I never knew where those round foam washers went from the paint gasket kit... until now. Tnx  2thumbs
That green looks REAL nice! Sometimes I wish I had picked a color, maybe when I wing it.

Been a while since I've updated, after installing stripe and bumper, I installed the exhaust system I bought off eBay. It was a reproduction system and fit pretty good, the left tail pipe give me a little problems, but I got it in. I installed repro exhaust tips from eBay seller stripeclassics (nice tips) and I bought some new tip hangers from member Back in Black (thanks for the deal!). Here is a pic of the rear of the car with exhaust/tips installed. Also note in the pic the license plate, in Alabama now you can run year of manufacture plates, a friend found this 69 Alabama tag.


I also undercoated the rear wheel wells and installed the wheel lip mouldings....


Installed turn signal delete plates....


Installed hood pad, core and cowl seals...


BIG MOMENT, got the grille installed. The pic in my signature was taken not long after paint, just the grill held in with a couple of bolts. Its now fully installed with all the headlamp parts and hardware....



Scored a very nice used antenna on eBay for 32 bucks....


Fender pentastar....


Had a friend that owed me a favor (put a waterpump and brakes on his van) So he bought me some 3M adhesive and come over to give me a hand installing the vinyl top. The hardest part was the upper-inner corners of the sail panel, after a little cussing it was all good....





....then onto the headliner, I cleaned up and reused the original sunvisors, after a little elbow grease they turned out like new...




With the help of my lovely assistant (wife....thanks Alesha!) we installed the backglass and trim....


Then a couple of days later (again with wife's assistance) we install the front windshield....


Here is how the Charger looks right now, I polished up all my original trim, it was in good shape to be original but there is a piece or two I may replace later on down the road. About all that is left bodywise is buy the front bumper, install it and the front valance. Buy rocker moulding clips (have new repro rocker mouldings), and buy/install side marker lenses. Other than the headliner, I got to buy and install most of the interior.

Looks real nice Jason!!! 2thumbs I have to say,I'm not really a big fan of color changes to one that was not offered in that year,but that does look really,really good.
 On another note,noticed in your pic with the windshield in that your defroster vents are'nt in,are you going to be able to get them in now with the windshield that close right above them?Huh??I've never done them that way,always put them in before the windshield went in.

Thanks Jackson!
About the '69 plate, another thing pretty cool to me is.... On Alabama plates the first digits indicate what county the tag is issued, my plate begins with a 41, that's Lauderdale County, which is the county I live in. All my (newer tags) on my other vehicles start with 41 also.

It's a tight fit, but they will go in with the windshield in.

In another thread I mentioned I sold the "73 to finally finish this 69 I have been working on and off on for years.

I ordered a lot of stuff (I'm sure I missed a thing or two) here's what I have ordered and from whom....


CLASSIC INDUSTRIES
-Seat/Trunk Divider
-Grant Steering Wheel Adapter
-Package Tray
-Bucket Seat Foam
-Seat Belts (Aftermarket)
-Trunk Mat
-Glove Box Liner
-Interior Rear Glass Trim

SUMMIT
-Grant Walnut Tuff Wheel
-Mopar Performance Air Cleaner
-Ignition Coil
-Chrome Lug Nuts (20)

521RESTORATIONS
-Front Bumper

INDIVIDUAL ORDERS OFF OF EBAY
-Carpet
-Door Panels
-ABS Plastic Seat Backs
-Door Jamb Windlace
-Rocker Moulding Clips
-15x7, ION625 Wheels (4)
-Decals Hood Indentions
-Front E-brake Cable
-Misc. Hardware From Fastener Store

Well, stuff has started showing up, today my wheels came in. They are ION 625, 15x7, I really liked these wheels, sort of has a Magnum look to them, but look more current. I went to the local tire shop, and had 235/60-15 BFG's mounted on them. Had to throw a pair on and snap some pics. Totally changes the 'attitude' of the car.

Installed the decals on the hood scallops...



Took a new pic of the engine with new air cleaner. I bought the MP to match my valve covers...
