Cool! Looks very, very good. Okay, we need to see MORE pics of that car!!! Nice to hear the Pledge helped you. It's an old modelers trick. And speaking of modeler's tricks, even so-called "chrome" silver paint will never match the sheen of the chrome on these bezels. Closest thing I've found without...

Nope, I don't. Remember, I'm a graphic artist, I think of colors by their NAMES. You're a computer guy, you think of them by their CODE... :lol:

I believe the '71 Plymouths and Dodges share back windows, so my guess would be "yes". Dave, didn't Herlitz tell you in the interview that he had to make a compromize in the design of the backlight area of the '71 RR so they could share the back window with the Chargers?

I've never heard of two types of elastomerics. The only ones I've seen actually LOOK like they have some kind of "applique" to a regular steel bumper, hence the "lip" we're discussing. Hope it's the real deal, if it is, you've scored yourself quite a find!

The factory body-color bumper was actually an elastomeric. It does have a "lip" at the top so it doesn't follow the clean sweeping lines of the car. Lots of guys are painting their steel bumpers, but the true elastomeric bumpers are pretty rare. You'd be surprised at what the factory elastomeric bum...

Factory undercoating was typical for cars sold in the snow belt. There certainly are cars out there that never had it, but EVERY old Mopar I've owned (and this goes back to the 70s) has had factory undercoating.
