I think you'd still drive it though

I would correct all the shortcomings. Its almost there, and none of this rework its hard to do.  To me its a shame to have such beautiful body work (I've seen Leons work) and cut corners on the assembly/finish stuff.  Twocents Twocents

I'll admit that the seats have to go.  Whoever did the embroidery should have at least kept the R/T in the traditional factory font.  I'd probably go ahead and put the Dodge lettering across the back since he put them on the front as well.  The 69/70 shifter looks out of place.

A pet peeve of mine has always been seeing caster camber access plate being painted body color in engine compartment when it should be semi-gloss black. When I looked at this cars engine compartment yesterday I see they are body color. Shocked brickwall icon_smile_angry flame I say to owner, No way did I paint those body color. He sez, No I did hose myself. I told him they are suppose to be black not body color. He said he did not care. Now if somebody knows I Restored it & see that makes me like bad like I did it. Sabotage brickwall  (Not the first time I've been sabotaged) I told him I'd help him anyway I can when he orders new parts or wants to know what goes where ect. LEON.

This goes back to what I said before.  He obviously spent a lot of money to get the paint and body perfect. Now he claims he "doesn't care"?  shruggy

Well, if he doesn't care then why have Leon do the work? brickwall  There's lots of other so-called "resto shops" out there for less money/less quality....which is the kind of job suitable to the choices he's made with regard to build quality... Twocents Twocents

Hey Leon - - you're inbox is full.

He did say everbody that looks at it compliments how nice the paint & bodywork is & gaps & fit ect. Back of hood needs adjustment though. Gaps will pass the ball bearing test. LEON.
