I had a spare CGT and decided to do something with it.

I blacked out the rims with black paint and laid a sheet of carbon fibre across the front hood. Simple but effective mods.

I will eventually lower it and I'm thinking of constructing a targa top for it. If I create the targa top, I will also make side windows and tint them as well.

That looks like 1:10 scale R/C cf sheet. If you got a hold of some 1:18 carbon sheet, it might look very sweet.
The rest of the car looks awesome. Nice and mean... :cheers

Darrick - you've done an incredible job with the rims. The black inside really allows the lip of the rim to punch out. :nicejob :nicejob :nicejob

Darrick... Painting those rims have made them look a lot bigger than they really are!! I like that effect a lot.... Same goes for me... the finer the pattern of the CF will make it look a whole lot better

Great mod byt the way!!

I've been trying to print out some smaller carbon fibre decals, but its almost next to impossible to do with my printer.

The texture is so fine with the carbon fibre, that its hard to replicate.

I'll see what I can come up with still.

I just had an idea for the carbon

A lot of plane kits have carbon in them... sometimes its just sheets that you put over the wings etc when putting it together... maybe check them out

Thanks, I'll check them out. I was looking at some kit cars, but nothing, never thought to look at planes. :cheers
