Using part of the model chassis to support the front clip is a nice idea, and for your first full interior, it's pretty clean.

Thanks man. I tried other ways to mount the the frnt support, but this one turned out to be the strongest and easiest.

The interior is one of my favorite parts of the car.

Update:

I painted some of the chassis parts gold and black. I will have pics up after they dry.

You should get a can of ultra flat black and spray everything that shows through the windows...it will really bring up the scale realism.

I was toying with that idea. I still haven't decided what I am going to do.

If i do paint everything blk, i will use the gold parts on another car.

IMO, the painted gold GT-R rims looks much better than those flipped mustang rims.

I agree, They just aren't Subie Rims. They would look good on another car though.

Put the gold wheels back on yesterday. I kept the same width as these though. So now the tires are even with the fenders.

different bearings. I used some truck bearings I had left over. they r wider than the car bearings, so it pushed the wheel out farther.

wait the metal bearings? If there the metal ones there is only 2 types. The evo/street and the gen.1. the evo/street are for both the cars and trucks.
Are you sure? I could be wrong.

They are the same. Hence the reason why RS sold bearings with the white background packaging as opposed to blue for Evo touring and yellow for the trucks. You might have a wide bearing and not a regular one.

I'm planning on getting a few Subaru legacy bodies and making one into a rally car.

Little update on the car: made a new push bar. It's gunmetal grey instead of the bronze one. Planning on adding some lights to it. Also made roof racks and another bar for the top that will have lights on it as well.

Looks good with all of the interior in it.
