    If you are not following the build thread here is the first time in the sun for the Dart in a while. Just got the slotted mags on today. Now I just need the /6 to come home from the machine shop! Interior will be done next week.

        I like the black on the top of the dash, cool idea.

          It is actually dark turquoise that I color sanded and shot with Matte Clear. I like the look. It was basically the factory scheme.

            Very nice looking. I especially love the dash. Everything looks clean and new like it was 1963 again.

              Original was W1 White (I think no fender tag but that is what I found hidden in places that had never been touched during the bodywork stage). The interior is the original colors. Exterior L1 Dark Turquoise was a option in '63 so this is a car that could have been ordered like this. The interior will be turquoise and white which was not available but we wanted a bit of contrast.

                Incredible work and attention to detail, as always. Love the 63-64 Darts.
