ok guys, i know you are all getting used to seeing me do rusty crusty slammed on the ground ratrods and the like, but it has been so long since i have done anything shiney, so i am gonna give it a shot!

im starting with the R/M 69 dodge charger r/t, im adding a ross gibson 426 hemi, and i am gonna scratchbuild this cold air intake for it.....

im also lowering it , not too low though, just enuff to tuck the wheels/tires in nicely. it will be triple black, black interior, vinyl top, and chrysler PX8 will be the paint..........hopefully all goes well with the painting process!

thanks for reading, wish me luck! LOL

cheers

I cut open the trunk lid with the back of a #11 blade and cleaned the edges just a bit. they will have to be thinned out alot.......

i seperated the rear tail light panel and bumper filler into two pieces, and mounted the taillight panel in place, the trunk jamb needs to be even with the top of it.

now its time to make the rest of the jamb.

thanks for looking, so far, so good! LOL

Thanks Bart!

i got the jamb done, well the rain trough anyways.....i have to thin the inner edge of the trunklid now so the gasket will fit. ill make one from half round styrene..

i filled the opening with a solid piece of styrene, then cut out the shape i wanted.

after some filing, sanding, and grinding i got this....

i had to remove the tail light panel from the body after i glued it in because, its almost impossible to get the frame in there if you have the panel in place! bummer :blink::wacko:

more to come, as always thanks for lookin everyone!

cheers

i have these wheels in my stash somewhere........i think, if not ill find something cool, lower the suspension, tub the rear out a little bit. mine will be sitting low, not raised like this one is in the rear. its still a way cool car tho!
