    Steve,
    You sure about the body color firewall?  I know the fender wells and radiator support are black and thought the firewall was as well.
    I'll admit I'm not a GM guru in any way shape or form and most of my non mopar builds are old drag cars which are almost always black engine compartments.
    But I always thought the firewalll was black on GM cars of this era.
     
    EDIT,
    Never mind. Found multiple images online,,,all body color.
    I'll shut up now.

    Thanks , and yes. I bought them long ago to use on a Johan build that never happened.
    For some reason the pictures make them look yellowed ,,but in reality they are not ( or if they are its very very slight)

    Black is correct for this year and model

    Ok , curiosity go the best of me
    Ramchargers Dodge - Hemi with the  wide hemi hood scoop
    Mavericks Dodge - Hemi with the 2 lump max wedge hood scoop
    Color Me Gone Dodge - Max wedge with the 2 lump hood scoop
    Pettys 1964 Plymouth - Hemi - no hood scoop
    The Black 64 Plymouth - is the odd duck. it has a big block wedge with single 4 barrel AND the slant six ( didn't see a hood scoop in the box )

    I think the Color Me Gone and the Maverick kits do.
    I know the Ramchargers is a hemi car. Don't remember about any of the others. I have them all if you need confirmation

    The Dodge Boys , another long stalled project
    Actually got to spend a few minutes at the model bench this week . And again concentrating of finishing some long stalled projects.
    This one is the 1964 Dave Strickler driven Bill Jenkins tuned Hemi Dodge. I had painted this car nearly 2 years ago,,,After multiple issues painting the hood multiple times , I got disgusted and put it away.
    Well that all changed when I found the can I used to paint it * its a duplicolor rattle can . So in the purple pond went the hood and I tried again, with much better results this time around.
    Sprayed the hood, (thankfully it now matches the car ). Dug out some parts box pieces to throw a crossram  hemi 4 spd together . Plan is  work on it the next few weeks to get another one off the bench and in the case. On this one I put some spacers under the leaf springs and  I flipped the front spindles over and I really like the stance much better than the others I had built . , Just noticed I need to change the pedals to  reflect the 4 speed change
     
    Comments more than welcome. And thanks for looking.

  9. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Rags   

    Sure looks a lot like the rags laying on my shop bench at the moment,,,grease stains and all ( I had to build a Mopar transmission for a customer of mine this week )
     
    Edit,
    I saw a picture some time ago  where the builder used this method to make a green tarp over a car. Using a paper towel with a  green tinted glue /water mix. It looked EXACTLY like a tarp , texture and all .
