this is my first 1:18 mod, i did back in august 2009. this is also the old pictures taken back then. i had it out yesterday and noticed the bonnet has gotten a lot of paint rash now.. if was to work on this Supra again, there would be a lot of stuff i could do better today, as i have learned a lot since then.

here is what i changed:

• engine bay and engine parts painted
• various interior and interior parts painted
• added mesh to bonnet vents
• exhuast tip blacked out
• added a few stickers (Bomex and Stillen)
• license plate frame painted black
• rear spoiler lowered
• the brake disc patterns (slotted and drilled) painted black
• brake calipers readjusted
• wheels shaved and painted silver
• some panel lines marked up with black paint
• side and small front intakes painted black
• headlight projectors painted black
• larger headlight high beam projector

the bonnet gaps because of the mesh i have put on, the bonnet would actually sit flush if i removed it.

Massive improvements especially under the hood. Is that LED under the dash? Did you install it or does it come like that?
