Hello John.
Looking really good although for me personally, too many decals all over the interior.
However, it does add colour and give different things to look at so keep it all going.
One day, I'll catch up with my build.BigGrin

All looking good John.
Just wondering though - is the dash vent too close to the front edge of the dash?
Google images make it look much nearer the screen.
Could well be I'm wrong though as there were lots of variants in these cars.

you may well be 100% correct roy matt black but this was the only flat area that the dashboard vent could be mounted evenly all round without any surfaces or edges being uneven or lifting
It required 2 part liquid adhesive + rapid set chemical based hardener to get it to bond to milled out area that was done by a dremell
Acid etched primer was applied so it could accept enamel paint
Then painted in humbrol satin black enamel
