    I'm just getting started on a Superbird project, so I'm gathering information and material. I've read a lot of member's posts and see that quite a few of you have built clones and replicas or restored real Superbirds. I'm hoping to get to know some of you and learn from your experiences.
    One question I have, does anyone have a reference that illustrates the location and dimensions for the mounting holes for the wing? I have "googled" for hours but haven't found anything about the wing location.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.
    Chris

    Thank you, I'll check that out right now. I'm excited to get this project started since I've had a wing for many years.

    Thanks Hemi, I'll see if I can get one from there too.
    I really appreciate the help.

    Hey Hemi,
    I went to that performance car graphics and ordered the gaskets but I didn't see anywhere that had the location. Do they include the location with the gaskets?
    Also, I went to the Dodgecharger site you sent and they have a ton of information! Thanks!

    Email him and ask about it. He'll send it to you with an order of decals or whatever.

    It's a great site. My build thread might not be around much longer thanks to photobucket, so check it out while it's here.

    I'm checking it out now! That's amazing! I hope I don't have to do that much body work because I'm a newbie. Like they say, a grinder and paint makes the welder I ain't!
    You're doing a great job! I'm reading carefully and studying the pictures so I can learn from your work. I hope those pictures stay up for awhile.

    How did you do that??? Thanks! I couldn't figure it out. I even started reading the Help files, maybe I should hire my nephew, he's 7 and knows these things better than me...
