Ira those to represent "fangs"?

I don't think so.

Cut It Out!

I decided to cut out the recessed section of the old Tailigate area. I used the Cut Off Wheel and an 1/16" Drill bit for the cutting.

Next I filled the opening below the Tailigate area with a strip of plastic.

Then I cut off the excess and sanded the area smooth.

Grill!

I am sanding the edges of some plastic strip to make the rear Grill Bars.

I cut the Horizontal Bar first and glued it in with Zap-A-Gap.

Here are the Vertical Bars in place.

The new crossed bars remind me of the front grille design of several of the current Chrysler products.

I was imagining the "Charger" SRT myself, you?

More Lights!

I removed the chrome from the grill and glued it in place. Then I measured for the locations of holes for new High-Power Lights.

I started the holes with an X-Acto Knife then I opened them up with a Reamer.

This is a really cool build. How about a sat dish or other kinda of antenae on the roof. And maybe the Italeri crane behind the cab???

be Well

Gator

Thanks for the Suggestion Gator!

Antennas would be Great. I'm thinking about putting Solar Panels on the Roof too... B)

Thrusters!

I am adding Thruster Engines to the Dodger. These are from the little MPC X-Wing Fighter. I used the Circle Template to draw the Hole Lines.

I started the Holes with an X-Acto Knife and opened up the Holes with the Reamer.

Recessed Lights!

I cut some sheet plastic to fit behind the Headlights and the 2 New Lights. Instead of using the stock Headlight Housings I'm going to attach the Headlights to the New Plastic Backing. This will recess the Headlights about 3/16".

I also backed the Holes for the Thrusters the same way.
