This car has been sitting on my work bench for the longest awaiting completion :giggle

I contemplated the longest about what to do with it as far as painting the interior. I hated the seats and I knew I had to do some painting.

I replaced the seats in it with some seats from a Bburaga Prima.

I painted the interior in an untraditional Metallic Coppertone Pearl and trimmed it in black. I also painted the seat inserts in the MCP. But left the outer trim in silver. The black trimming took forever, approximately four hours. I knew If I messed up the MCP with the black, i would have to start all over again. :badidea

I also painted the wheels in Black Pearl with a polished lip.

The Metallic Coppertone Pearl is a beautiful color :jawdrop

The side windows and the painted interior sure do make a difference on this model. Next may be the tinting of windows all around :tempted
