      Very informative thread [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      It'd be nice to also add the "Weight" of each model wheel as well.

      I just showed this to my wife....THIS is what a drop top is supposed to look like. It's PERFECT! I'm striving to make her's (Galactic Blue Metallic) pretty similar in stance and attitude.
      Well done sir. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
