Hi guys awhile back I did a 68 Color Me Gone body and wasn't happy with it and I a guy offered me stupid money for the body.When I did the other body I was in such a hurry I forgot to shave off the the front turn signals on the lower valance and make the front spoiler and I put the wrong decal on the front fender that said Rodger Lindamood , I put red instead of black but I found a photo that showed Gold with a black outline ,so I'm starting over . Here is the old body.

The front suspension towers and upper shock bracket are from a Polar Lights Charger , motor plate is a resin on I casted and the motor mount brackets are 90 degree Evergreen strips. The front shocks are modified from a set I got from Scott and mounted with RB Motion hardware
