    It looks like you just bought a new Reproduction Imperial from Year One or AMD.

    The devil is in the detail with these cars and you are going above and beyond towards this project.

    Everything looks incredible Julian but I really wish you would store your hood on one of its sides, not on the points of the rear.

    It indeed looks like a repro body from AMD ;) But it's all original Mopar steel (from 4 different Mopars, but that counts, I guess) :p

    More Parts are back from the Painter :)

    Slowly but surely, everything is Painted!

    One wheel has to be redone because it had to much dings visible...

    Thanks to @C Body Bob , I have another Maplight assembly without the Antenna Switch and the Faderwheel, because I don't need these anymore. The Antenna is in the windshield now and the new radio has the fader build in.

    The outer tube of the steering column got the same emersion rust and paint removal and CDC bath as all the other parts and the body. It was not possible to clean it any other way.

    This photo just came from the CDC company. I thought this was pretty cool! :)

    This was just after dipping and before burning in the CDC.
