AMT 1971 Plymouth Duster 340. Go Mango Orange.

I tried to paint the black around the windows and on top of the doors and fenders, but the tape started pulling off the clear. I noticed it around the passenger side door right at the stripe decal as I was trying to get the tape aligned. I decided to carefully remove the rest of the tape and just paint the cowl area black to match the hood. I'm a little bummed, but I still like how it looks. I've had trouble with tape lifting the Model Master clear before, so maybe it's not such a bad thing it's no longer being manufactured. Since I wasn't painting around the trim, I went ahead and foiled the trim today too, and after that I installed the glass. Next up is polishing with Novus #2 and a coat of wax before final assembly. I also haven't heard from Round 2 yet about my missing part claim, so I think I might have to make a "wanted" post for the spoiler pedestal.

Pretty cool reflection in the window, eh? LOL. I didn't really notice that when I first found the pic on Google, but it's a pretty cool effect. I've only seen a couple of Duster's with the 500's, and on one they're a little oversized, like maybe 16 or 17", but it's really a good look.

I plan on using the 500s on a Duster build when I get a chance.... I think they'll make it look mean.....😠😁👍

CM had been spending a lot of time on his '71 Plymouth Duster trying to get it finished for the local weekend car show and was worried he might not get everything done. So he called up his buddies Craig and Flash to give him a hand, and even though they're true to their Ford's and Chevy's, they were more than happy to help their buddy out with his Mopar. Although CM didn't really need to, he decided to bribe them with beer and pizza for their time and efforts. Flash stopped at the donut shop on the way over because beer and pizza just wasn't enough, and Craig brought some extra shop towels because he just isn't happy unless he's spilling something and making a mess.
