This is Part 13 of the story on our new 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona Project Car. In future Parts we will update you on the Project Car itself and the restoration process. (Start with Part 1)
We have entered the Twilight Zone; the time when time seems to stop. The shop crew had been laying down primer and sanding; laying down primer and sanding and repeating as necessary. We wanted the Nuremberg Daytona’s body to be sharp and straight, and that is a slow process.
In the meantime, we had been sourcing the new drive train components, interior upholstery and suspension, exhaust, and a long list of other items which now fill one full bay of my garage. The radio was sent out for restoration along with the gauge cluster.
Work on the nose cone continued, with far more straightening required than ever was envisioned in the beginning. Here is a scattering of photos of the most recent work.
