Thanks disastermaster!

The paint was a gift from a friend.  He got it from MCW.

Thanks Mr. Mike.

You might just have gotten me interested in doing a car.....  after so many years.

Now I just have to find some wide Keystones.

Would seafoam be the same as this......  ?

Seafoam Turquoise Metallic is a different in color than the picture shown.  It is more of a teal color than a blue.  Although the Auto Color Library shows the blue as Seafoam Turquoise.  Maybe MCW got the shade wrong?

Maybe it is B3 Ice Blue.

Progress is sure looking good on this one Mike. Good on you for the way you tackled that molded in exhaust system. Those are always tricky.

I did some detailing on the front grille, rear trunk lid and the taillights.  Then I started taping the hood for the Performance Hood Treatment.

More GTX to come...

Molded in exhaust?  I think you had some other model in mind when you had posted that.

I finally painted the '69 GTX with Tamiya TS-6 Matt Black.  Next will be Gloss Clear over the Matt Black to bring out a glossiness to the paint.

I have a limit of 3 pictures per posting.  Must be from when SA had a three picture limit and I have stuck with that over the years.  Yes, the hood and the rocker panels where painted with Tamiya Matt Black.  I tried to position the picture to include both the hood and the rocker panels.

I always liked the GTX over the Charger in the B bodies. Great color choice, she looks awesome.

That paint job is georgeous Mike. Love that engine too. My old hands and eyes won't let me do work any where near that one any more. Keep up the great work.

I started working on the engine compartment of the GTX and installed the battery and the master cylinder and I stopped at the wiper motor.  The wiper motor is shaped like the Roadrunner horn according to the instructions and not like a wiper motor.  I guess I'll have to make one since I don't have one available. 

More GTX to come...

That does look like a horn

It is a horn!  This has been subject of much criticism for many, many years.  Even my earlist Roadrunner had used the horn as a wiper motor.  I realized my and AMT's error and corrected it later by manufacturing a wiper motor.  I'm sure that the newest release of the Roadrunner and the GTX has the horn in place of a proper wiper motor.

The two black painted 'cinnamon rolls' are horns.

Seems like the wiper mechanism but missing the motor.  Almost looks like they intended to have a cylender glued onto the nub/pin on the right.  A bit of sprue would fix it I bet.

Thanks,

John

John, maybe but there is the space of the bracket to the mounting nub that makes the part questionable, plus the missing cylinder.  Sorry, but that is the Roadrunner horn.  

I found the wiper motor on an old AMT Dodge Challenger firewall and I added a power brake booster.
