    My long term project 1968 RR
    with A-12 lift-off hood 383/479ci-6bbl
    LL1 surf turquoise metallic,
    with black below the body line
    & a thin red accent line...
    {after being ultra flat black for 10 year}
    Still needs a cut & buff,
    but wanted to get it out & share

    New Halogen headlights &
    all new marker lights & taillight/backup bulbs etc.
    cleaned up the org. chrome & trim pieces a bit
    I'm still debating on putting the wheel well arch trim back on,
    maybe get new one the org.'s are a bit rough...

    So far I kind of like it with out the wheel well trim...

    Not show quality by any stretch,
    but looks decent for a garage paint job
    the engine bay is still old org. paint,
    I'll do that at a later time...

    never mind the date & time stamp
    it was 10-29-2017 1st time out in the sunlight

    a lot of things...when my garage burned down and I lost my other runner plus my Uncle's 300, it was like a steel toed kick to the nuts. I mainly got the car I have now because it was a weird feeling not to have a Mopar muscle car for the first time in over 20 years. I was going thru the motions..but really into it. Took me a long time to get that feeling back....then I got my buddy to do the body work, and then he was diagnosed with COPD and couldn't spray iy. And a lot of body guys won't paint over someone else's work, so I said screw it and put the car back together again.
