Tonys parts were very accommodating when asked about the ignition switch. he said someone else e mailed them w a similar problem last week. send it back and we will refund you. its about time someone gets customer service.

To me the hobby is one of dedication and hard work. That last detail no one else will bother with is my calling card. As far as selling the car it will always be a loser if you look to get your investment back. Whether it be a resto mod or a concourse restoration you are selling originality or quality. Both of which are a judgement call. I am reminded of Homer who said it is not the destination but the journey.

So for a disgruntled restorer I did manage to get the dash together. I will say it was no thanks to the quality service of the distributors. I think I am going to start a web-site for crappy parts. I don't plan to bail on my car because of it.

I think most people that restore a car go thru that period where they wish they had never seen the car. I know I did and not that long ago but I keep pushing forward a little at a time and it finally adds up. I along with others use this thread for encouragement. After 6 yrs I will have mine ( 71 Duster 340 )finished this spring. Long time coming!

Hello everyone,

I sold this car to Mike. Dreams of seeing it in it's original state is always on my mind. Thinking that it may leave NJ to some far away location, maybe never to be seen again, is so sad to me. Now, having read that the road runner will continue it's restoration journey, made me grin from ear to ear. It is in the right set of MOPAR hands, which I knew from the beginning.

The assembly of the perfect dash, was probably a great way to get the whole puzzle rolling again! Sort of instant gratification?

Can I help you drive the hell out of it? Hell, my A12 for you to drive a couple of hours as a swap would be sweet. LOL. Sometimes I think if I had just one car to own, it would be this one. GREAT eye appeal with a 4 speed. That is why I bought it in the first place. What else could you ask for?

Talk to you soon,

Vinny

Vinny


Based on the pics you got that right..

My 67 was totally disassembled in a hundred boxes and on a rotisserie when my wife of 20 years left me for another ( not crying anymore, just my car story)guy...
I was 39, had 11 more payments to own my home ( which is now assessed at 1 million) had nowhere to go or send my car.. I was at my bottom..
Needless to say I am still here and the car came out pretty nice..
Just like life, ups and downs...

My pleasure Mike.

Is that John Antonelli's recently purchased A12 runner? He installed those wheels when he acquired it. I can't tell if that's him behind the wheel. I love that color combo with the blue interior.

Be well,

Vinny

Hey Mike, Hi Vinny, Yes that looks like John's A12. It came with those wheels for driving. Mike I'm glad your back on track, I think the dash was a great piece to complete because it does give you jewelry to look at when down. Take it at whatever pace is needed but don't back away you'll be sorry later.

What step are you up to now? I believe final paint should be right around the corner.

So the cowl had to be repainted after an unfortunate mess up on my part when aligning the door. The side got scratched and with no logical place to break it off I just redid the whole thing. Fenders will be going on permanently now. More to update soon.

The fenders where put on today for good. Everything lined up fantastic. Door latches were put in with the strikers and the rear window regulators with all new hardware were installed. Time for some finish body work!

OOOOPS. I'm wrong. What appeared to be a reflection on the upper door frame is body work. I should use my glasses from now on.

Vinny, yeah oops on the cowl. I scratched it lining the doors up. I know a guy who can fix that stuff-lol. Sorry no pewter yet. i do plan on doing the roof in the near future so that will be done. Family and house stuff in between but it will get there. that Road Runner book is supposed to be shipped with info on my car in it. I per-ordered mine.I'll let you know how it is when i get it.

Touched up all the bolt heads for the fenders and hood latch support. I also had to redo the paint on the driver side inner fender well. I wasn't happy with an are so it wasn't much to prep and redo it. Tomorrow I'll start prepping and taping to do the satin black behind the grill on the radiator support.
