Got some new treads for my chrome slots, H70-15's. There brand new, should give a clean vintage look.

The factory slots cleaned up very nicely with steel wool. Now I need to order some repro center caps for them.
Still not sure exactly how I want to paint the outside up. I'd still love to get the pick m up decals made and paint the ram charger black. I'm thinking it would look more correct this way. I'd change the radiator support, hood, grill, and lower valance of course to make it look like an 80 pick m up version. My seats a 80 style so that would work great. I'll also install the power windows in my doors as well. That cant be that hard. Any one on here ever do the conversion to power windows? Also any one know what 80 ram chargers came with for a center console. Almost look like the 80 plus style center console in the factory brochure. That would be awesome as there much easier to find and they actually have way better cup holders.

Started looking the ramcharger over this weekend and it should clean up really easy. Took the interior out of my 80 macho trailduster so it wouldn't get any worse. The back seat should clean up really nice and I'll just need to redo the cloth inserts on the front.

It's actually a really rare factory t/a edition ramcharger, that's why it has that cool exhaust system.
