Tamiya Ligier JS9 Matra CS

HI!... I just picked up this Ligier JS9 Matra CS from a fellow collector. It's in really good shape. It needs to be restored but just barely. It's missing one side mirror, and the driver needs to be painted the proper colours. I also need to install electronics.
O.k I got some electronics installed and a vintage hump back Tamiya battery. I found out that both front steering rods were incorrect. I found two of the proper ones in my shop. Also the steering rod from the steering servo to the servo saver was incorrect. Fixed that too. The MSC rod end was also incorrect. Found that the throttle servo mounting plate was upside down as well. Also the rear wing mounting tabs had not been painted per manual so I took care of that as well. Currently I'm painting the driver's head. It was the wrong colour. I still need to find a P/S mirror and get a vintage receiver.
Well I finally got around to painting the driver's head the proper colours. Now I just need to get a right hand side mirror and the vintage helmet decals.
