You're killing me with that Camaro banner in the background of all these pics.    :villagers:

Haha, legacy from the last car build - having a hard time taking it down :-)  I have cuda and mopar banners on the other wall, that help? ;-)

You'll have to take your pictures from a different angle.  :lol2:

Are you planning on adding the factory "Cuda" tail panel chrome trim to the trunk lid and quarters ?

Hi Alan, no - not much Chrome on this one.  Bumpers will be painted green too.

Okay, good...Now I don't have to inform you that you messed up the black-out on the tail panel.
It should go under the trim, but since you're doing it YOUR way.....you can follow YOUR own rules :cheers: :2thumbs:

Looks good.

I recommend you paint the organosol lower onto the spot weld area so no paint is shining betwen the tail panel and bumper.

At first I was going to say the same, but then he added that the bumper will be green as well, so I think he's chose the best possible look :2thumbs:

Yeah I see what you guys are saying.  Hmm.  I will get the bumper painted and installed and see if I should go farther with the organisol.  Thanks guys appreciate the feedback.

So what do you think about the wing- satin black or organisol black?

Well, work continues...front clip is on and I'm nearly finished gapping the car.  Big job.  Not perfect, but it's pretty good.  Got to cut, buff and polish the fenders, hood and quarters and then the billboards go on.  Can't wait for that.

Looking good ! I see you got the door locks in the handles, now you'll have to remove the door handles to put the billboards on :pullinghair:.... Rear bumper guards will get mailed out today !

:-) was laughing at myself about the door handles too.  I should have waited but the excitement to put the handles on the fresh paint over powered my good judgement.

Thanks about the bumper guards! Looking forward to getting them and the rear bumper on.
