Once again, thank you. I've managed to wrangle the bodywork onto the chassis. It took a lot of stretching to fit and there was a lot of alarming cracking and pinging noises coming from the wheel arches and glass. When I finally got it over the sides it snapped shut tight knocking the front fog light off deep inside somewhere. I managed to rattle them out and now I have to figure a way to get them to fit from the outside as there is no way that body is coming off again.
Here's a sneak preview of the back lights.

Back lights look great. I like the paint protecting glove you use.

Damn, that looks good. I like the paint glove too. I'm paranoid about getting glue from my fingers onto
a finished paint job.

Thanks guys, I try to keep the fingerprints and dust to a minimum while working on my models.
A little more progress, the exhausts are fitted and the front fogs are sorted now.
Also, this new benchlight I've recently bought is brilliant.

Beautiful detailing and weathering effects! The saga of fitting the body sounded scary, glad to hear it went ok.
