Welcome- Looks like a decent starting point- and pretty straight- I am personally not a big fan of body color engine bay- but its clean and straight-I imagine that was a good deal of work just to carry stripes into there.
Is there a story to the alien copilot?

There was but I forgot the whole story. I have promised to show finished product to the original owner so I will ask him for sure !

Looks good. I have to get a better look at the underside of that hood though.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

Only if you want to. It wonít make a big performance difference if you do. Mostly just looks cool.
