      @challengergary sent me the stripe kit for side and tail panel with a 360 call out.
      12 more days of quarantine and I can get my ass back in gear and try to be normal.

      Man I like the way the grill turned out. Bumpers getting some bodywork before paint. Test fender for the metal flake treatment getting prepped. Little 360 on the way to a test fire.

            Could you please share rear wheel backspace? Also are the wheels 15×10 or 15x8? I really want to know since I have a dart sport with same rear end. Thanks in advance!

              I can tell you those are not stock ralleye wheels. Just drove out of town for a few weeks but I can dig into it for you when I get home!

                  That was a custom Flake I ordered on line mixed in with DuPont clear over base coat. I’d have to go back and see who made that

                      Now for the detail stuff. Looking for a matching passenger mirror versus just getting all new. Need one rear tail panel emblem.

                        I really liked the black on the hood with the 6 pack scoop!

                                She ought to be a nice motor for someone. Maybe someone looking for a 67 motor for an old Belvedere or Coronet.

                                Duster is wired, lights work, seatbelts in....
