    Well I finally just ordered my BT Streak I decided it was time to implement a modification on my Alt. Silverstreak. I think it adds something, and will get better when I order the new Silverstreak set from Reprolabels. I painted the wheels Krylon Satin Black.

    Looks good! Now give him a carbon fiber hood to give a little G1 yet modern flavor!

    Great work. And as mentioned before, are you adding a carbon fiber hood. I think it would look great or mabye you're waiting for your reprolabels

    Those rims look great on that car. They are from the Mazda?

    A little effort can sure go a long way! Nice work.
