Yup, you'll get there Kelvin and as you know, those "jobs" could be worse. They just sound like frustrating little jobs to get out the way, the ones you usually leave last to on the "to do list" hahaha, still, you'll get there. The headlight covers are quite a common problem in the Chargers aren't they? Glad to hear the car is finally having it's wiring issues sorted too, an often overlooked job.

40 year old wiring that's been touched by several "professionals" over the years is dodgy (no pun intended). I got a new loom for Lucy form the States when I did mine and back then (2004-2005) it was one of the best reproduction items I had seen and still is throughout the resto, was awesome, like original. Keep us posted on that sexy beast of a machine! Smile



Off to the garage myself for some mock work on Lucy..........
Ps: Let me know if you'd like this thread moved to the Resto section bud, your call, no dramas!

Righto, been bit of a mission, I put a new front end kit in as well but got the BBD over the finish line today, still got to put the interior back in but shot out for a quick cruise a bit earlier on, the LSD seems to be working alright too  Thumbs Up

Also, I'd like to thank a few people, some are members here for their help, advice, parts, procurement, tools and assistance over the last 6 months of getting the old car over the line

Brent R/T dude & Dion cuda340, Brent 605, Rich BB Goon, Brendan 6878, Dunk Uncle Jesse, Paul F , Johnny Fury, Gerard, Stu, Mark A, Nick GL, Nige Scatpak, Mark sixtyf ,Mal T , Paul D, Steve W and the Villians for the support
and my lovely Wife Anita, who was all for the idea of a Big Block 68 Charger, we were fortunate enough to find an R/T , yes it cost more than I thought, yes i'm really going to enjoy driving it

Thank you all, have a cold one on me, much appreciated

A mate came over on Monday night and dropped off this, he just happened to spy it at the Peterson museum last week, the Dodge is striped with silver paint to simulate sratches and dents just as it goes up on the kerb to the gas station,  Nice one

Being a mite partial to B bodies myself I have to say that's one mighty fine looking automobile son, and if that there Bullit car chase happened in the real world, Y'all know which car would really end up on fire.
