Yep deffo a problem I removed a binned the rear bumper bar for another kit so nothing to support the rear of the kit. I could not get it to sit right so I bonded just the front on the top of the window screen. Once it was set I came up with this for the rear end

What’s the thoughts on body colour ?

Probably the same for the hard and soft top versions is that the rear aluminium bumper support beam has to removed and put on upside down. That allows the grp infill panel to sit correctly. Chris happened to mention it in passing when collected my kit. Also keep hold of the boot hinges on the convertible as the kit makes use of them unlike other models before !

If I built a hard top version the Aston Martin Illusive Blue would look just fantastic.
