      Got the radiator side supports painted and the front end back together this morning. Time to do some yard work now.

              Painted the tail panel and assembled one door and quarter window and trim. Not a bad morning so far.

                    Well, I got done what I wanted to get done today, it just took longer than I expected.

                    Both doors are assembled, quarter glass and rear side panels are in, roof rail moldings and weatherstrips, body wiring, trunk and tail are back together, rear wheel well moldings and good wheels are all on. Except for the stripe and rear window, I'll be done by next weekend.

                        I bought the lift at a local commercial auto supply company. Don't know the brand because they rebadged it to their business name. But I've had it for about 10 years with no problems.

                              Your car is looking great. Always fun to assemble a painted car without one scratch.

                                I thought so. Those rear wheels looked way too deep dished to be stockers and that is the same size I am going to run on my Roadrunner. I have 235/60's on the front of the charger and the same rears that you are running. Seems to be a good combo either size.
