last pics by now... I'm tired... two night shoots, very dark to show how the reflective stripe looks Cheesy

BTW and before you say something. Trunk lid emblems ( Charger and Dodge words ) were installed on that way from factory here in Venezuela... I know in USA was Dodge and Charger below it.

Tomorrow will post some extra pics.

to dodgeitaly and Chargercroatia... we can meet on some european Mopar meet in a future... I'll move to Spain, I hope to spring season.

What kind of paint... just acrylic and also acrylic clear coat ( 480 Dupont ) it needs a light sandpaper again and new polish job, but nothing bad. About parts... Maybe have been hard to find some specific stuff that maybe people sometimes forgett on a rebuilt job untill you notice. Yes have been a little harder than you have guys because you are up there and I'm down here. Even that, the NOS tail light lenses, wheel opening molds and several more NOS stuff I was able to find it here. I had and still have the advantage that I'm I think the FIRST ONE in Venezuela trying to rebuilt a Charger. I made contact with all Mopar Dealers here in Caracas, I have been on all his shops and in fact entered on its deposits Wink.

BTW here is some that I'm wishing/needing:
http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,1509.0.html

I'm trying to get the best optioned car as possible. Only would rest variable speed wiper windshield system, cruise control and all depends the Radio I find and some parts, double rear speaker with the deffog installed and Cassette player.

The car has been also new wired, with an used but PERFECT 74 Uderdash wiring rallye harness. I removed from this wiring the interlock system untill I get it complete to attach it again. The car is wired actually like a 72 without any kid of seatbelt or interlock system.
I also made all the underhood wiring with some donor parts car, but checking wire by wire using original colors.

I have save a lot of money doing by myself everything except recover the seats and body and paint job even I helped.

The plastic interior panels Have been painted. The white ones I got weren't ready to install, some dicolorated and they are also chalky on some parts. In fact three panels are black painted white.

Bumpers have been rechromed, same as mirrors, but passenger side was damaged so that's the reason I'm looking for another mirror, already found it but still up there.

Bumper fillers, have been painted, some replaced for better used ones that My car had.

Passenger side grill was bought on ebay, mine was broken. Headlamps fillers were also used from up there and painted.

The real reason I went white is becasue with white interior and top is the best combo possible even I really wanted the original one, red/yellow reflective. About the nightshot, I also could choose any color reflective: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, even BLACK reflective, and would look the same reflective effect but IMHO, white is the best choose with B9 on body... I don't like black stripe with that kind of blue.

Thanks buddies for all your words.

Cool pics!   I love the side stripe and it is pretty neat they came with a factory power antennae.

I'll try and look next weekend through my "junk" boxes and see if I might have some of the little wanted things you had listed.     icon_smile_cool
