The X-Clinic: Audi Avus quattro touch-up - FINISHED!

A while ago I got myself a Revel Audi Avus quattro concept in all its chromed glory...
Ever since, I thought there was a room for improvements that should'nt be much of a bother. But I know from forehand that every work I think it's "a quick job" always ends up adding more and more elements and taking months unend. Let's hope it's not the case.

This is what it started from:

And this is what I'm looking to get closer to:

Therefore, this is the "to-do list":

- Paint matt black the back end of the wheels in order to highlight the disk brakes;
- Paint aluminium the brake callipers;
- Highlight the perforation of the brake discs;
- Sand down the tyre thread for greater realism;
- Paint aluminium the chassis (after all, the chassis of the original model was all aluminium...);
- Paint the B-pillar of the doors and side windows matt black;
- Ad windows to the doors;
- Paint matt black the side air intakes
- Give depth to the exhaust pipes;
- Repaint matt red the seats and door handles ;
- Carpet the interior and luggage compartment;
- Add fabric 4-point safety harnesses;
- Detail the centre console and gearbox handle (to simulate wood);
- Eliminate mould marks on dashboard and steering wheel (as much as possible);
- Manufacture new coilover-damper assemblies and repaint the suspension arms;
- And all the rest that I find along the way!

It's all taken apart, let's get to work:

This was a model crying out for more detail. It looks great, can't wait to see it finished.

Can you give more info on the door glass?
Thanks for the info. The nearly finished car looks great - the bottom now looks good enough to display on its own!
