Toyota Altezza [Streetstyle Battle Build]
Still going strong...

The muffler is prepared as well.

Stock or Modified? - I think I will go with the modified grill.

I used almost half a tube of shoegoo and plenty of glassfibre tape to strengthen the soft Lexan of the bodyshell. - I think this way it will hold up quite a while on the track. ;)

The light kit is installed in the buckets as well already. - I think the next step is to finally put everything together. :D

Everything came together like a charm. It is still missing a few bits and details as well as a few decals. - I really had to control myself, not to pull of the protective foil completely off yet, but maybe I can prevent some of the scratches on the body, I normally have before the first ride already. ^^

"It´s all about the details" - I installed the windscreen wipers and washing nozzles. ^^

I´m pretty much done, just waiting for some rims with suitable offset to arrive, then I can fit the body to the chassis, take some final photos and go for a first ride. :D

I still added an intercooler ...

... and some seats, so the dashboard does not look all that lost in the interior.

The panel lines are done already. - Still have to take some photos though. -  I used a Parma detailing pen, which works pretty good. It has a nice thin tip and good covering with just one stroke on lexan. - Whenever I went wrong I simply wiped it off with Tamiya bodycleaner and tried again. - A bit of a downside is, that is slightly shiny, but I tried it with matte tape first and that is indeed very tricky to make it follow the form of the body without coming loose.

Looking very nice
It´s done, here are some "studio" shots I took today. - Thanks to everyone, that followed the build. ;)
