Hi guys, any idea how do you mod the headlights and rearlights as seen in the pics? they look so real.

Would appreciate any advise.

I dont think that's an actual r/c shell. I think it's from a model or radio shack type of car. I've never seen one with that much detail before.

Your welcome, I think it's an easy job to do!

And it is a Lexan RC body, just like everything else.
I've seen bodies with whole dashboards, rollcages and fake motors in it.
By some you could even open a door and remove the hood!
There are some real artitsts on this planet, you would be stunned if you would see one of those!
