last two. ran into issue with the leaf spring front bushings. Too large diameter. Supplier said the small diameter are for Hemi springs. I know the history of the car and doubt they were upgraded. Change they were out of standard and threw a set of Hemi springs under it during build?

How else are hemi springs different?

PAINT!!!! FINALLY!!!!!! due to go to the booth in a week or so. Vinyl top guy is scheduled to come pretty soon too.

going with a white rather than original black. Suggestions on white stripes, or just RT badge on fenders with maybe white bumble bee an the butt?

A little reluctant to add the black out on the hood- I NEVER saw a Challenger with that back in the day. Must have been a super rare option. Same as the dust trail on the 70 "runner. Never saw them back then, and I was a big time fan of the car back then.

Good choice on the white top. It will set the paint off nicely. thumbs
I would probably go with the white stripe but that's just me. wink
