This project is looking sick! That widebody is coming out great, your sanding skills contain a lot of patience.

When do you go back to school? I get to go back September 1st for the first time in three years.

Finished the prototype/ practice intercooler:




My intercooler vs. the Mustang BK intercooler:




Mustang BK's intercooler size comparison to the tC.




My intercooler size comparison. (It's a bit big for now, I'm going to size it down later)

Nice. Although seems way off scale...
How is it going to be positioned on the final mounting?

Later, T.I.M

Don't really know XD

I'll probably just go with the flow and figure it out when it needs to be placed in.

looks really cool so far.

my 2 cents for the positioning of the intercooler:
i think you do a blade or something below your bumper, so you can put it on there and use the back for the clipholder...

by the way, why do you build the intercooler like that?
i would have prefer an "import-tuner-style"

Nice looking project so far, coming along very nicely! I started school really late this year, started september 9th, latest I've ever started in my life(cause of when labor day was) but still keep up the good work! That intercooler you made looks very nice, but kinda large.

I built it like that because that's how the tutorial did it >.< I can always change it around later when I build another intercooler.



Hokay, a rare update:

Got the left side resanded, reputtied and now symmetrical to the other side.




The rear has been shaved down (again) and reputtied:




Filled in the holes on the rear widebody. Don't really wanna built the holes since it'll take too much work >.<






And now some forward motion again! Building the front bumper (didn't do much though >.<

Rough outline of the front bumper:



















They're nearly symmetrical. Just a lil' more sanding.



And as a random bonus, it's Hammond in a Bugatti.

I'll probably work too slow to get it done by the December comp XD

I'm going for a white color, and the wheels are probably just going to be the ones on it now, only modified for widebody.
