Default First Car Body Done, Used a dremel for all cutting.

Okay here it is. My first car body for my CEN. Heck I have only had the car for a week and the body that came with it just didn't do it for me so I picked this one up to see how I would do. Comments or tips welcome positive and negative. I have a thick skin. (now it's open to all the flamers). Later

well.. i cut out by bodies with a bodie scissor and then dremmel any rough edges.. but i've noticed that with a minor slip.. you can easily screw up the plastic.. specially around the wheel wells.. so i now ordered a circle cutter for that reason... i like the body. have one myself. but in yellow...

A circle cutter sounds like a good idea. I just rough cut the wheel wells with a round cutter then slowely ground it down with a cylindar sander.
