    SEM 15243 satin black on this job. Probably will take 10-12 cans of color considering I am dying the headliner and the back seat and the dash. Those 3 alone will eat up some spray cans. 2 cans in right now with what you see in the picture and the passenger side door panel.

    bit of a tip for you...most people put way too much paint on thinking the more paint the less lightly it is to wear off.....infact the more paint the worst it gets, paint in thin coats and only use enough to get coverage....as with any painting prep is everything....good luck

    Yessir, no dye job is perfect there are always those little areas along seams etc... Do have one little trick I have used a few times. Take a sharpie and run along all the seams prior to spraying them.

    Got all the smalls done today. Dash / headliner and door metal sections are all that are left. Will be busy masking the car off to paint them in place later this week. Steering column also all apart and it appears I will be able to make the shifter shaft work as I had planned... I will add more pictures as I get the unit reassembled tomorrow.

    Best part of working on a car for your wife is the ability to use the house for part storage! No guests sleeping over until the duster is back together.

    No app just uploading pictures from my iPhone. Will only allow me to post one picture at a time and I have to screenshot my pictures prior to uploading or they will be sideways / upside down etc...

    Lighting on those door panels is wack, they both match even though it looks like one is more glossy than the other... All the parts except the rear metal sail panels and the over the door arches are Sem satin black. Metal panels are Satin canyon black Rustoleum. The sem paint did not go on the smooth metal pieces very well, but it seems to cover and preserve the texture of the glovebox and dash very well.

    Column, dash, doors and the headliner are done. Ready to do some reassembly, I won't put it all back in until all the exterior metal work is complete

    Dash is back together, cluster and column went together well. Gotta send the fuel gauge back to autometer. Must have a bad led in it...

    You might want to use the forumrunner app--it will allow you to upload multiple pix. As far as the making sure they're facing right side up, if you have a iphone4 or higher, you can rotate/correct the photos after you take them.

    Looks good though!

    I like what you have done, really like the gauge lights, leds you said, I will have to find out more about those lights. Can you control the brightness with your headlight switch, or are either on or off. thanks

    Yes the gauges will dim a little before turning off. Autometer makes a dimmer you can use of you want full range. I will post a couple pictures of full bright / dim next time I swing by to see the car. It's currently at the bodyshop.

    Looks good

    Total side note here, but I would strongly suggest knocking another hole in those valve covers so you can run a proper PCV system

    You run a dual pcv? I planned on just the one like what's on it from the factory.

    One PCV valve installed in one of the valve covers and a breather installed on the other one

    I believe that is how Ma Mopar did it?

      That's what's in the Mopar boxes, twist lock breathers. Just have the fill cap in there for now, won't be going on the car till I get the airgap intake cleaned up and ready
