UPDATE 18/02/2020

Trying to find a couple of hours a day to keep going on this build, so some more black paint outs done including the inside of my custom rear bumper
Posted Image
Painted the rear red lights in the bumper with some Tamiya red enamel
Posted Image
Black paint outs on the underside of the engine scoop panel
Posted Image
Tyres fitted to the rims and the lug nuts painted black. Still waiting for the Lambo center cap decals to finish these off
Posted Image
Test fitted the headlights in place and test fitted the front hood. The front hood is a little tight, but I have a dust lump in the middle of the hood, so I will sand back the clear coat on the edges to give me a bit more clearance and re clear this part. But it is looking good with the 6.0 headlights (300zx head lights)
Posted Image
I then added the Lamborghini decals to the sides of the engine scoops as per the real car
Posted Image
I also added the 3rd brake light which is just a 1mm wide red stripe decal cut to length, the plastic insert is sitting in under the diecast part, but I will re clear this diecast part to lock in those decals.
Posted Image
Next was simple, just fitted the chrome mirror backs back into the housings
Posted Image
I then made the center wing flap out of some styrene sheet
Posted Image
Checking fitment
Posted Image
Sprayed with Tamiya flat black and glued to the main wing section
Posted Image
Carbon decal applied. Still waitng for the yellow Lamborghini decal to go on top of the carbon, then I will re clear the entire wing in one piece. I had to clear again as I got quite a bit of dust in the wet clear as I dropped the part onto the floor of the spray booth. Doh
Posted Image
Really coming together now. More to come soon. Cheers

Thanks Mark, only a couple of touch ups required this time.
