Here are a few steps so far. The casting looks good and the inside of the car, window unit, front and rear lights etc. are also in good condition

Good start and it looks like the casting is undamaged too. It is a nice car.

The customer wants the hood to be black. Corgi made this hood out of black plastic. It is not perfect, it is a bith scratched, so I think I shall sand it down and give it a black coat.
