ok you know i can't tell you how much it costs me:lol: as for time
i started at 10am took a break at 12pm went back to work at 1pm stopped at 4:30pm so i guess about 16 1/2 hours total most of the time was actually building the clear piece cause if you look behind the skins it's not a single piece. if i didn't have to draw all the characters and figure out where the numbers go it would have taken less time

Original... Yes. Practical... No. But that's not the point is it? Keep making your car original, because otherwise what would the point be?

Kudos:clap: for a nice job and a definitely original style.
