This one started in the correct blue over blue, so inside I only had to paint the seat backs, dash, center console, and door panels to the correct black. I also added a car phone from a spare Ecto-1A and used a set of sun visors from my parts box.

I was hoping to preserve the factory-applied paint, but the seams were particularly bad on this one and so I needed to sand down to the raw plastic to get rid of them. Fortunately, Model Master's Ice Blue was a near-perfect match to the original Light blue metallic (it was so good, I was able to use it for touch-ups and blend it into the original 30-year-old color!). The rest of the modifications were my usual C4 upgrades: remove the roof panel, replace the parking lights with a CD case edge, and swap the wheels for a set from Monogram's Corvette kit. This one also got a rear-mounted antenna for the car phone, and a set of screen-accurate license plates.
