    Curved the visor edges around my ruler:

    Hard to get it on straight when it's so curved but hopefully this is ok. Got the mounting holes in for the spotlights too.

    Made some more holes in the sides today:

    So now I've got side/marker lights in:

    And I need to remove the licence plate holder as it needs to go on the bumper. Attacked it with side snips, knife, needle files and sandpaper but it's proving annoyingly belligerent as it's really tricky to get a good angle that won't cause damage elsewhere. Here's progress so far:

    And made a start on the wheel arch/ sill extensions:

    Will need to stop putting off the grill soon...

    Good job getting all the details sorted. That license plate spot does look tricky.

    Thanks both!

    Yes, it'll be slow progress on the back. And yeah, M06=rear wheel drive silliness!!

    I've made a start on the front now. Not feeling very confident with this detailed work yet but the only way to improve is with practice!

    Cut down a couple of Tamiya light lenses for the main beams, I can use the 3d printed lunchbox turn signals for that same job:

    And cut some shapes out of styrene for them to sit in:

    Thanks!

    Yeah, a 1/9 van would also be pretty awesome...

    A bit more detail on the grill:

    I've also made a step behind for the light lenses to sit in, still need to do a bucket for the main beams.

    Found a curved piece of styrene from a dinky interior:

    Makes a good splitter! Attached to the wheel arch extensions, once it's solid I'll round the corners off.

    This is how the front is looking all together now:

    VEry nice body mods, and it looks like the splitter will flows very smoothly once trimmed!
