That looks really good. Glad to see you finished it.

The only thing that's bugging me is the fit of the front bumper under the drivers headlight.... Is it a non genuine bar?
It would also look really good with the black/red Berlina pinstriping (if the door moulds were to go back on)

The VN SS foglights would be a nice touch as well.
