Those are some very nice models you built- I have one question though- what did you use for the headlight covers? I want to use sheet plastic but I want a second opinion- I was thinking about filling the gaps with body filler and smoothing it out too but I'm leaning towards the sheet plastic

I'm asking about the 57 Chevys by the way - the revell black widow kits don't have the correct headlight covers for the NASCAR version

I made headlight covers out of .010 styrene sheet.
