Worked on the interior adding flocking and now have the seats glued in place. Also worked on the engine adding plug wires.

Worked on getting the body ready for the 2nd coat and did another trial fit to see how it's going to look. While I'm waiting for the Modelhaus bumpers to arrive I'm working on the existing bumper to see what I can do with it to make it fit and add chrome to it. Here's today's progress pictures. Thanks for your comments.

Worked on adding more hoses on the engine and also add a windshield washer hose. Still just test fitting and checking the assembly and fit the exhaust pipes up to the header manifolds. Also sprayed a 2nd coat of Hemi orange in sanding the first coat I had to many areas that I burnt through to the primer.

Nice conversion Dan, Modelhaus makes some great resin bodys dont ya think. I bought one of their 67 impala station wagon bodies a while ago and it was so nicely cast I had a great time building it. I like how your interior turned out and your engine is gonna like great. I also like your choice in body color. The 70 chargers just look good in Hemi orange

Jim thanks for the complement I found this one on eBay the body is a Freeman body with nice detail but it did have some air bubble holes to fill. The front bumper is ruff on the back side causing a poor fit so I ordered new bumpers from Modelhaus and received my notice today that they have shipped.

Michael the Modelhaus parts arrived today and fit like a glove. As always Modelhaus was very quick in sending and top notch quality. I also picked up a new hood to replace my current one that will need to be trimmed as it is a little long. Here's a couple quick pictures.

Worked on polishing the 2nd coat out today have a couple burn through areas that I will be fixing tomorrow. Also worked on the front suspension and was able to get it to sit with all the wheels on touching. Worked on the rear grill and the new hood. Here's some pictures and thanks for your comments.
