I got ahold of this kit back in march. Ive been slowly working on it here and there. My grandfather had a black 67 just like this one but with a 383 so I wanted to try and make it as close to his as possible except for the engine. Ill post pics of his real charger soon. I went ahead and dressed up the engine with some krylon red, some aluminium for the heads, intake mani, "cool can", front cover pulleys. Brushed the rad cap, battery, hoses, etc. The body was sprayed with pactra rc lacquer I got from a local hobby shop. The interior which you cannot see at all due to my poor photo taking has brushed aluminum accents on the doors, center console and dash board, gauges and such. I used some gray krylon for the interior color cause it was closest to my grandfathers. Turned out nice. The exhaust pipes and headers are painted stainless steel which you prob cant see while the mufflers and exhaust tips were masked and painted aluminum. I like to think that this car has some nice aluminum heads and a good bottom end... imagination strikes. There are some flaws here and there that you cannot see but I try to ignore them. I hope you enjoi it as much as I did building it. Feel free to ask questions.post-11772-0-86442400-1368761810_thumb.jpost-11772-0-29024800-1368761841_thumb.jpost-11772-0-64348300-1368761891_thumb.jpost-11772-0-76084200-1368761932_thumb.jpost-11772-0-53673400-1368761976_thumb.jpost-11772-0-72231900-1368762033_thumb.jpost-11772-0-39654600-1368762131_thumb.jpost-11772-0-81152100-1368762102_thumb.jpost-11772-0-72231900-1368762033_thumb.jpost-11772-0-53673400-1368761976_thumb.j

I'd really like to get those slicks roughed up looking like they've made some passes. If anyone could help me out with that one i'd appreciate it

Sandpaper.

Also, BMF on the trim, a black wash on the grille. I use either 320 or 400 grit wet/dry paper to sand tire tread.

Even without BMF a black wash on the grille would really set it off. Still a very nice box-stock build.

what is BMF and how do you black wash a grill?

BMF - Bare Metal Foil, a thin self-adhesive foil for simulating effects of chrome trim etc...

Black wash - letting a light coat of black paint seep in between the grilles so as to add "depth"...

Nice Charger, otherwise ;)

Hope I've helped :D

Find a bolt, 2 washers (that are smaller than the tire is tall) and a nut. Mount bolt with tire sandwiched in the middle into a drill and hold the sand paper against it, bam!!! instant sanded tires!

Also as to the black wash, make sure you thin the black paint with thinner so that it flows into the cracks and depressions in the grille. It may take an few coats letting it dry between coats. The paint should be thinned to the consistency of water. Wipe off any excess from the high spots or parts you want left chrome with a clean rag, paper towel or q-tip once it begins to dry a bit.

Later-
