I've liked F8 since 1970. 

 It all depends on your preference.

My bud needs head rest chrome - where did you get it, and is there a equivalent in the US?

Thanks!

Will also paint the drums Red and the Chin spoiler Red.

Everything you said was good up until this point.  That will look gaudy.   Twocents

I seen some cars already have the chin spoiler same color as the wing, I thought would really stick out, looking at the front, but I was pretty sure you could get red colored drums from the factory ? heres a link

Worked on the head rest from my new seats tonight, the old one had been painted over the years Black in color.  Had to get an x-acto knife dig out the old molding took about 1 hour each, but turned out really good.

Actually kinda lied, my wife who is very crafty and makes jewelry actually dug it out, I watched from a distance having a couple of beer, but did help hold the molding down when we glued it in.  Grin

Yes thats why everything is been replaced, trunk floor, bumper brackets, gas tank, trunk extensions, quarter panels everything will be new all and replaced with AMD metal.  everything from the door forward are solid but the ass end is pretty much done for.   Sean from Clark Customs here in Edmonton is doing all the work, he's my "golden goose".  He's a MOPAR nut like the rest of us. Notice the plywood in the back seat, original dodge part very rare. lol

Make sure your back seat windows roll up and down easily right now when it is easy to see what they are doing and if any of the rollers are broken and need replacing

Heres some progress just test fitting the quarter panels and trunk pan, still waiting from classic industries on fuel tank and some other smaller parts.  last pic is an area that has to be addressed.  But Sean says it's an easy fix for him.  He found duct tape in the wheel holding it together.  Whoever did the body last really butchered it.  But this time around it's going to be done right.

Make sure you check tail light fit before paint. Very common for the buckets to welded in wonky.
