Looking good, just thought I'd throw some information in about interior, you currently have it all White, For the most part all white interior Mopars generally have black dash boards, steering columns, windshield trim, kick panels and carpet (sometimes arm rests too).

 

Here's a picture of a '68 III With White Interior (and split bench) I apologia for the quality, I don't hoard pics of Slab C bodies, only Fuselage C body Fury's :lol:

While my car is a Fusey and a convertible, I figured the pictures may be useful anyway. Had to dig back to when my interior wasn't wrapped and squirreled away :blink:

Thought I had more.....hmm I'll have to remedy that this spring.

Dan,
 
I am really enjoying this one, as I have an original, un-built JoHan Convertible, and a F&F Resin 2-Door Hardtop, that I bought a long time ago, which is quite nice. I plan to add the fender skirts, and scratch build the split bench front seat, as no 1968 Fury III had buckets and a console. One will be an automatic on the column, and the other will be a 4-speed, both being 440 cars. The color combos have not been decided upon yet.
 
Your build is looking pretty good so far.

A Fury convertible was my first kit ever. Could it have been 40+ years?

Nick thanks for the pictures your correct about the white interiors I already had plans to go with the black carpet, dashboard and rear deck lid.

Thanks Carl

John back then I was just starting to build and I was into the AMT and MPC kits not knowing what I was missing out on with the JoHan's.

I decided to change out the wheels and use these hub caps that came with the 68 Fury convertible I think with the color they will go better. What do you think?

Looks good so far.  The wheel covers compliment the color nicely.

Thanks for the continued comments. Here are some more progress pictures I detailed the front grill added the side trim stripe and clear coat. Marked the lines for for the vinyl top seams that I will start on next when the clear coat drys.

Thanks for the comments Carl and Charlie, here are my weekend updates. I was able to get the BMF on for the vinyl top and installed the vinyl top.

THAT is pretty.

 

The bronze-copper and white work beautifully together. Very good color choices.

Beautiful job. Nice color combo too. It's great to see a build of something different once in a while.

Later-
