I then wanted to bulk out the lower door section, so tried a softer rounded look but did not like it, Picture 14.
So went for the squarer chunkier look, Picture 15 was the start of building it up.

I moved the front mudguard to a couple of different connection points to see what I liked the best
and then added 160's from the top of the door to the lower section for a smoother look.

A few days after I thought, oops no wing mirror, so added one five days later to the design.
The car was deflating and felt rather soft but I wanted to see what it looked like.

And I do realise the car has no lights.....shock horror, he he.
