This is a resin body I picked up on eBay that also included a Revell 69 Charger as a donor. I'm going with Hemi orange and a black interior. I've started trimming the chassis to fit and going with the Revell interior tub but using the 70 resin seats. I cut out the rear resin seat and also the front fender inter panels. Your comments and recommendations are always welcome.

Some updates from today. Started work on the engine, detailed the wheels and more work on the body the resin body had a couple air bubbles that needed to be fixed. Also checked to see if the hood would close with the Hemi

Spent time working on the interior today and found a better air cleaner in the parts box.
