AMT 73 Mustang Road Racer

Hi all, I'm new to building car models, I have primarily focused on railroad modeling, today at the hobby shop instead of buying a rolling stock kit I decided to give a car kit a try.

Well I opened the box and I'm seeing a LOT of "extra" parts, I guess it's to allow some customization ability to the kit?

Also its undecorated so I have to paint everything first right?

Any help would be great.

Yes, the extra parts are for customizing it to your taste. 

Yes, you have to paint most everything.  Since you are just beginning, I'd search this site for modeling basics.  I wash all of the kits parts in soapy water to remove oils from the injection molding process.  Let it dry completely and use a quality gray primer before I lay any color down. 

Hope this helps.
