Very cool project Skicker! I think the black looks better than the
tan? color of the engine bay, oh well. Ya know, my Duster started out
almost exactly like yours did!! '72, Gold, tan vinyl bench interior,
318, A/C, whitewalls/hubcaps.....now it has a 1971 340 based 040" block,
that is 418" CI, Eagle 4" forged crank, Scat rods, Keith Black pistons,
Bullet solid cam,Victor jr intake, fully ported/polished J heads, Demon 850 cfm mech. carb. 727 all fully built, 8-3/4 with 4.10 Richmond gears...
etc. But my car is now Chili Pepper Red, instead of the original Gold. I really wish the previous owner, would have left it in the original paint, oh well.
The interior was changed to all factory black, with original factory bucket seats.
I bought mine the way it is currently, it was all built less than 5 years ago, with about only 575 miles currently on the drivetrain. I wish you all the luck to you, and your dad on the Duster, keep sendind us pics of the progress! beer

Thx...I tried to push for a color change in the interior too...He decided he wanted to take everything apart and clean it up as good as it will....
Once I removed everything and it was cleaned up it was all still 8 different shades of a tan-gold-off white...
The door panels and plastic backers had never been off of this before as all plastic was in place with the original black tape.
It is now being prepped for a re-do with a color similar to the original along with a slightly darker color for the metal panels on the door and around the side windows...
I managed to get the brakes completed and bled out...
Shout out to Cass bow for choosing the m/cyl bore about perfect for 4 corner 4 piston disc brakes. Car has a great pedal feel...
A few brake lines were re-routed and a rear adjustable prop valve was installed along with 12" long stainless hoses up front.

Interior began to go back in...
All door panels, package tray and headliner are completed...
I did have to buy new armrests and bases as both were broken and the armrest pads were covered over by the previous owner...
Splurged for a new dome light lens and chrome lock knobs...
Turns out I had a decent dash pad tucked away so we used it...
Now I think he wants new seat covers... runaway
Before and after pics included...

tan, when my car was new...keep updating us with progress, have a great
Christmas. Santa
