    Testors has/had in there lacquer paint line a vinyl top base and vinyl top  top cost in black and in white. This is how I have been doing my vinyl tops. My father says it doesn't look right but he still does the old masking tape vinyl tops so, I don't know. I like it.

    Got the vinyl top painted black with Testors 2 step system and have started the bare metal trim.

    Got the body cleared today with Testors Ultra Gloss lacquer. Looks great, sorry didn't get a chance to get a picture. Got the interior sprayed Black today as well.

    Went to Keith Marks Decals and seen that his 68 Charger set has the correct Bengal emblems for this car. Ordered a set and now waiting for them.

    Seen some dirt and a couple spots in the paint that I wasn't happy withso, I grabbed my 2000 grit and wet sanded body and resprayed the 999 Orange. Looks better this time. Now to let it dry a couple days, then some clear. Got the interior sprayed Black today as well.

    1968 Bengal Charger
    I like brightly colored cars so, taking advantage of some great weather here in Maryland, got another paint job under way. Back in 1968 a Cincinnati Dodge dealer commissioned Dodge to build 50 special paint Chargers to commemorate the city getting a football team. Decided to try my hand at replicating one these Chargers known as a "Bengal Charger".
    Order some Orange paint from Scale Finishes and using the main body from Revell 1969 Charger, to have the vinyl top and trim already, and the rest will come from Revell's 1968 Charger kit. Gilled the sude marker lights, primed with Tamiya White Primer and airbrushed the Orange. Need to clear yet and tape and paint the Black vinyl top. Will get some pictures outside when cleared. This thing is so bright. 
    Here's a picture of a real car

    1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible
    Here is something I have been messing with while I have a few minutes down time at work. Didn't like the way Monogram had molded the front end of the Cuda and how it looked once flued to the body. It left a horizontal seem in the fender which is not on the real cars. Putted, sanded the character line in and scribed the panel line where it is on the real car. Looks better I think. The wheel lip didnt align for nothing so I had to build that as well.

    I've got one of these bodies as well, shipped as anectra when I placed an order for 3 other bodies. Don't know why it was shipped but I've had it for years now. Never really thought about building it because of the cargo area. Will be following. Looks great so far

    Thanks guys for the replies.
    I plan on using the flathead with triple dueces that the kit comes with for the engine.
    As far as the tuc n roll inserts, I don't recall which Evergreen StripStyrene it was but it was a large sheet of Metal Siding that I found that looked like it might work. Cut out the stock upholestry and glued in pieces on the trim panels and seat inserts. Not happy with paint coverage in the interior, this kit started as being molded in orange not covering well, even after priming and painting silver.
    This Dark Blue Metallic does have a purple look to in it the light.
