Found the motivation to pick this up again, and it only took a year! rofl
So, instead of spending a bunch of time looking for just the right parts, I went ahead and sculpted what I needed. The hood scoop, the missing side scoop, metal plates, and the louvers (although I made them more like armor plates than actual louvers). Used craft mesh for the wire cage. Also beefed up the front spoiler area. Again, I should have started with a 70/71 Mach 1 Mustang, to make the car beefier and get the grill/stop lights right, but now I know better at least.
Some pics, I'll get better ones later, the flash washed out a lot of the drybrushing.
Knarf: What product do you use for dry brushing?
It's just a normal brush and paint, the technique is more important than the materials. When drybrushing, make sure the previous coat of paint is cured enough to withstand more drybrushing, otherwise you'll just tear up the previous layer and make a mess. [Folk Art] Silver Metallic, [Testors Acrylic] Steel, [Folk Art Multipurpose] Steel Grey for the interior, etc. I really like the Multipurpose Folk Art paint, it paints well and is more durable than the normal line that's kinda chalky and weak.
For a basecoat on the hood, I used VHT Vinyl Dye Spray (Black), it's awesome. Just make sure to sand the surface so the dye can penetrate.

It's Apoxie Sculpt, takes a few hours to harden, great if you need time to work the area.
The crash bar is assembled, now I just have to sculpt a little and round a few corners.

Started on the little bits, glued to toothpicks, the usual. Again, sorry for the bad pics, I miss my DSLR

A slightly better shot of the dash, also finished the seat, let me know if something seems off. There's silver trim, like on the gauge bezels, it's just hard to see because of the lighting.
