator duct. The yellow hose start from the removesd high beam light and link to radiator duct.

To fix the metal mesh i machined the lenses of high beam light. I also add the bixenon bulb on black headlight.

To reach a total dark look I black painted the mesh....i also added the PE screw for beam regulation.

I did some detail work adding some head bolts on Airbox bracker and radiator bracket, at the end i completed the last air hose inlet for airbox.
