The front bumper and body mount done, some of the support bars are white glued in for the mockup.
The rear bumper,body mount and fuel cell bracket and mounts done.
There is a LOT of finish work to be done on this before it's ready for paint, but will have to wait until the chassis and body mockup is done.

I had to do some real thinking about how to make the interior one piece, and yet removable for painting purposes. I decided to cut the bar into pieces running through the interior, and drill the rods out, and install pins. The interior is removable, and yet it reassembles easy and yet is still strong.

The interior had strips added to the edges of it,to simulate where they overlap and rivet the pieces together.
The deck is ready for paint, and will fit flat when all the pieces are glued together.
Here is a shot from below, to show the "folded over" strips, where the deck pieces are riveted on the real car, and how I'll glue mine together.
