Actually, I wasn't even considering white until I started writing the post and I mentioned it just as opposition to black. But then it got me thinking, well, you know...

Here are two more questions:

1) What do you meake seatbelts of?
You really need to get your hands on a set of aftermarket seatbelts, which are made by various companies. I use www.grandprixmodels.com but you would need someone Stateside (though GPM will ship to the States!)
Anything else won't look very good!

'Bare Metal Foil' (A product!) for a self adhesive chrome (It is like a sticky baking foil, but ultra thin!)

Or Plasti-Kote Brilliant Mettalic Silver spray paint. Nothing else will achieve the same sffect as that paint, trust me! It is superb!!!

Yes, Bare Metal Foil gets my vote! It's pretty easy to use. I also comes in different colors like gold and black. I picked up some in black to use for the trim around windows and undercarriages.

The chrome foil also works really great as the reflector behind taillights/turn signals.

That's a good job. It's pretty much what I built, only I drilled holes in the interior and the cage goes through them... I will try to take pictures one day, but I don't have a didgital camera
