1971 Charger Repaint

I've been very disappointed in the quality of the paint job I received when I color changed from Plum Crazy to Ivory Tri-Coat Pearl. So, I'm sucking it up and stripping it down for paint again. The paint shop won't be ready to take it in until mid-February, but since it really doesn't get used much this time of year, might as well get started on tear down. No sense paying someone to do simple disassembly.

Man, that's beautiful. Any way you can post a sound clip of the engine and exhaust? I know I'm not the only one that wants to hear that bad boy running.

Have you checked the ballast resistor? I know it's probably a stupid suggestion, but you can try bypassing it and running a hot wire from the positive post on the battery to the positive post on the coil and then jumping the starter relay to crank it.

I am running an HEI distributor so there is no ballast. Even if I wasn't, the ballast would be bypassed with the key turned to start.

I got the inside of the trunk finished. I found some carpet underlay and cut a piece to fit the package shelf, glued it on, and installed the shelf. Now, I'm not sure the order of how it's supposed to be assembled. I have the interior quarter trim on top of the package shelf but I'm wondering if it should go under.

I bet that guy from Graveyard Carz would know off the top of his head.

For as long as they've been in the spotlight, I don't recall seeing any Graveyard Carz/Mark Worman cars getting top awards at Mopar OEM judging.
Have they and I just missed it?

I think from what I've seen on other Mopars, the trim goes on top the package shelf panel.
I say that, but I've never checked inside a Charger of this vintage though.
