    Great job on the car. Yeah maybe it'll remind you of the Starsky and Hutch stripe just because it goes up and over the roof, but it's quite a bit different. To each their own!!!

      Harleydodge,
      Great job and awesome color combination (red with white stripes)
      Just for fun I would love to see a 73/74 RR painted Red with Petty Blue Stripes.
      Again, nice job and enjoy your Roadrunner.

      Great job, great save and that rear bumper is really tough to bend or deform in any but a severe impact. I had two cars commit suicide on my rear bumper, (Honda accord and Ford Fiesta) both hard enough to tear into the other cars radiators, hoods and fenders with no damage to the rear bumper on my '73. It took a ford 150 hitting it in the center with its passenger side corner after spinning in a rainstorm to actually bed it in the middle. It looks like you left some space for it to move. If mounted to the brackets without too much modification it should hold up well in small impact...

      Just my two cents.

      Beautiful Job, love it! It's a shame you couldn't have kept the Dart also, would have made great a great pair of bookends. I love the wheels too, don't see those around very much. It looks to me like you saved them from the Dodge unless you bought the same wheels again. What size meat and rims are on there? Really pops and turns heads. By the way; "Yipe's stripes, Beachnut's got em"; along with lot's of Mopars ! They are kind of a calling card to the competition which usually sends a bright yellow stripe up their backs! Well done and best of luck with it!

      Thanks Mopes. The rears are 295-50-15 on 10" rims and the fronts are 205-70-15 on 6" rims.
      Well this one is about done so it's time to let it go and get started on my 38 Plymouth coupe.
      So I am listing it in the for sale thread.
