    A "Coyote Duster" at it's very best. I owned a real one many years ago. Mine was a 383 car with an automatic and console, B5 Blue, inside and vinyl top. Mine had the deluxe door panels with fake wood grain that carried over to the dash. Mine also had the hood blackout treatment, and Magnum 500 wheels.

    I definitely clicked on the Like button. I restore old Mopar's now and I specialize in the E and B body cars.

    Yours looks wonderful. T5 is a color you don't see too often. What did you use for the carpet ? It looks SO realistic too.

    You nailed it buddy !

  4. Very nice build, Thomas @moparpep
    The interior is really great, the looks of the carpet, the seatbelts, all looking very realistic.

    • Seat belts are beveled pieces of styrene painted in Saddle color, and the belts are made from Cloth Surgical Tape also painted. The carpet is Tan Flocking.

  5. Beautiful detailing work on the interior and the engine compartment - that engine looks real. Excellent paintwork.

  6. Excellent work Thomas, Beep, Beep.
