not a whole lot of progress but some. I managed to place comp resin 60's era driver into seat but need to rework the legs. right now they go directly into the pumpkin and if im not mistaken dont they run over the top if the diff axle shafts? The other photo show a dry fit of the motor with the scratch fuel pump in place. I had to open the front cowl just a little more to be able to fit that motor with the pump in there. I also received my wheels from MAS but am sad to say need to go back due to the outer rings that make up the rim had too high of a side wall. Im assured by terry that he will send a new pair. Otherwise just slow and steady. hope to have in primer by the weekend and some white. Also received the right 4 butterfly blower cap for the car so im in the process of running the fuel lines.

Ok im hoping someone can lead me into a direction now. I managed to get the car into primer then base coat gloss white so I could get the decals on. Well thats when things went south. I cut the stripes back as to not have any decaled edges that werent red just due to some discoloration once placed on the pure white body. the problem was when i applied the ramchargers decals to the sides as usual i use a setting solution. Things went down well with no problems. Added some solvaset to the decal and didnt seem to really permeate or soften the decal but i figures i give it some time. I came back 45 min later and around the lettering i had wrinkles that were quite noticable and despite any application of heat or further applications as well as burnishing the decals i could not "iron" them out. Its as if the paint underneath shrunk but really wasnt the paint. Well 2 hrs later and the body was stripped and in primer but have come to a delema that there is no decals aftermarket for this bodystyle. Ive thought of some ideas but really havent been able to come up with something that would work so im asking if anyone has any advise on what to do. Ive been thru the slixx decals but everything seems move oversized for this car.

Ok guys, thought id get you imput on this. After looking all over for anything that would work i came up with a "what if" design. I tried to keep it retro and used a slixx decal sheet from don schumachers plymouth cuda. I figured i keep it mopar and didnt want to have to disassemble the block to repaint it again. let me know what u guys think.Posted Image
