so when i first started fitting the kit i noticed it needed extending so i didnt have to chop the back of the car off, then had to splice the roof on to the body and try and line it all up.
Then noticed that with the engine cover laid on that there was a gap beteen the rear kit and the lid lip so had to cut and try and create a back end that worked with the mr2 and the kit.

next job was to inlarge the wheel arches then try the back end on.
you can see what i was up against in the side shot.
Bolted on the bonnet and wings and front bumper.
Then i had to flare the front arches to meet the wheels and started blending the front wings to the doors.
i had to extend the engine cover and exstend the sides to meet the engine cover.
so the kit for the first time was all on ruffly.

Carried on blending the car together and assembling the front end, cut out and entended head lights,
set bumper in more so it looked more like the real thing worked the front arches and build frame for front end.
wired up all the front end and bonded on the head light covers.
