I've never modified a factory Mini-Z body & was wondering if when you file an area, does it show white underneath or is the plastic the same color throughout? The "splashguards" on the back of my R32 aren't quite true to the wheel well & drag on my slightly oversized tires a tad.

Most autoscale bodies are colored plastic, not white. Some are colored what the majority of the car is, then painted on top. You should have no problem shaving the wheelwell a little for clearance. Just taper it from the inside of the body rather than the outside...

Thanks again. :)
