More on the foams will follow in a separate post , and now to the Wraith inner fenders.

The inner fenders come in a huge bag in 4 separate pieces , the moulding isn’t of tamiya quality but its ok . the lexan is nice and thick. I had to do some extra trimming for Eloys droop kit.20131111-fenderedstars3

There is plenty of material in the original design so more trimming is in order , i cut one side and Mojca did the other one and the holes for the droop kit. Hers was better.

The fenders were painted with PS-5 Black then followed up with a bit of PS-55 flat clear. This was done for two purposes , first i did not want the black to stand out that much and second it was test of how PS-55 works, which will be used in a future project .

The mounting is quite solid especially on the back where it notches into the the rear , wish they did that in the front too. I was afraid it would interfere with Eloys front battery plate , but i can attest that it does not .

Overall its a nice upgrade . it adds to the looks and keeps crap out of the front under hood area. The closing of the rear area allows me to start finishing the electronics placement in the back.
