I picked up all the new tinted glass for the charger at Carlisle 2 weeks ago. So I put the vent windows together using Metros vent window gaskets. The gaskets fit great and required no modifications. I tested all of the new window glass against my original glass and for the most part the cut and shape seems to be very close, however the etched labeling for the vent windows was not only on the wrong side but it was also much larger than my originals. Ordered the tinted glass as that’s what the original Bullitt charger had.
I had all of my original vent parts re-chrome by Paul’s two years ago, and I polished stainless steel. I used a commercial grade black double stick tape to reattach the lower chrome trim to the vent glass. (This worked very well on my 1st Charger 10 years ago) There are 6 raised rivets that are part of the chrome vent Frame used to hold the steel track in place. And on the two chargers I have restored the factory only uses 3 of these which makes it very easy to reattach the chrome to the steel frame in the same manner that the factory did buy peening over the rivets to hold the frame. Be careful peening over the small rivets as the metal is soft and you can dent the other side easily which I found out on my 1st Charger 10 years ago. Then reinstalling the vent glass along with the stop pin and locking handle is relatively easy after cleaning out any excess chrome plating left behind in the small holes.
Thanks!

Pat,

GREAT looking wheels! However, the center cap scale seems small in comparison to what I imagine would be necessary to accommodate the 4.5" bolt pattern. How would the center caps mount? I can't wait to see them on the Charger.

Thank you,

Vinny

Where did you get the polishing wheel from?

Thank you, I’m so looking forward to seeing those wheels on the car again, as it’s been so long since I’ve seen them :-)

The original Inland shifter had a mechanical reverse lockout which was disengaged with the T handle. The Tremec 6 speed also has an reverse lockout, but it is operated by a 12v solenoid. So I modified a door jam domelight switch to fit inside and added a top spring to hold tension on the T handle. This will either directly operate the negative side of the solenoid or a relay? I haven’t quite decided how I will wire that in yet. I just need to add a slight dogleg bend to the shifter, weld on the 2x1x1/2” mount block and then send it out for Chrome;-)
Thanks

I’m using the American Autowire classic update series harness. Very nice harness as it uses all of the original connectors. None of the ends are installed so you can adjust the length of the wires as you see fit, along with having all of the additional wires needed for a modern car such as electric fan, electric fuel pump, door locks, power seats and power windows. It looks original with the same color code, but with one nice addition all of the wires are labeled every 4 inches. Instrument panel worked out great!
A few modifications along with a couple brackets I made to hold the new fuse box securely, with access from the glove box.
Need to paint the gray plastic face plate black to finish it off.
Thanks
Pat

Pat - impressive work on the dash and wiring! That harness kit is pretty interesting.
