talladega is coming too fast for my wallet, lol. no way the car will be done, but i do hope to have the cone on it and the engine back together for the trip.

i just could not bring myself to put a glass nose on the car. luckily, an old friend pointed me toward a new friend, who he made me a great deal.

i have the cone, z brackets, grille frame and screen, side markers, and turn signals. now to gather the rest.

baby steps...

i also picked up the headlight actuators and a complete set of factory vacuum lines. now to obtain the buckets, pivots, and doors

then it's on to the latch tray. then the lower valance. then the one hundred other things.

a big thank you to the forum members here that have helped me get to this point.

the only extra stuff i have are one set each of reproduction trunk hinges and wing supports, along with two used driver side turn signals. these items came as part of a package deal with the brackets above, that i needed.

the extra parts may be sold already, just waiting on confirmation. if you'd sell the spoiler, pm me photos and a price, as i might be interested

it's a dodge motorhome chassis that was dragged outside to make room, no hauler conversion work done to it.

the tires are about 35 years old. i wouldn't trust them down the driveway.

thanks for the encouragement on the parts and progress. it's a long and expensive process

also bought a set of pivots from mike.

great looking parts, incredible packaging, and awesome to deal with.

now off to procure headlight doors, fender scoops, and the lower valance.

i'm trying to guilt mike into making me a set, but he's booked up for the time being. likely summer before he can get to them, he said.

i'm also playing phone tag with ted janek, who left me a voice mail about his offerings. he now offers three different quality/price levels. i can let you know the details after i talk to him, hopefully tomorrow.

even if it's not running, it will be nice to see it taking up more room in the barn.

your car is looking phenomenal. hope both you and the mrs. are doing well, my friend

finally dragged the nose cone home from my buddy's shop today, nearly a year after buying it.

thought i'd take advantage of the photo op before sitting it safely on the floor.

time to look for a replacement 26 inch core support, to replace the 22 inch one  that came off the donor car years ago

shoot me a price, john. you have my email and phone number.

if you're available one afternoon this week, i can head up and get it, along with the other stuff you've held on to for me.
not to mention drool over what this car could look like someday.
that would also give me a chance to see if i want to bite the bullet for the other sheet metal.

Is there a published parts list that details all the required parts and modifications to turn a 69 Charger into a Daytona?
