amt 1970 dodge superbee

Hi started this one about 10 years ago which I had painted and mocked up but never got back to it until a couple of weeks ago. Had to strip back the paintwork as I painted it back in the days when I didn't use primer and it started chipping all over the place. Got the body and hood all cleaned up and started with duplicolor grey primer and then hit it with duplicolor vivid yellow from the spray can. Polished up the paintwork about a week ago, did the bmf and c stripes and now waiting for a clear coat. While I was at it I decided on a change of look from when I painted it originally by swapping out the rims to give it a more street/strip look from the late seventies/early eighties style. Found the rims in the parts box which came from the henry j gasser kit and also modified the front stub axles and to raise the front just a little. At the moment has good-year slicks on the rear but came across some tall profile street tyres that I will be using instead. Making up some traction bars for the rear end at the moment unless someone knows of a kit that has a decent looking set. Changed out the motor as well and decided to put in a dohc hemi for something a little different but will swap out the air cleaner for something a bit more old school to keep with the theme of the car. Thinking of going for a brown interior on this one instead of the usual black/white. Hope to have some clear coat on saturday along with a couple of more bodies needing it, as its just turned winter here but we should be having a 20 degree day. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

Thanks everyone for your comments. This one would have to be one of my best paint jobs to date which I am surprised with as it was painted with an old rattle can of duplicolor I had laying around hopefully the clear coat goes on just as well.
