Thanks for all of the compliments guys. I am going to keep working strong on all of the bolt on stuff. The body & paint work will take quite some time.

I don't think that garage is dirty enough to "properly" restore that car ...

Anyway, progress is lookin good on yours, and a little picture motivation does help the ego.

I also have an FY1 70 Charger R/T SE 4 speed track pack car thats waiting it's turn. What a coincidence! Mine just got bumped back a spot,when I aquired a 70 V code Charger R/T last April.

Nice project and it will be a looker. I have never heard of removing a good roof in order to clean it. Interesting.

Time for an update.

I just placed my AMD order for quarters, trunk floor and extensions. The replacement work should get started soon. I hope to have some new photos in a week or so.

Here is the trunk floor before removal.

Someone robbed the 4 speed hump and front driver floor in the past. I purchased a new AMD section for the replacement. Also picked up an original 4 speed hump that will be used.

Stopped at the shop today to see what progress has been made. They are moving along quite well. Here is a shot of the trunk sheet metal removed. They were part way through sand blasting the rails outdoors when some rain blew in.

Quarters have been partially removed. Complete quarters will be put on. However, they wanted to ensure the fit will be good before removing the entire panel. Decided today to go with new outer wheel houses as the lips were not as good as expected on the originals.
