Decided it was time to start this build. Don't know what took so long as I was like a kid in a candy store when this kit came out. It's now been over a year and I haven't touched it yet.

I love the Singer Porsche interiors so plan to attempt to do-up the interior in that style. Picked up a set of clearly scale Singer style seats.

Also found a Porsche Dash from an un-used kit-bash stash. I'll use the right hand drive euro dash to adapt it.

I wanted to use the mounting points from the MKI dash as it mounts to the body instead of the interior tub.

Still a lot of sanding and molding w/putty to do but it actually fits really well.

This is where I'm headed w/the interior. Still deciding on color though.

Personally I think those colors from your ref photo are cool, do them!

I agree. Those colours look fantastic.

Cool project. I have been curious about the new Mk 1 kit. Looks like a nice one. What are your thoughts on it.

Both kits are very well done. (Revell MKI Rabbit I'll build along side the Cabriolet.)  Wheel well space is tight for doing anything other than stock wheels and tires but it will be easy to work around.

What model year is the rabbit?
