I know i have many models to finish up. But after seeing the many late 60's b-body threads on here, i had to pick up one. I got a 69 GTX. I was going to do it up like my old 68 GTX i had. But couldn't find the correct color locally. So i'm just going to make this a pretty much box stock with a few details extra. It will be a 440 car with no air grabber, and will get the recall wheels with redline tires probably. It will be a med blue met, with a blue int. and no hood stripes..

 

Here is the start of the project. Just one picture though.

Thanks, its a dupli color paint. Don't recall the name, just grabbed it due to I liked the color! Ordered some blue flocking for the carpet, but this will probably be the only picture for this weekend. I should be able to do more to it though the week though.

Looks NICE !!

 

1968 blue was most-likely UU1 ; 1969 would be EB7 or EB5 (I emphasised the "E" because "B5" and "B7" changed *frequently* ; 1971= GB5 / GB7 ; 1976 = MB5 / MB7 ...) .

I can't remember the color code that my 68 was, but I think it was called frost green maybe. I've had a couple of 70 Darts and they where EB7 blue. This blue here is pretty close to it.

Looking around to see what these could of came with and noticed one could get a white stripe instead of red.  So i think i'm going to go different with white instead of the red that came with the kit.

Blurry picture, but trying out the white stripe. Also painted the chassis. Wasn't to for sure how neat Mopar was when spraying the black on the bottom of the car, so i put some over spray onto the underneath  of it.

Did a little more to it. Was nice outside and i enjoyed my real car other then sitting inside. But did work on it some.

 

chrome foiled

started to detail the engine bay. and engine (yes the manifolds are an orange, i tryed to make them look like the paint was burning off of them since thats how factory was) and started on the chassis.

The int i just got everything sitting in it. But think i'm going to get a dull coat to cover the seats.

Good call on the white pinstripe on the rocker panels , Jason !

 

I noticed that you added a power brake setup instead of the kit's non-assist master cylinder ; is that the setup from the Revell-Monogram '68 / '69 Dart ?

 

I like what you did with the exhaust manifolds ; that's spot-on ! Personally , I've always painted the manifolds in Gunze's Burnt Iron  , then "dusted" them at an angle with engine colour .

 

Keep up that great work on your 'X' !
