Damn near bankrupted me, but it's nice to know it went to someone who really wanted it -he only lived 5 miles from the company that did all the bodywork. Wanted a Charger all his life, but never thought he'd ever own one.

Yeah I know it doesn't look any different, but I've spent the last couple of evenings re-filling & sanding the bulkhead after the previous coat showed up a few wobbles.
Happy with it now so I've just blown another couple of coats over the front end. Spotted one small run, but I've resisted the urge to try & lose it in more paint. Hopefully it'll either sink as the paint dries & settles, or I can wet sand it out later.

It's right ...there. Between the 2 upright sections. I know it's fixable, but that's gonna bug me all night now Sad
And the masking tape started to peel off the top of the screen rubber, so I'll have to scrape the overspray off with a razor blade when it's dry. Ho hum.

Yeah, I've got a couple of jobs to do inside the cab, plus wet sanding the interior paint, but I'd like to get the last of the green on this week if it's going to be warm.

Thanks Archie Smiley
You do know I work for a living too don't you? Smiley
Most of this is done late afternoon/early evening. It was my day off yesterday, but I do have other things to do in my life too Smiley
You can see by the number of mounting holes in the bulkhead, that it has lots of stuff bolted to it, plus engine ancillaries in front of it, so if I don't paint it now it would have to wait for another complete strip down, (which might never happen!), & I don't want to drive it half done again.
It's nearly done now -honest Smiley

You can't possibly work as well Andy ? Your always in the garage covered in filler and green paint ? HULK is your new name ? Grin hotrods are always half done..we're never happy with that little bracket or how you fitted something ..that's why it took me 30 years to build my old motor ? Cheesy

"Team leader" -harr, ha, ha! Smiley
I'm just the one that pays the bill to keep the lights on here Smiley
You know I'm only taking my time to annoy you now Stinkey don't you Smiley
11.30pm & I've just got home from the garage. Arrived there at about 7 this evening, but really not sure what I've achieved in that time. Just cleaning up sections of chassis inside the cab, ready to brush paint it once the body's finished.
Last grotty job is to attack these mounts with my trusty broken hacksaw blade. The hoop of tubing under the dash that holds the steering column, pedals, brake servo etc used to be welded in place -until I realised it'd stop the body ever being removed. Now it slots into these tube stubs & bolts in, but I'm slightly concerned it's a bit of a sloppy fit. With the steering wheel in place there'll be a lot of leverage on it & I don't want it to wobble about. So I figure if I cut a slot down through the mounts they can be bolted up tight around the top bit, (it's ERW tubing so is soft enough to give a little). Obviously they're really inaccessible though -this sort of stuff always is -so will take a bloomin' week to cut through. No I can't fit a grinder in there & don't want to spray sparks & dust in there anyway. Hopefully that's the very last modification.
