Default Salvage hacked 57 vette body for wasteland bomber rat build

I guess this build in over 30 years in the making, a buddy boght this body and hacked it but good, decades back he gave me his RC junk rather than pay me back on loans.

while the black paint was for lexan i believe the silver was testor enamel and he made a mess with it then tried to clean i assume the silver off the windows with a solvent that hazed up the clear, ( all on inside ).

Still its an old cool body i want to use on a old school build,
I will sand out his shoddy trimming job but for paint all i can come up with is sand the outside of the body with very fine and airbrush it a flat black repaint from the outside with patina and paint trim i want to pop but what to do about the windows?
Im thinking just hit them from the inside with silver again,
Im wanting a rat rod bomber wasteland type idea so not at all perfect finish but this car a vette so it wouldnt have rusted damage but rather busted and repaired fiberglass,

So here it is open to ideas just dont say toss it in the trash bin.lol.

hi the 13 bats if the body is lexan and painted on inside try rc nitro fuel on a rag on back inside of body ,this may work , i have taken off paint completely from a rc lexan body and rewashed it with DAWN liquid dish detergent and warm water the silver testors paint may come off also with light rubbing with a wet cloth with rc nitro fuel do this out side in large pan and warm weather too , careful with some chemicals as not to melt the body ok mugey
