Added lights for interior and exterior.
Open sunroof isn't Box Art but I really like the look.
I'll upload some outdoor shots and movie once edited.
It's about 95% done - with one major error if anyone can guess...

Thanks guys. But all credit for that driver and dash go to this Ebayer: alchemistgifts2015. Just trying to level up the rest of the car to match his detail work.

Nice work! I suppose the rear tires are mounted the way they are to match boxart? I really like the look of the (HotShot?) netting in the rear windows but I think the way you created an interior by painting these lines on the inside is really just brilliant. And very well executed.

Rear lights are painted in wrong order? Doesn't matter though?

@Taffer Rear light bezels are actually upside down lol.
I got so focused on setting up the lights and detailing the clear lenses, I glued them in the wrong way.
But at this point, I think I'm just going to leave them as is.
