Finally wrapping this one up!
Painted the chassi. I used Testors Window Tint spray to do a quick discoloration of the exhaust system.
The cockpit is mounted to the chassis.
I've been trying off and on to do the lettering on the back of the car. I shopped around and picked up so many dry transfer letter sheets but couldn't find ones I liked or that were close enough to the artwork I drew up for the car. I ended up getting a set of decals printed by Bedlam Creations. The decals were high quality and went on without a fuss. I would definately recommend them for anyone needing custom decals.
Just waiting for the clear on the body to gas out a couple days and the two big pieces will be going together!

Great model. Those old notchback Montes were great racecars, they're still using them in some classes at the local tracks. Keep up the good work!

Your mold making process on the hood pins is pure genius, great save on an old classic as well.

Well done! Those kits weren`t the pinnacle of detail back then , but you`ve done a great job of making one into something cool. The memories you have of initially building it with your dad are priceless. I wish I still had the models I built with my dad as a kid.
