I added the firewall, seat with some interior parts and the fuel cell. It's almost to the point where I start the roll cage and interior. I plan on using the driver figure, I have some images of Kurt and his fire suit to help with the painting.---John

I added the last part, glued the figure together and test fit it in the seat. The fit is excellent. It looks like I need to sand and paint "Kurt" then finish the roll cage. It'll be a while before I can update.---John

I found a bottle of Model Master Sublime Green from many years ago and it

seems to match the Monster Green on Kurt's fire suit. Any ideas what color

the harnesses are?---John

As done as it gets. I left the harness black with silver buckles. You'll never

see it anyways buried in that black seat.---John

You nailed the color. The real car has more of a satin finish like you did then a flat one.
