'69 Charger Pro Street

Recommended Posts

I finally finished my '69 Dodge Charger Pro Streeter I was working on. After having several Clearcoat problems with the silver base, vinyl top problems, and an upper radiator hose dilemma, it is done. I think the flames came out OK, it's the first time I've shot blue flame. I also custom built some exhaust turndowns out of aluminum tube. Other than that it's a '69 Charger body on a '70 Super Bee Pro Street chassis and interior. Comments or criticism welcome.

Clean and tastefully done, Ron! Blue and silver together are always winners. I like how you brought the rear wheels out to the edges of the fenders, too. Cool flame job, also!

Nice Charger, gotta give it to ya on the paint. I especially like the flames, they look great! :lol: The flames appear to be airbrushed, correct? Wish I could do that. :lol: Show us what else you got. Keep up the good work. :lol:

Thanks a lot, guys! The flames are airbrushed, I tried a few things with them to give them depth. It's candy blue with white, I think I went too dark with the blue. I think the Coronet P/S chassis has the rear end too narrow so I added some aluminum spacers to the axles. I also cut and reshaped the rear wheel openings, as well as flipping the rear four link and front spindles to give it a good stance. Ajulia, silver is a pain, I always use a black undercoat to give it more depth and easier coverage. My problem was with the clear I put over the silver before the flames, first time it was too thin, then I dropped it right after I cleared it (wet paint and dirt don't mix). The flames went on real easy. Thanks for the comments.

fordh8r, here's another flame job I posted a while ago -

NICE flame job if you ask me! Not easy to do on such a small scale. Did you use the Createx Auto Air paints I see in the bkgd?

DR Dubois - I shoot everything with Createx Auto Air. Once you get past the learning curve it's killer stuff. No spray booth required in the house and you can use any clear over it. Tip dry is a problem when you spray those fine details, though. Thanks for the compliments!

Man that charger really looks mean. As mentioned you did an excellent job on the flames. I have a long way to go to attempt that feat. great job.

I don't recall seeing those wide tires under that @ the meeting..... I was too mesmerized by the paint. did you change something?

The vinyl top wasn't painted, glass, BMF and final assembly was all. The tires were under the beast, I think you missed them because I had it sitting in the back disguised as a milder auto. B)

That has got to be one of the sickest Chargers I've ever seen. You did a fantastic job on that car, that's for sure. the flame job really shines against the silver paint. Pat yourself no the back for a great job on a super car! :D
