    It only makes sense. Now hopefully they can continue the FR-S as the GT-86 here, and put some more TRD versions out.  Really what Toyota should have done is instead of creating a whole new line and brand, they should have developed TRD more and made it a true in house tuning/performance division. For example, M in BMW, Polestar in Volvo, AMG in Mercedes, F in Lexus, SVT/ST/Shelby with Ford, and what not. TRD should have been something similar imo. I think that is what they will do. They will release that "supra" prototype as the flagship, the FR-S will move over to the toyota brand to be a cheaper alternative.

    Thank Bill for all the insight, I havent purchased the hood or grill yet, waiting on reference pics from my uncle to confirm, so I am okay on that front atm. I have only glanced at it a few times, and from what my memory is telling me its y4 Honey Dew Yellow, with Black stripes and I believe it to have the rallye option wheels from the goldish one in the pic.  Now the door indentations would be beyond my skill level. I will check out missing link! I dont mind spending extra if it makes my life easier! LOL

    Thank You Jeff... Cherish the moments as they say!  Sorry you never got to do something similar, but I know they are looking down proudly on you! I just know it! I am excited to start this build and share it with everyone. I also just purchased an original MPC Dodge Daytona Turbo Z off ebay, and will be doing my other grandmother's car from 1984 I believe. She had a black one, with the red trim. Funny story, as a kid, I used to call her my black grandma to differentiate her from the other, since her car was black. LOL Kids say the darnedest things.

    I literally just found them! I think I will get the hide away grill, and the flat hood for this build! Thanks.

    Thanks everyone! All very helpful information. At the moment I am simply researching and waiting for current photos of the car for reference. My Grandfather still owns the car, and its been in storage most of its life. I hardly ever get to see it because of him living about 1 hour away, besides I never really thought to ask, always busy with being with family. But he is getting older, and I just felt like it would be a cool build to do for him and myself.  This will be quite the project, and will be sometime before I will get anything up on here in the workbench section. But please anyone with any information, tips, or parts would be helpful.

    1972 Dodge Charger?
    So I plan on doing a replica of my Grandfathers 1972 Dodge Charger, I was wanting to know if anyone has attempted to do the hide away headlights? If so, how? Also seeking mopar afficianados in help explaining any differences between the 71 Dirty Donny kit and a 72? I am planning on using this kit as the basis of this project.  I believe the car to be an R/T. Not 100% positive atm. I do know its Honey Dew Y4 yellow, with Black stripes. To Scalefinishes I go!!

    Job well done. It is a shame there is only one kit option for the street car version! This car is a Rally Icon! Great choice of color too btw. Quick question did your build up on the other site mention how you did the springs? I would really like to know how you did that and what size beading wire you used! Thanks for sharing!

    One would only hope because this car has six optional wheels from the factory!
