Looks like you are coming along very nicely and I think it's great that you are doing this car to your specifications. Since the original drive train is gone, you don't have the fender tag and I assume you don't have the build sheet either, none of the "purists" should beat up on you.

I built a '68 Barracuda to my specifications and desires and I just had my NM RR restored to Almost OE specifications and building the Barracuda was A LOT more fun.

Have fun with the build and keep the pictures of your progress coming. What color on the exterior and interior?

The color is going to be black,always wanted a black B-body.It will have a silver Bee stripe on the rear.Black interior with silver highlights.The interior will look mostly stock except the front seats.I will have lots more pics soon.

I thought about doing the red stripe,but there is another black Bee that runs around here that has the red stripe.I was going to paint it silver like member BeeQuick's Bee that is the car that inspired me to get a Bee instead of a Charger.But I don't want to be a copycat either.You don't think a silver stripe would look good?I can;t remember ever seeing one so hopefully that will set me apart

How about red reflective?? Looks killer especially when the light hits it at night.You could also definitely do a silver reflective and any good car graphics place could make it for you.Phoenix car graphics can do it.It's the difference between something that just lays there and something that POPS!!My silver car went to Missoula Montana where it lives the pampered life,no more John Force burnouts or drag racing. Kinda makes me sad and I was thinking of doing another very similar out of a coronet this time but they are hard to find in any kind of good shape.

And the passenger side could not get a real good angle.You can see we cut off the quarter extensions probably could have used em but got new ones instead.I would have took pictures but he working to damn fast!You can see the patches we made from new amd pieces.





Here is a before with everything intact.According to the prior owner a tire came apart after hitting some metal and hit the floor hard.This is the only problem with the entire floor.





another angle

Here is the passenger side quarter skin welded on.I have pics of test fitting and stitch welding but for some reason I cant get them to offload of my camera.Anyone might know why?If they wont I'm going to be pissed.I already lost all my disassembly pics The quarter skins are goodmark I bought these dirt cheap and they really are not to bad.AMD would have been better but I got these almost for free.My body guy says they should not need a whole lot to block out.

Making great progress there! Black is my favorite. It's hard to get right too, but if your painter goes the extra mile, it could look like this:
