Hopefully racing the X-5 review car on sunday if i get the electrics sorted in time otherwise its the XX4.
heres the shell and custom X5 / XFactory stickers, the wing (not pictured obviously) has bigger Xfactory and X5 stickers.

I did the shell quite quickly, nothing too fancy, but the stickers (all mine) make it look quite buggyish.

The windows are my own design as the kit ones let the shell down I think, I quite like this shell now.

Yeah you can really tell you’ve rushed this one Jimmy :|

You know you’re doing a fine job of making me feel artistically challenged?

haha, cheers mate, it was a rush job alright, what else can it be at 2am !?! :) then stickering it up whilst watching the latest LOST episode :)

I think the windows are the best bit, they follow the shell shape now unlike the kit ones. the lump is a bit unsightly but i quite like the rest of the shell now.

The paint job makes the shell look pretty nice to be honest nice job, btw was that ep 16 of lost ;) watched it last night in HD.

Nice colours Jim, good drop shadow, and that bump makes it awkward as heck to get a symmetrical scheme.....

You running the Tekin this weekend?
