Nice job on the engine! Who says that you cannot polish a turd???LOL

Like the detail like shift linkage and wire looms!
Gunna add the clutch fork and linkage too?

No I don't think I will go that far as most of it won't be seen. I'll look into it anyway.

Engine done. Now I don't know whether to do some weathering on it or leave it showroom.

It would look great with a light black wash.
Just enough to make it look like it is driven.

Beautiful work with the engine! Though I can understand the appeal of showroom I've always leaned more towards the 'used' look, so there's my opinion, lol.

Interior done. I've scratch built the pedals and the lapbelts, placed down some carpeting, used a bit BMF on the console and hand painted the dashboard.

Thanks Gary. I've put the wheel and the rally-pac cluster on. I wanted to use the Manta 4 steering wheel but it was so bent out of shape and broken that I just put the other one on. A bit of molotow and it shined up real good. I tested the door fit and it seems very good. I had to respray the doors and bonnet/hood as they were a slightly darker shade than the rest of the bodywork. All I need to do now is the door cards and then the interior is done.



The neatness I was chasing is coming together now. I must admit, I lost faith a while back. It was looking very messy under construction and paint. I'm very pleased with the progress now.

Absolutely luv the work! I expected little from this kit, but you really "duded up" a plain Jane Mus-tang. Is the air cleaner from the kit and did you improve it?

Thanks all. The air cleaner top is from the kit and it was all chrome so rather than strip it all off I brushed some primer over it and painted it in matt black and then very, very carefully scraped the paint off the raised lines and name using a new blade and a steady hand just enough to get through the paint but not the chrome. The filter itself was just brown and yellow painting and topped off with some spare mesh decals I had from the LaFerrari job.

The chrome on the dashboard is great. Molotow pen?

The only parts on which I used the pen were the steering wheel, rally-pac cluster and some touch up on the gear shifter. The rest of the detail is just plain old silver paint.
