Love this. Personally that turquoise on the car would be great on the body!

Got my Aliexpress parts today. Unfortunately the "Yellow" (there were no photos) was just regular aged white/cream. I opted to use the lighter blue instead of the dark blue.

Quick mock-up, the pickup covers need some slight modification to fit the pole pieces. The body is less than ideal, I have a white strat pickguard so I might do a yellow body. Or white body/yellow pickguard.

Done, you were right (might change the order of the colors later)

I just need a white body now.

Let's see it with the red body. In fact, I thought it looked good with the cream guard as well.

The red body isn’t the correct shape and not blobby/opaque enough for this project, but for reference sake here it is

I think off-white body is the ticket personally.

Yeah, I guess you're right.

By the way, those Bullet hardtail strats are really nice.
