That looks stunning JC.

Wheelbrace on the co-driver's floor, too many things to mention without making a list.

Fabulous. Now take the brave pill and paint it! :D

Amazing work as before. Interior looks like you could climb in and start it up.

It didn't dawn on me it was left hand drive before, I thought this was an English car?

You attention to detail is just too cool! Thanks for proving that kit accuracy is up to the builder and not the kit maker!

It was sold as LHD too for our friends in continental Europe, ie outside Britain and Ireland and the few other RHD countries such as Australia and New Zealand for example.

Thanks Jason. The Escort was built in several different countries England, Germany, Ireland, Australia which are not all right hand drive markets. The majority of the Works cars where left hand drive with the exception of cars built for Roger Clark who preferred right hand drive.

JC, what is that white (?) material under the lap portion of the harness belts?

Gene, the lap belts usually include a piece of leather or fabric installed under the main latch to make the belts or comfortable. I used the white fabric in this instance to simulate this.

We have color: Tamiya TS-15. Once the paint is fully cured I can polish it up.

I use polishing pads, Shay. Once I get everything smooth I use just a bit of polish compound.

Thanks Martin. I'll give the paint a week or two to fully cure then I will start polishing. I'll post a full color mockup in the interim once I think the paint can accept handling.

Thanks Tommy. I am going to try and finish it with the side windows down so the interior can be seen better.

Still haven't rubbed out the paint but couldn't wait any longer to see what the wheels looked like against the dark blue paint. It works for me.
