The plan is to fully strip the interior of all white and then evaluate what can be saved and what must be painted. There is one area below the rear window that'll need to be painted for sure. Then preservation and clearcoating can be decided. Here are two photos of what is going on, just above and outboard of the right side of the rear window. First, thin the paint coat carefully with Scotchbrite disc, then remove white enamel with acetone and rags and then bring back the shine with rubbing compound/paint cleaner. Thankfully the painter didn't scuff the interior grey before he sprayed on his thick coat of white--the original grey has few flaws after polishing!

For protection, do you consider 2K epoxy primer?

Thank you, friends!

Very nice weather this morning so I thought to work on Ingrid for a little while. Here is the paint stripping procedure on the ashtray door. As you see, a prior owner repainted the car from Jupiter grey to white. Luckily for me he didn't sand the interior metal that was resprayed so I disassembled the ashtray and used a high-speed tool with a soft Scotchbrite pad to thin the white. Then I removed all the remaining white with acetone and a soft rag. This part takes a lot of time and patience but leaves the grey intact if you're careful. Then a bit of wax and reassembly, and a Jupiter grey ashtray appears!

Yes, but Monogram was using raised panel lines during that era.......still I enjoy building them!

Good progress.

Your Hasegawa plastic parts are definitely beautiful. I've only built a couple of the old Monogram kits but they were nice for the time they were first issued, not of the quality that your kit, though.
