    Great lookin 'camino.

    My grand-dad had a comp orange one, just about like that... (396 hood though instead of the cowl)

    Good lookin early flopper in the background too!

    EDIT:oohhh yeah, +1 for what Mike said, hammer the lid.

    That's the one, the Charger 500.

    Thank you, I couldn't remember what it was called.

    Thanks for the history too... always love knowing the why, when and how behind things.

    Omg, nice looking kit.

    They paint is awesome.

    And the interrior is... wow, the wood and the trim on the door pannels... wow.

    How did you do the wood look on the wheel and the console???


    (*i think*... my memory ain't what it used to be) :
    The charger came with several diff grille and window configs... the window on the daytonas was flush with the rear roof line for aero, the regular config was set back in (even a little more than this kit shows) then they also sold a charger (dont remember the model designation) that had a flush front grille also for nascar advantage (like the torino talladega). Although I think the stock grille with the headlights recessed, looks much better. They were very low production numbers, but they were out there... that may be one reason so many of the companies get the things mixed up, they just dont know which model within the same year they are trying to match (although they should).

    +1 for SLIXX

    Their classic funnycar decals are first rate.

    Good call.

    I've also had good luck with small diamater safety wire. Its bendable, comes in different sizes (to fit your scale) and it can be cut with any old wire snippers (or scissors as long as you dont tell the boss... )

    You can get it at most good auto parts stores.

    Dang, good call... hadn't thought of that.

    Thank you...

    I just started using them after reading about them on here.

    Have worked ok so far, but I did have the black bleed on a tan interrior after aplying clear over it... I might not have let it dry long enough (only like 24 hours).

    Found the silver ones at wally world, they've been working good for wipers and gauges, etc... so far.

    ###### you guys are good;

    The right color on the manifolds, the right color on the motor, the floc work, the speaker grils, even the rb 90 deg filter mount... and the foil work, wow (i never have been able to do that right) in some ways looking on her is inspirational, in others it's depressing LOL

    Great job on the charger.

    (my first car, but mine was green... i still miss that car)
