I'LL third it !!!

Reskinning a car is a large project, but a lot less than building it from scratch.

You have got a nice flowing body design, proportions are good too.

On the Rear wheel well what do you think about a radius from the rocker panel to the well and also a radius at the back of the well also.

just enough to get away from the square look.

Steve

Hello, The rocker was mocked up about a year ago and is trimmed to short for the opening. I will be "fixin" the opening once the real fender geats closer. Ray

Default Visual cues from Cuban GP photos

Ray,
I thought some of these pictures may help you firm up your design. Your car comes across to me as a 50's era Italian road racer. The pictures from the Cuban Grand Prix have some real classic cars from that era. The story about the people involved is great as well!
