I can't really say I'm fond of the wheels, but taste is rather subjective. The rest of your build is clearly as sharp as a tack. Gorgeous paint, and one of the most interesting body/interior color combos I've seen in a good long while. Yeah

That red on top of the gunmetal makes for a rich color, lots of depth to it by the looks of things. Lot of chrome foiling in that interior, eh?

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.

Thanks I appreciate it!

I'm not particularly fond of the wheels either, but I do like them better than the other ones. It's part of a box stock community build project on another form so my choices were limited lol.

Thank ya much!

I was gonna use this as my first attempt at BMF or those Molotow pens, but opted to go with a silver sharpie cuz I was familiar with the outcome...

Bummer! Use White glue for windshields, and you can wash it off. Unless you were gluing something else when you sneezed.
