Heres the dirty stuff, im rebuilding the roof and windows as one piece against the existing stuff, then i will estract the different bits out of it and stich back onto the original ( if theres anything left of it) that way i get continuity across the whole shape.

Yeah, looks good. Your HDRI image is over powering your paint shader. If you decide to follow a studio lighting tut (like Lion's) you probably won't need to use an HDRI probe.

Nice work.

"Incremental save" should have been told on (under save options)- never mind

Looking good model wise - so work needed on the lighting (cant believe I`m saying that mind you)

Yeah lighting is rubbish at mo..just wanted lots of reflections to get a gist of the surface continuity, well i am experimenting with a quick rebuild as single mesh, then break it apart at the panels.

very, I mean very nice man. You have a clean looking mesh there, that would have been difficult. Im too scared myself to touch a car at the moment. Well done mate, looking good cant wait to see it finished.

Nearly there i think with the rebuilt panels, got a lot of glitch where the door meets the front wheel arch, not too bad from this angle though, but i will go over it tommorrow.
