    thnx guys and gene .. yes ...hmm but like said i figured with the beefy leaf springs , shocks it would be more of a extra .. i have an idea , cant get the pins out glued with superglue , but if i would use the right ball point penn filling wich is hollow , and the right thickness .. cut it open in length i could push it over the steel rods and glue in place , the cut seem at the bottom you might not see that ..
    will get back to that

    cool idea .. what about making the whole front clip removable / one piece , so hood and wings one piece so it looks like a poly body ??

    made some brackets on the rear axle .. and a side support between the chassis , put 2 bars between those ..
     
    now i kind of winged it on this .. old style ladderbars didnt fit the set up really ... maybe the bars are a bot thin .. i tried thick bars but that made it kind of too beefy ..
    so i hope it kind of makes sense ? now the leaf springs are from the charger kit .. those are quite large and beefy .. fitted best with what i had .. then i have added 2 shocks so i figured the bars could be thinnen and more like extra bracing to keep it in line ?

    thnx dave , well i discovered a small gap on the a pillars .. you have to look in a angle but .. but i think if i put some plastic on the inside of the a pillars it will fit perfect .. and well i will have to make this work

    whell that went bad quick ..
    i made a plate against the glass to glue on the inside of the roof, managed to avoid glue marks only one small thing on the top edge and since i wanted it perfect i made a window banner from the decal that gos on the rear end  .. at that point i wanted to spray clear over it but the plate i made broke off ...

    after a few attempts i gave up and cut a new window out of a nother window , didnt want to use that earlyer because the material was superthin .. managed to cut it to size without breaking .
    then when sanding the edges it broke anyway ....
     
    last option was a window i had from a chevy ss .. now that was something i got for free , very incomplete but i have the body , hood , bumpers and glass .. so i wanted to make something out of that in the future ...
    but now i had to use the glass from that .. now scary it fitted like it was made for the charger .. even the side windows ... again scary .. it was a poor cast .. glass was clear but lots of flash on the edges ..
     
    after a good clean up it came out nice , side windows sit perfect .. now the thickness is a bit hmmmm .. but i'm going to make a window pillar from brass so that will hide the fact the side glass looks thick

    thnx dann !
     
    cleaned up the front its pretty smooth now



    windows ......
    i just cut a rear window out of a ferrari rear window , keeping those vent like things .. i think it  looks cool

    did some final shaping on the edges on the front window , this one is cut out of  bmw windscreen

    now downside is ...i have a tiny edge on both the front and back window for gluing it in place ... and this after primer and paint , so not sure how i'm going to get the glass in and keep it looking crisp ....hmmmmmm
