Awesome! My goal is having her ready for the Thanksgiving rod run. Not sure we will make that goal, but hoping!

Not sure if you've settled on a paint scheme yet, but Richard Petty said in an interview that his '72-'74 Chargers were his favorite car that he raced. The Petty Blue/Granatelli Red scheme is also kind of an interesting twist.

I believe they ran them all the way up to '78.  The reason: these had better aero than the "aero" cars they replaced.

Most of my days off this week have been spent between Ikea and turning a spare bedroom into the world's largest condo...for Barbie. My wife collects them and we all know the story about a happy wife! 

 

But I have managed to get the K member assembly back into swing:

Hopefully next week I'll have it back under the car. I have some little cleanup stuff left to do first and it's much easier when I can stand up in the engine bay!

I'm really digging this build.  Not that you asked but I prefer the two tone paint jobs on the Charger race cars of that era.
