      Hey Joe, I'm so glad to see you found another project to tackle. I loved reading the Pinky thread and I can't wait to see you dive into this one too! As always, you've got your hands full, but I know it will turn out looking awesome in the end. Have fun and post lots of pics! Subscribed!!!!

      i am thinking of keeping the dash black,(where it normally has thAt woodgrain look)

      if you look at pic 11 and 12, i melted the plastic, and lifted the lenses out as heated, so that when i reinstall lenses, i have to just remelt the plastic righ back, like factory

      What is the original color of the body? The fender tag is Purple but I don't see any Purple on the body any place not even under the rear package tray. Trunk floor and tubs look like they are blue and the under the trunk jamb drip rails look gold? Swinger emblems on the front fenders are 71 in 70 they are on the quarters. Just asking not looking for a pissing contest and I see there is a 71 rear bumper in the trailer.

      like stated. this car has been been welded together out of like 3 or 4 parts cars. the roof is off a 71, the fulle floor,tubs hump over rear is all from a 72, half of cowl is from a 71 demon.................the list goes on. this car was rotted to death. if it was mine, i would of parted it. . guy i bought from bought it in 77 or 78, and gave up on it after a body guy charged him 17k in just metal work on the car. however, in my opinion, in all the work done, i can see where it all went!

      ok, started to restore the orig. grille, but decided that it was in too good of shape for a nice looking driver, so i fixed all cracks without having to touch it with any repainting!. also did the rally dash glove box door trim, dash frame
