Here's some updated pics. I'm pretty much finished for now, got a few odds-n-ends to do (wiper blades, dome lens, fix a trans leak), but should have it ready to hit the road when spring hits. Just hope its some inspiration to some of you guys starting or mid-way through a project. I did everything myself (my wife lent a hand when I needed it), took me a few years and was on a budget. It's not OEM correct or 100% perfect, but I'm pretty proud of my first ground up project.

Beautiful Car and great job with restoring it!  we're on the same path, so it's nice to see yours from beginning to end (knowing there is really never an "end" to these projects).   cheers 2thumbs 
Look forward to the Spring time pictures and hearing your next step! 

Cheers

Thanks for the props, guys! On the seat covers....budget constraints. I got the whole set for under 200 bucks back a few years ago from Chris McMahon. He has since started making them similar to 69 pattern, but if was after I bought mine. I think these are similar to a 68 GTX pattern.

Well, I have been driving around the town I live in seeing how the car runs, and making a list of 'odds-n-ends' I need to do to drive around and enjoy this thing during summer/fall. One thing I noticed is my gauges are not accurate, I hooked up a mechanical temp gauge while leaving the factory one hooked up...when showing 230* on dash gauge, it showed 170* on mechanical gauge. My oil pressure was reading low too. I decided since it will probably be a while before I can have my gauges rebuilt/calibrated, I decided to install aftermarket (at least temp and oil pressure) for the time being. I have looked at several gauges over the last couple of weeks, I want them to be electric, and I wanted something that would match the car, sort of retro looking. I wanted autometer, but couldn't find what I was looking for. I actually decided on SunPro Retro Line Gauges, mainly because the look so similar to the factory gauge and have the same 'sweep'. Well since I haven't installed A/C stuff you (will probably be a couple of years), and I deleted the radio, I made a metal bracket that goes where the AC/heat controls go. I got them installed today, and tested....temp is good and oil pressure is good! I think they look decent.
SunPro Retro Line....


Installed in my Charger....



My right front parking lamp wasn't working, so I chased it down and found a bad connection in the wiring, repaired that today too. Also my headlight doors stopped flipping up, it was a simple fix, the vacuum connector came loose from the switch.

Both parking lamps working!.....


And last but not least, got to post a pic of my little helper out in the shop today....


Still got a few little things to take care of, but I'm pretty much ready to burn the roads up!
