Thanks guys.

 

Here are the door panels as they came on the model. Everything in the interior was in that ugly gray plastic. also the steering wheel cluster was a little modified. The paddles were thinned and slightly reshaped.

The headliner got a little destroyed, because it was riveted to the roof, so I had to rebuilt it in the middle.

Here is what the dash looked like just after been painted black

The interior all done.

Wow amazing work. Never would've thought that simply painting the dash black made it look so much better. And bravo on those seats.

Great stuff for sure, decal work in that small area is one of my downfalls; so kudos to you. Good stuff!

Thanks for all the great comments guys. 

The brakes were shot yellow and some Ferrari photoetched emblems were applied.

All the ugly, sloppy moulded plastic grilles were replaced with photoetched ones too.

Amazing model. What an amazing transformation.

Thank you for the kind words. 

It is a 1:18 Hot Wheels car.

The photoetch came from a guy in Germany. He does post on e-bay under Tremonia
