Thanks Lurch!

 

The headlight covers are also vacuum formed clear Lexan and even more tedious to cut out than the windshield.  Careful sanding is the trick to making them fit properly.  On this car they are painted silver; I used Tamiya Mica Silver.

Thanks Brandon!

 

It's up on its wheels and leveled.  Paint has been cut & waxed.  The dash and steering wheel/column are installed too.  Wind (and the static it creates) doesn't play well with black paint…

I made a circular punch and cut out a Mylar disc for the rearview mirror face.  The tail lights are plated white metal painted with Tamiya Clear Red.
The windshield fits OK, but there is very little material in contact with the body.  I used RC560 canopy glue to secure it and create a small fillet.

The last details to be added were the chrome decal stripes around the base of the windshield (Scale-Master Decals produced by Warbird) and the two prong knock-offs for the wheels.
