2006 Charger

Recommended Posts

This one's number 3. Backstory is a poor amateur radio operator needed a used car with a strong electrical system. This one looked like a good deal as an ex-Michigan State cruiser, maybe used by a ranking trooper as it had some nicer features. Colors are are by guess, I couldn't find 2 pictures that agreed.

Michigan State Police cruisers were a blue close to what you have used here.  They have a 100th Anniversary paint scheme that was black with gold graphics.

A bit of a setback, the body for the Charger has gone for a swim in the purple pond. One gigantic goober from my thumb on the door.

This model doesn't like me. I was just finishing the respray of the body and my can of paint splattered all over. Back in the pond. Then when I was at the other end of the house, I heard a crash from the living room. The box containing all the finished bits and pieces had fallen to the floor. Bad news, I found everything but an exhaust tip. Good news, I found the missing mike and a lens belonging to an unknown kit. Is it Tuesday yet?

That's really close to MSP blue in the sunlight...I almost bought a used one (14' Charger), went with an ex- OHSP Charger instead...what blue did you use? Thanks.

I think some models are cursed.  At least it seems that way, if it can go wrong it will.

Last shots for the Charger. I lost the headliner piece. so if it ever turns up, I'll pop the windows out and polish them. Sigh, me and glue.
