Had the car since december.. stuck in a garage.
Image

Had many plans for it, however because of my 2gn accident... poor car got pushed aside.

Image
hood was crap... so I painted it.
Image

Image
Roof was crap... so I sanded and painted that too.
Image

Image
shaded a 'new' set of tails.
Image

Image
got the exhaust waiting... if I can find bolts to get the cat convert. back on.

Image
needs to be painted the same shade of NYG eventually.

Looking good Trinity, alot farther than I would have been with it. If you go to the Dodge dealer, they'll have a layout of the bolt's that you'll need if you ask for them. You can get a whole parts list if you want.

Shoulda done a NYG lip though! And where did you get that spray tint?

Not at all the direction that I would've gone with the car, other than maybe the temporary black hood and roof, but I'm glad to see some progress being made on the car!

Are you going to try your hand at bodywork on the left rear quarter/trunk?

Nice exhaust system. Had it on my old 97 that I sold. Sounds/performs great and installs easily :)

No they don't. A black vinyl top was an option, but never a flat black painted roof.

Your point?

That's a Dart, and the whole car is black.


I'm not being a dick, I'm just saying that no 'Cudas came from the factory with a flat black painted roof, like she stated.

The closest thing I have seen was a Duster at the Mopar Nationals that was special ordered with a gloss black painted roof, I believe it was a Plum Crazy car. That's not a 'Cuda, and that's not flat black.

Again, a black vinyl top was optional on most/all Mopars in the late '60's through at least the mid '70's, but not a painted flat black roof.


I may be younger, but I know my Mopars.
