Bodywork/Paint Complete!!!

Post by unionjack1940 » Sun Nov 29, 2015 10:13 pm

Hey guys, check out the new life that was put into my ol' bird. Made it as close as possible to just off the lot. Enjoy the video! just a quick walk around. Things I did to fix what the previous owner did to the car.

-Removed the go wing and chin spoilers
-Removed hood pins
-New front bumper
-New paint job (fresh coat of F7)
-Stock exhaust tips as ordered with the original car
-Removed strobe stripe which was not originally installed on the car

charger exhaust tips? I know they had them, but I bought them at Carlisle a few years back from Herb's and they said they were for road runners too.

Charger tips were longer than the R R tips. The people at Herbs aren't very knowledgeable. That is a beautiful car. It looks so good in that light. How does it drive?
