Diff before & after glass blasting


After painting


25 April 2016
No time of my own this time of the year so sent her away to be gone over closely and the odd bit here & there cleaned up. Here she is back from that exercise.




More soon.

Finally sorted out the MoPar Garage today, moved the Charger out and turned the wagon around giving me some room to get on with the job.

Love the wheel system you have to move the car on, certainly coming along nicely

Cheers guys.

Fitted up the rear bumper mounts which are also part of the towbar mount so I could find my best rear bumper for rechroming.


Used this one as a guide.


And this looks like the straightest one.

Medium Turquoise Metallic as per factory. Yes it's OK but will need rechromed.

One day at a time Adrian.

Bonnet went to panel guy a week ago. It was damaged in a ding by a childhood friend of mine at least 38 years ago, they started repairing it but must have found a replacement bonnet so this sat rust free in dry storage for 35 years and then got given to me. Front section of sub frame will be replaced.
