Thanks man, really appreciate it.Looking good dude.
I had the same thing with the 3m vinyl I used especially on the smaller radius curves. Adding that extra relief with a 45 degree chamfer (or rounder) definitely helped but I still ended up with a couple of small imperfections.
Keep up the great work
Haha too late now, but you're probably right about the junkyard. A quick online search for the part number didn't yield any results so I took the quick way out. Probably for the better since I would have had to redo it in acrylic and find different paint. So right decision for the wrong reasons I guess! It was a good learning experience and I'm pretty sure I can nail it next time.On the BMW handle, those things are maybe $10 bucks at a junkyard. Can you just get one there? That would be a good budget option.
Contact me one day when you have time. I want to see this in personGot the trunk floor panel carpeted today. To mimic the stock panel that lifts up (to reveal laughable storage space) I sewed two pieces of carpet together to sandwich the panels. The match looks poor in the photos but it's actually really close in person. I may experiment on a scrap piece to see if I can dye it closer.
With this, I'm calling the fabrication on this car done! Overall I'd say I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I definitely learned a few things that will help out for the next build I do, whenever that is.
I'll probably play with the tune a bit with the intention of just learning more. After quite a bit of listening I have a feeling it's going to be hard to improve on Nick's tune that's in there now, though.
