I have a question about the trim for the front window. is there supposed to be any adhesive used on it? the top piece doesn't want to sit flush. the side pieces are a lil wonky too. all the clips are there.

Definitely have to do something better with the window trim it went flying off on the freeway going over the fox river. Thought it went in the drink, but luckily I went back and found it.

Thanks guys! I don't think it's done yet. It needs a bit of wet sanding and buffing yet to be where I want it. Also the suspension needs to be gone through the drivers side sits a bit lower than the passenger.(either that or I need to eat more salad) I'm thinking maybe d2's if I can still get them. Hate the monster truck look in the front. Want to get it out on the auto x course by next summer but want to build it to make sure it survives. Just been driving it around and enjoying it lately though. In the process of moving so not much is getting done and I'll be homeless by next weekend. Lol.
