I know one thing for sure, when it, they, or any car I had a big hand in getting it straight is complete, there's nothing more gratifying than seeing it cast nice reflections after you buff it. Than when it gets final detailed and ready to go then it just screams for a 12 pack as everybody is running around the car taking pics of it in glee. I don't buff much here but can hang skill wise with the painter and when I do buff I enjoy it. Lot of body techs I know feel it's under them to buff butt I take it in stride and look at it as another opportunity to appreciate the efforts of the team as the shine from buffing breathes life into it. A great feeling indeed.

Mark D Looks good. I love 68 and 69 Chargers. I had a 69 when I was a kid (before there was a Dukes of Hazard show).

tech69 unfotunately, I didn't have a big hand in this restoration. I did do the firewall and did the first round of blocking though. This was already in the works when I got hired and heard the old tech was missing all kinds of stuff in terms of dings and dents and it got primed a gazillion times. There's still two tiny swallows on the decklid but it's a really clean and straight restoration.

btw, this car is not easy to block out and doesn't cast perfect reflections due to the bows on the quarters and fenders and the odd shape of the doors, but the doors are pretty cool, man.
