That's looking well now Tricky
That model really needs the bumpers to complete the look.

It will draw many admirers at Stoneleigh

It is looking great, I've always loved the restrained styling of this model. How do you do the chroming? The bumpers look like fibreglass. Do you somehow have these chromed? or get metal copies made? Or cast in bronze or aluminium or...?? Always wondered and would like to make bumpers and other chrome bits for my one-off designed car too.

Im guessing you will be easy to spot as you will have a big smile on your face.
Has it got the bumpers on?

Is that a custom windscreen I see? It doesn't look like the Z3 original.

The screen has a chrome scuttle moulding and chrome finishing strips to give that illusion.

Wow! You've developed this quick - very impressive, looks spot on.

Really interested to see the chrome in real life - was the grille surround done the same way as the bumpers?
