      A sweet project car - looks solid! All of the elixirs on the right side trunk in the last pic show that you're having plenty of fun already. :grin:

        Looks like a good start. As long as you're building a clone, you may as well shoot for a GTX instead of a road runner. You already have the grill and tail lights. :)

        I always liked the honeycomb grill, I got one in case I want to change the look of my road runner from time to time.

            Nice find and already looks like your having fun polishing it for now, looks real good. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive on July 2nd, being transported right now and should take 7 to 10 days. Good Luck on your project.

            I had a 70 Satellite in the same color combo. I sold it to a guy in the New England states. The car was a 318, but had a 340 in it. Nice color combo!

            If you're gonna make RR instead of GTX, for God's sake, don't mess up that grill or the stainless trim across the back. Carefully remove them and put them on e-bay, that stuff is impossible to find, and the last full set of rear stainless I saw sold for almost a grand.

            I like the color combo, but then again, maybe I'm biased? :)
