five steps forward and one back.. Things going pretty good but a bump on occasion.

lettering installed on hood. Found the hood wobbled and didn't seat well. It had before when I drove it but I attributed that to weakened/rusted inner fenders. Apparently it was the hood hinges being worn out. A new set is on the way.

Windshield and back glass installed. One of the installers is a Mopar Guy. Has a 78 Dodge truck that over the years converted from a gas to a Cummins, and did a great job of repainting in the orange and black Macho or Power Wagon theme.

Always a temptation to put the hood black out on, but back in the day, that was seldom seen on the Challengers. Figure putting one on this takes away from the unique cars which actually had the option.

The RT is set to be picked up this weekend, but I am away on vacation. I hope to bring it home next Sunday. I will be installing carpet and recovering the seats myself.

Lot of mechanical and electrical fine tuning to be one. It is my hope to make a last list of all the things I need and get them and the Indy show in March. Will be on the road this Spring!

Updates won't be coming as fast as before. Thanks everyone for following along and offering guidance.

Just a brief update. RT has been on the back burner as other projects non car related needed attention.

Tax check came in, so I gave Dante a call, and asked about Black Friday prices. The special had ended a day or so before but he helped me out.

I have burnt orange seat covers and some pads coming. I was astounded on the length of delivery time, but in the interim, I hope to get the exhaust installed an the alignment done.

I promise picks as things progress!
