Assembly started on F10

Usually as soon as all parts are painted and ready for final assembly, process accelerates quite a bit. Looks like I've reached that point with F10. I've clear coated last parts, where decals were placed - camera, brake calipers and wheels, and started final assembly steps. Assembled parts of rear and front suspension, attached oil tank to engine and radiators to monocoque. Simulated heat shielding on the rear of monocoque with Bare-Metal gold foil. More steps to come, but seat belts are a stumbling block at present. Seat belts and steering wheel detailing aren't least favorite tasks. Need to make those happen though, before I could mate all the sub-assemblies with the floor.

Below are photos of current sub-assemblies and quick mock up.
