    I wasn't happy with the fact that the hood I had was for a 74 Charger and it didn't fit at all well also it doesn't have the vents at the rear. So the 72 hood came in for some cutting. The power bulge was cut out and a piece plasticard made to in fill . A piece of brass rod was used for the center peak. then lots of sanding began. There is still one or two pin holes to fill then its off to Jonny fro paint. The DofH pop up head lights have been cut and shaped to fit the original 71 Charger grill. As I found that the missing link bumper is to wide for the body by 2mm. I have a ModelHaus bumper and this is from a promo which is also to wide.  This forced me to cut out the lights/grill from the 71 bumper. I also have to still make or rob the nudge bars from the DofH The rear bumper from Missing link fits like it was meant to be there . There is just a little sanding to do to get the light surround straight as it bows the top of the bumper up. I'm tempted to drill the rear lights and fit in some reverse lights with small pieces of clear

    Thanks Dan/Rich its been a bit stalled just of late. I was having problems finding the colours for the interior . I have been dragging my heals with the PE parts . I just cant bring myself to glue onto the paint. So I'm looking for an alternative to glue for the Charger badges on the side of the rear quarter ?.

    Hi all I will be doing an interior update soon now I have got some green paint close to the correct shades of the 1/1 . There is actually 8 different shades of green for the interior including the rood lining !
