I am not sure what to do with them as they are aluminum. Maybe some detailer..

I think I have the wheels and tires sorted out.

I am happy with the stance. The engine and interior are basically done.

Now I just have to get the paint right and hope the cold weather does not make the job to tough.

Roger....I am really enjoying watching this project come together.  Stance, engine, wheels and tires, all looking really good and love those blue tinted headlamps.

 

I'm going to try to go find some pictures of a '71 Challenger Pro-Stock I partially completed back in the day...(err....that would be sometime in 1971)  and post them here.  I got essentially everything completed but the engine....this was just before the JoHan S&M kit was introduced.  The build was partily inspired by the "Angry Man" Maverick article by Hank Borger in Car Model magazine back then....

OK....found them.  This was built from the MPC 1971 Challenger annual kit....before the JoHan Sox and Martin kit was issued. 

 

Had to strip the interior bare (note the battery on the rear seat riser,,,bet that was legal back then (not!)).  

 

Entire front suspension was scratchbuilt and the rear suspension was mostly from the AMT Ohio George '33 Willys, along with the front and rear wheels. 

 

Scratchbuilt hood scoop.  Note the brushed chrome paint trim. Decals were from the 1970 MPC Challeger annual kit. 

 

Let's see....41 years and counting and still waiting for an engine....

 

Thanks for looking...TIm

Tim

That is really cool! A trip down memory lane.

I am always looking for a 71 Challenger builder off ebay but boy are they rare.

I end up doing conversions or buy resin bodies.

Thanks for sharing!
