thanks for the tip bro, I decided to try to retrofit some yokomo light buckets first and go from there. Still slowly doing the little details here and there when I get the extra time. Debating on cutting the hood vents as I'm not really thrilled to how the fake looking BOV and the decal looks. Also gonna try to see if Tamiya TS-50 or 51 matches the metallic blue better. Tamiya Ts-19 metallic blue is lighter and the silver flakes doesn't match as great to the PS paint.

That's what I'm loving about this build. Being nice, clean and simple is the way I like 'em. Keep up the good work

alright solved my front headlight solution, but I think I have it down to 2 light buckets to pick from for the rears. Still waiting on wrap up light films and tamiya polycarb cleaner so I can remove the paint on the bumper lights. Forgot to mask it and realized eventually after I painted it. Here's the update on the front. May massage the front light buckets later on when I get the materials to make it fit better. I already did some slight modding for the sides corners to come out and fit better.

ah ok, I got both the intercooler and oil cooler together at r2hobbies. They don't come with mounting hardware though so you may have to get creative. HPI and tamiya makes ones also and come with mounting hardware. I used double sided tape to tape on my HPI mounting hardware where I used the HPI intercooler before.
