    very nice! Excellent choice of color and application. Really like the details, very well done. I like this!


    Just to help out, All 1967 chevelle Super sports had chrome trim around the wheel opening and on the rocker panel. Its the only way they came. If you were to order a Malibu in that year it did not have chrome trim around the wheel opening or on the rocker panel. It had a chrome strip low down the side of the car along the door line. Hope this helps.

    Thank you all for the great comments! Just out of curiosity I went back and looked to see when I started this project......1-17-2009...........???......Are you kidding me!!. Man I'm slow.




    Harry, I did consider putting a small square hole in the filler panel to give the idea of a latch, but never did it. Just got lazy I guess! Thinking about it I should have done pins.


    Again, Thanks for the kind words!

    1969 Charger 500 Pro Street
    Just finished this build in the W.I.P section. Started this build with the mpc 1969 charger 500 kit. My goal was to use as much of the kit as possible, Add big meats in the back and little's in the front, a few aftermarket parts for the engine and some scratch building. Nothing fancy under the car but I took a picture anyway....................

    Engines in the car, radiator is installed and the grill is ready to put on. One of the last things I did was make a filler panel to go between the rad support and grill to fill the void. I think it helped finish the engine bay..............







    The grill was put on and i made a upper rad hose and put it in place...........





    Well, This is my last post on this build. I think it's finished!! Oh Snap, That darn rear bumper fell off as I was showing the car to my wife before I was going to take some pictures! I hate that! Have already put the bumper back on and will take pictures before the rest of it falls apart.


    Thanks to everyone who followed along during this build and appreciate all the great comments!

    Niko, That's exactly the area I'm having a problem with. I did get the bumper on the best I could by taking a little off the bottom. It needs to be rotated down but you can't do that because of the bumper guards. Looks terrible from the side, no so bad from the rear. I'm not going to try and do anything else to fix the issue as I feel lucky I was even able to get it on the car anyway!

    Thanks fred for offering your assistance

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Engine waiting to go into car................









    So now I'm working on getting the rear bumper installed. And it won't go in. Gave up last night and not sure what it's going to take to get it in there! Never thought about pre fitting the rear bumper!


    Thanks for looking and more to come..........

    Been making some headway trying to get this wrapped up, And its close. So here's what got done. Cleaned up the windows and installed them to the body. The tail lamp lenses were fit and put in place along with the gas cap on top of the rear quarter. The body is all finished and ready for final assembly. The interior tub is done and also ready for final assembly.

    So that leaves the engine. It still needed a fuel pump, fuel lines finished, throttle cable done. The Radiator got paint but still needed a cooling fan. I just about gave up hope finding one in all my parts kits. Finally found just what I was looking for in a old amt corvette zr-1 kit. It has two fans and I only need one, so the radiator was cut in half and I filed the part until all that was left is the fan......



    IMO this is one of the best looking cooling fans i'v found in any kit. It just takes some work to get to it.

    A funny car parts kit gave up its fuel pump for use on this engine. The pump was cut into three pieces and put back together making a smaller pump. Holes were drilled for lines a small bung added.......





    The pump was painted and lines added...........



    Then made up the 2 fittings to go on the hoses to hookup to the fuel pump. When I started the fuel lines I had enough fittings to do all of them the same but ruined 2 of them trying to drill them out.



    For the throttle cable I used a piece of pop can to make the mount, left over red plug wire for the cable and a very small strand of wire to make the spring......

    Very well done! The paint is interesting as is the turbos in the rear quarters! I like your outside of the box thinking.
