preparing  all the body , before painting , the trim aluminium have been reduce , they don't go until the rear bumper anymore , all line of the back seat cover have been improved and will be filled with a black kind of foam to give a more realistic impression , a reduce the size of the rear light as only one spare tires will be put on , it was going a bit out of proportion so I cut , drill a hole for a screw and fix the headlight on it , with a  small black rubber rim between the 2 part ( and it look not so bad ) . on the fender , the impression next to the rear wheel was not looking nice . the line was not in harmony and loosing the curvy surrounding the wheels ( that cover the wheels) hard to explain ahahah , so I fill the gap with putty  , as you can see , also fill the hole as I remove the supposed little light on the front fender , the original from the kit not giving visual satisfaction . sometimes nothing is better , and there is enough light ( 3 in front ) and 2 next to the doors ..

used some clothes hanger to create a kind of metallic frame to give some volume behind the seat .. still working on it ... and on the other side , started to work on the display case ... stain the kind of composite wood I had to give an impression of legitimate wood ... color is dark walnut with a gloss polycrylic water base for the finish , that doesn t become yellow over the year . I order a mirror that will be under to show the  details .

replace the original exhaust pipe from the Pocher kit who are not very nice by metallic straw founded in DAYSO .. Cheap , the exact same size and looking way better .  

finish my spoon  testing paint .. this blue will be the one, a pearl blue .. and the rims are done with the Mercedes logo  .. this project is getting closer to the end . next step is the real deal with the paint of all the part ...
