This is Part 14 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 are into the slow and tedious part of the build. The part where you prime and sand, prime and sand and repeat until the body is straight and body lines are sharp.
It was determined that the original Daytona nose would be put on a shelf and not used because it had sustained too much damage over the years to make restoration practical. A fiberglass nose was ordered up from a well known source but it did not fit well so we have hired a metal fabricating artist to build a new steel nose. It should be ready for a test fit in a couple of weeks.
