Thanks for all kind comments! Right now I'm making 4 bulletshaped, chromes + tunck'n rolled headrests. They'll get some kind of chromed futuristic shaped steel-pin to support them.

I've finally decided on the colour for this one! It'll be light green/turquoise metallic with Pearl White and silver interior. I bought the paint 2 Days ago .... Just waiting for some inspiration to start painting........ Always thought paining was the worst part of a build!

Yeah painting can be the "make or break" part of a build. Sounds cool...

Put some paint on the dash today. The turquoise paint is the same colour that will go on the entire body.

Yeah, I glued that fur fabric to the floor and also to the wall behind the chairs and the package-shelf after the pic had been taken. It may be a bit out of scale but loks spot-on to that late 60's theme I'm going for!

You've taken the bodywork so much further than I did (ignoring the fact you've put a bubbletop on it!).  But i'm glad you kept the chrome on the rear 'guards.  I can't wait to see this in living colour.
