    He does look good.
    I like the paint scheme you've got going on (black always looks better it seems!)
    But.. It would have looked even better if the decals on the side were sanded off a little so they don't show through the paint. Having that mold for myself I know under the headlights it's red. That being said with the headlights just painted black it looks like it's missing something.
    But the nice things since it IS painted black you could always turn around and add some paint on it relatively easily.

    other than that the paint looks nice and smooth, looks pretty darn good (just get rid of those decals underneath, as it disrupts the smootheness of your paint job!)

    Keep up the good work!
