LOL. I'm not even close to being in the same league as Pat. Pat has more skills and patience then me. Mine will be a satin or patina job.

I spent about three hours knocking undercoating out of the wheel wheels and from the hump above the rear axle. I think I have about 3-4 more hours until it is completely finished.

I am following this with interest, as I love these years of the Chargers. You are doing a very nice job so far, keep up the good work. I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out. If you would like check out our build on a '66 Charger.

The left quarter panel patch was AMD and needed trimming since it was too long-see the first picture.
