WIP Hotwheels Custom Honda Civic 2001 TEIN version

After the long holidays, it's time now back to usual custom.

A friend of mine asked me whether i can built custom Hotwheels 2001 Honda Civic SI in the TEIN version as he had seen my latest custom 06 Civic SI TEIN version. I'm not sure, because the overall casting might not results look really as good as the 2006 version. Anyway, here's the WIP to see whether these version will be much better.

the original paint has been removed

the rear standard wing has been cut off.
a new scratch built rear GT spoiler on the rear , not bad looking.
view from the rear side
now for the lower front skirting, measurement and cutting in process
this how it's look beneath the casting.
thanks for looking, will upload the complete custom soon.

  10. not bad but i would recommend some putty and a steady hand and some creativity. these are some of my old models from back then, http://community.webshots.com/user/walleye182 . Just came upon this site searching for some of my old models since I sold them all back then. Hoping to find some new updated pictures of them or something since digi cams back then sucked ass.
