Thanks Steve!  Please feel free to ask any questions about anything I do that you may be unsure of.  I'll try to explain it better to you.

I added the white tail stripe to the '68 Charger.  I removed the side markers, added the stripe and reinstalled the side markers.  I need to cleanup around the side marker with some decal setting solution.  The stripe looks pretty straight to me.

I needed to add another coat of Tamiya TS-54 Light Metallic Blue to the hood, front and rear valance panels to match the body, but I had run out of paint.  A trip to the local hobby shop got me another can of paint.  The body has been touched up in prep for clearcoating with Tamiya TS-13 Gloss Clear.

The body, interior and chassis are now one piece!  I inserted the dome light, windows, and interior rear view mirror and joined them all together.  I am getting to the point that I just want this one off the bench!

Nice. I am just starting one myself. Am doing a street version with the 440.

Lots of good information here. John

I have finished my '68 Charger R/T and it is posted in Under Glass.  I would like to thank all those who have viewed and commented on my WIP for the last 5 years.

Talk about a blast from the past! 

Your detail work is excellent! I really your solution to the marker light issue.

Great looking model and well worth the wait.
