Using the 2dr conversion from Time Machine Resins.

The 2 dr is on the left, and the 4dr is on the right.

The Testors Charger has the interior as seperate pieces. The resin one has the headliner and side posts molded in.

The bottom of the resin car was a little thick, so instead of filing away from the car, I made the chassis fit the car.

I realized its the orange that is making the haze on the picture so I put the body behind the chassis. Went ahead and painted the chassis Huggar Orange to match the body. upon doing this I used the last of my orange paint... :rolleyes:

Here is the chassis almost complete.

This is one of the coolest builds I've seen in awhile. Very clever idea, sir, and just to show how much I like it, I made you the rear tag. Its a copy of the real General Lee tag, but I made it say "06" instead of "76". Just reduce it to the correct size, and print it out on photo paper.

Clay, just noticed in the pic on the box, that it does have a spoiler. Your right looks better onna 2Dr. than a 4. Also, is that a hole in the top of the right quarter panel? Is that stock? I'm assuming it's for the gas filler door? kinda like the 68/70 Chargers? :D

Yes George, thats where the fuel cap goes. On the stock one its on the side.

Ok guys, I got the interior almost done. I got the kit side panels in while the resin panels are drying. I hope my paint job comes out as nice and smooth as the topo of the dash.

Too bad it will be covered up.

This one is moving right along. I better slow downb or it will sit waiting for paint. Its almost done anyway. All that is needed is to detail the interior, and paint the car itself and aquire General Lee decals.
