     WHICH NOSECONE MAY FIT BEST AND LOOK BETTER. MODIFYED TO FIT A ----DARTTONA?HuhHuhHuh




     First i wanted a daytona nose then set mind on a bird nose  as available on west coast an not a gaint fan of the daytona grill on the leading edge of nose.. also plan to have air intake an lights under the nose to keep upper smooth an clean an hate the look of pop up bug eyed lites. may do lites on top but will bee fixed with drop dOwn lite doors..

    
        bird nose has holes for air intake an lites under nose ,but is a inch longer an may stand tall,or over all bigger than tona nose..

In my mind, it would be worth considering having a local fabricator make you a simple nose out of metal that would fit your car and weld to the fenders.       The Daytona noses are a little less curved in the sides.   But you still have the width of an A-body which I assume is less than a B-body.   If you buy a glass nose, you still have the sunk cost of the part and then more money to modify it to fit.

     BIRD NOSE will bee here in few days if shipping goes good.  as it will bee highly modified to fit my dart ,we went with making it in sections an shipping it in parts,saving  half the ship cost.


          Well been reading up on working with fiberglass an studing an measuring the dart nose..

      No one in town wants to work on it unless i hand over blank check an do not reguire a finish date??  sounds like a rip off in the making,,tooo mee??

        well hopfully few days will have nose parts ?  have screw gun an duck tape ready to hang it on car..DJ Cheesy Cheesy

It was painful cutting the nosecone in sections however necessary since the cone will have to be narrowed anyways. I made a steel center section for dj - no charge - instead of 'glass with steel signal surrounds, that way the lower center will retain correct specs while the corners can be shortened....at least that's one way to tackle it...

It started out as a rusty, green '69 R/T SE.

Now, it's well on it's way to being a Daytona.

A fake Daytona, that is.

Mocking wing an nose cone to 73 dart hardtop . have grill an off an bumper loose making aluminum frame brackets for nose. looks like this dart had a big block before from mods to right inner fender well. it has super stock rear leafs an enlarged rear wheel wells. had afew different sets of bucket seats an auto floor shifters from holes in floor.

   well times to drill more holes an start mounting an fitting wing toy parts. have a running small block an 727 to put in it for now ,,an 2 440,727's to think on putting in . but darts can move pretty good with a built small block an easier fit an work around..   i need to get a digital cam an learn how to post pics..   DJ;;;;;;10 days to b-day got to get busy back latter?HuhHuhHuh cheers popcrn drool5 2thumbs

      Found a 70 charger 500  built 383 with pistol grip 4 speed. running an driving b5 blue,nice inside.

  little faded an few pin holes in pass door.   he said he turned down 10k few years ago but is ready to sell an may sell it for 10k now as he has other toy to play with.

 so already got another dart an f250 tow rig in the last few months.few other bills paid off an now a solid daytona clone car comes up. have to deside to stick with dart project or go broke for this 70 charger 500.  love the pistol grip an buddy seat,bucket combo.

   saw it at a small show an its not addvertised yet,so trying to sell few other toys an raise cash for a daytona clone start..   

        did fall sunday an screwed up back an knee so not sure my body can handle much more of this car building.am sure i need to sell some an keep afew near done toy projects.  DJ dart junkie

Sorry to hear that Dj. I have a 68 shell I may sell cheap. I'm starting to realize that I can't hoard all the cars forever. I may have a problem. I told myself no more mopars. Then literally 2 days later I buy another 69 charger.
