Got a little wing work done. so what if the daytona had an emblem on the wing like the superbirds did? would it have been the famous dodge super bee window decal? i think it would have but maybe with like charger daytona around it. you can also see how bad i am at repairing wings on the superbird. both winged warriors are blue and white other than the roadrunner hood stripe. oh and the wing logo on the bird is paper and tape to hold it on.Posted Image

ordered 2 wired distributors from detail master a can of flat gull gray for the seats and dashes. got a little interior work done on both. red shifter knobs, and the chassis and body from the bird and gtx are now modded to fit together. so dont expect many engine updates for a week or so.Posted Image

well after cutting my finger and tons of chopping with a model railroad saw i got the interior chassis and body of the bird to fit together, just need my bumper and windows to get here. so heres a picture of teh bird and daytona mocked up to show what theyll look like together. blurry but you get the gist i think. though id do black headlight covers on teh daytona to mock the bird.Posted ImagePosted Image

well for the most part they are finished both need a little detailing before underglass, yes i did crack the superbirds from window on accident i felt like i destroyed a classic but its ok for a scrapped together bird. Still waiting on amazon to ship my distributers so i can finish the engines. Yes that is snow in the background welcome to north east ohio.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

engines finally got distributors the wiring on both is yellow and gray and if you notice they are in opposite positions on each side. yes i know i didnt do the full out super detailed distributor but it works for me. superbird got custom made firewall hose. still need to do the radiator hose then i think they will be done.
