Next step, modifying the interior.
Here the first bit of the roll cage, race seats, fire extinguisher, different shift stick and rubber, Halda Twinmaster and tray.

OK, most decals are on. Now it is time to fit the spotlights. Which looks better, the one with the red cover (like the original car has) or the white Cibie one?

The white certainly adds contrast and more detailed interest. Just a beautiful job.

White. Better contrast with the car.

Okey, I've gone for the red spot lights as the original car has. Also adjusted the grill, front badge and air vent.
