This is pretty much the way it looks now.  Front fenders are in primer.

Looking good.

Those rear corner sections are notorious for being a PITA...no one has ever made a good one and they require a good body man to massage the heck out of them.

I found the corners both needed work and the rear valence needed extensions added on both sides too.  You should be able to get an idea here.

Thanks Ted!

Looks like you had to add to the width of the valance to get the gaps at the corners correct.  That's the route we are going to have to take too.

Seam sealer in those areas?  What did the factory do?

When the car came in the corners were manufactured out of bondo and the seams were cut in with a saw.  LOL

You're welcome.  I did have to add width to the rear valence to get them to meet properly.  I believe the factory did seam sealer on those joints and I plan on doing that as well.  My corners were 100% bondo too!

Factory didn't do sealer on them but it won't hurt to do it. I did it on mine.

HELP!!!
Need some pictures of the trunk torsion rods installed.  We have a '68 Road Runner here and thought they'd be the same but no go.
Can somebody help with some pics?

Thank you!

Googled again and found a link for some excellent photos.

It's been awhile since I've updated. We waited a few months on a back ordered R qtr from AMD. All the metal work is completed and has had one coat of primer thats been blocked out. Another coat of primer on now.
Interior is going to get sprayed with Lizard Skin then top coated.
Car was originally B5, but we did a spray out of both B5 and the new B5 blue for the newer Chargers. Waiting for the customer to decide.

Here are some updated pics of the '70.  I'd post more pics but this site is difficult.   

B5 blue '70 Charger painted.











It's getting Holley Sniper EFI with an intank pump from Tanks Inc.  Right now we are getting the plumbing done for the EFI.  Waiting for the interior from Legendary it was ordered in December.

Does anyone have some detailed pics of the under hood wiring?  Would like them for proper harness routing locations.  Actually engine and forward lamp harness pictures.

Thank you!
