Did you paint the interior and chassis red as ONE complete unit or did you paint and put it together in pieces? Looks awesome. I am watching you.... :)
Thank you...the chassis I build and then paint, t works out much easier. There can be a massive gap on the firewall to floor joint which requires a lot of work.

The body is all covered in 2K now and shining like a diamond. A few specks of dust got into it which is a pain as I usually are lucky enough that i avoid that, so a little polishing lies ahead but nothing major.

Thank you all for the replies.....
I got tired of body work on this one, I have been spraying other bodies getting ready for the colder months ahead for us here in the Southern Hemisphere.
So i have done some work on the engine, looking to do some plumbing so want to be able to take the air-cleaner off and show off the carby etc. The threaded rod will be cut down and i have a small nut to lock it all down if i want.

Great updates. I grew up building these kits, this gives me some inspiration to finally start my Irvan 97 Michigan winner.
