    Hi Mike thanks yes the rims look loads better than just painted . the Missing link bumper is about 2mm to wide for the body. But the rear bumper fits a treat go figure?
    The vents at the rear of the 72 hood needs to have a small bit filled in the middle and it is a lot thinner plastic than the 74 hood. Plus the 74 hood has a different shape at the front edge. Not a major problem I just have to go and see John the painter to match the paint once the bodywork is complete.
    I'm still not sure about the tires they look to big for the front and they hit the front apron so I may have to try to get 1/25th not 1/24.
    I am not sure but the wheels don't line up in the fenders to well like the wheel base is to long. Anyone have any ideas on how to shorten it?

    Just a quick update motor is getting their HT leads and manifolds rusted with powders . The from grill is the original kit one as the one I got from Missing link is to wide . Wheels have had the backs sanded off to open up the holes in the rims and fit the back plates.
    I have just started to cut out the 71 bulged hood this is for two reasons the first is that the hood it has now is from a 74 charger and it does not fit as well as I would like . The second is that the original hood has the vents at the back .
    So I have chopped out the bulge and let in a slightly bent plasticard insert to match the contour of the hood . I will have to come up with some way of adding the peak down the middle
    As always if anyone is interested in this comments welcomed good OR bad

    Richard I have gone through lots of clips on the net of Charger Barn finds that have the vinyl roof and clips of WIP's . Doing freeze frame their are one or two clips that show where the trim clips have rusted streaks. Showing where the holes are.  I believe that their are holes along the lower trim of the B pillar . I think that there may be at least 10 from the rear side window to the tip of the pillar where it meets the trunk. Then it comes forward to the rear glass. So then there would be holes on the inside as well possibly 5 .  I hope this helps I can not be 100% sure if this is correct or not as you said their is not much info to go on.

    Man that is a beauty  Brian could I just say . Please could you remove the flash that is in one of the holes on the front right wheel (AMT's mistake not yours)  . Then it will be perfect really nice looking KW well done I love it
