    Thanks for the clarification it's all starting to make sense now.

    Thanks guys for the quick responses,Soooooo in summation ,the argent silver only on the SE ? black only on T/A ? some RTs with black otherwise body color . I assume the base models would be body color? I did do the usual searches but I couldn't make the correlation between the colors/options because it seems that there is always an exception to the rule or just incorrect restos. I found several informative pages that covered almost everything I need.

    What color for a 70 challenger tailpanel ?
    I've seen the tail panel (the area between the trunk lid and the tail light) on 70 challengers in body color ,Black(organisol?) and that silver color . Is there a rhyme or reason to it ? I cant tell if it has something to do with trim package ,stripe choice , color choice or just random choice of the buyer. Also if you have suggestions for the silver and black color in hobby paint because I don't have one in the driveway so it's hard to tell what they look like in the real world.

    There's a guy that sells upgrades and plastic for these. You do have to use a certain kind of plastic . Sorry I don't have the specifics .
  11. randx0 added a post in a topic how do you find specific aftermarket stuff?   

    I've always liked that about this forum ask a specific question and you get an answer almost immediately .This thread was more for suggestions other than the usual google ,forum options . I like that we have suggestions on how to better use google and links with other options . I guess I know there are more than a few foreign (to me ) companies that have great products (Aber is one that has some interesting and useful P.E. sets ) but are hard to find because I dont know where to look .

    how do you find specific aftermarket stuff?
    There are so many aftermarket options available to us . I keep a watch out for new and interesting P.E. sets and resin items ,however if I wasn't building or planning a build for some of these items it may not stay in the old memory banks . so how do you go about finding specific items for a build ? a google search doesn't even bring up stuff I know is out there ,the company sites are frequently out of date and the smaller upstart or newer companies are just unknown so how would I find those guys . I only know of some of this stuff because of this board like the corrected 69 mustang nose from a russian company that does mostly airplane stuff . there are too many forums to keep up on all of it so how can you hunt down stuff that you don't even know is out there .
