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 has been laying down primer and sanding; laying down primer and sanding and repeat as necessary. We want the Nuremberg Daytona’s body to be sharp and straight and that is a slow process.
In the meantime we have been sourcing the new drive train components, interior upholstery as well as 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 continues with far more straightening required than ever was envisioned in the beginning. Here are a scattering of photos of the most recent work.
