Tim, when I was building mine I did the same thing and collected as many pictures as I could find.  I also took a trip to see the car in person at the WB studios.  I got special permission to go behind the ropes and take pictures.  So I took as many as I possible could of every little detail.  Also someone posted some high res shot taken in Dallas, and Canada.  I have around 1150 pictures collected.

Now about the faset on the driverside.  Think it depends on how you look at it.  Here are 2 pictures that I took.  The first it looks like there is no angle but inthe second picture you can see it clearly.

Thanks Jack, much appreciated...

From the footprint in the picture you can start to see how they climbed up into the stunt vehicles.

Hopefully I'll get some more time on Sunday morning to make some more progress.

I'm trying to make it as screen acurate as possible, but as I'm sure you know.. you make one little adjustment on one panel/angle and it throws everything off

So I'm doing my best within reason.  I'm going to try and make some more adjustments to the one side to get it the way I want and then work more on the drivers side.

I'm trying not to rush things.  Everyone who has done any fabrication in the past knows that you are always your own worst critic and will see all the things that others don't.  So it is always important to be happy with it yourself before moving on.  You always regret the comprimises you make in the begining.

P.S.  Do you have any close up shots from behind the panel that comes down from below the gas fillers.  I can't tell from any of the detailed photos that I have seen on if the panel goes right back to the body or not

It's an wiring connector and it's cap.  We call the Cannon Plugs in the AF.  The 89 had one on the driver side too.  What it was used for on the Tumbler I have no idea but would guess it was a quick and simple way to connect something to it externally.  Maybe a remote device, computer, electronics, ect.

I was able to get a bit more work done on the detail and angles.  This meant pretty much pulling everything apart and then putting it back together again.  I was trying to figure out why I wasn't able to get the angles that I wanted on the front body panels.

Then I realized that the panel that holds the gas filler caps wasn't flat enough.  So I corrected that problem and made some more trims/adjustments and now the angles are much more of what I am looking for.

I also started to run some beads of bulldog grip adhesive between the joints to make sure they stay where I want them to.

After getting the passenger side adjusted the way that I wanted, I was able to start on the drivers side front panel.  I also made the proper adjustments to the gas filler cap panel on the drivers side as well.  Basically I'm trying to get one side the way I like and then exactly replicate it on the other.

Thing you have to know is that the body work on each of the 5 cars were slightly different. One of the cars did not have that tri-angle plate on at all. and the placement of the outside shocks on the front fenders were different on a couple of the cars(can't remember no.'s off the top of my head). I liked the look of having the outside shocks in parallel to one another, but on another copy of their car the shocks were cockeyed to each other.

  On one car the air diverters that sit on top of the lower air intakes were put on in reverse from a couple of the other cars. and the two upper air intakes that sit underneath the two uppmost air foils on each side were placed slightly different from car to car. Actually a whole bunch small differences. And the 1/3 scale used on the rooftop scenes is radically different. Like some of the subtle variations in the 89' cars, only more so.

   I took my cues mostly, but not entirely from the car that ended up at the toronto mall. of the 5 cars, that car seemed to be put together more symetrically. Yet another difference is that there are a bunch of hex-head non-button head bolts towards the bottom of each side of the car directly below the side windows(near the bottom of the car), But some of the cars didn't have them at all. I choose to put the bolts on. The 1/35 scale bandi kit has them on. Not sure about the hot toys.
