    Here's a couple of pictures with the engine in.  The radiator hoses still need to be added.

    I'm treating these buildings as "real", so ice had to come up with some logical and fun ideas for the rear.   However I'm not doing interiors like the garage.

    Over the years i have found many rare pictures of the dukes of Hazzard on the internet and saved them on my local hard drive. Because i couldn't find a thread generally about these i thought i'd start my own. Unfortunately for many of these pictures I can't find the source of so some might be from this Forum. If some were from this forum i am sorry for re-posting them.
    If i can find the source of a picture I post I'll post the link to the source.
    Anyway, here are some of the pictures.

    Pain Trane, I guess the Polara and Monaco's we're destroyed during she show and crushed or send to a junkyard. I wouldn't be surprised if it is/was on the same junkyard as where they found Lee 1. I could be wrong and might have dreamed it but I remember something about a Police 1 or 2 sticker found on a dashboard of a wreck. It could have been the same junkyard.

    The Dukes with a laughing track? This isn't all and out Comedy like Mr. Bean where it adds to story. Dukes was classed as a comedy but personally see it as somethign else with added comedy.

    Roth Potter reacted to HossC in "Farewell, Hazzard" conceived as a possible finale to the show?   
    I don't remember how the episodes were originally shown, but, according to IMDb, it looks 'Carnival of Thrills' and '10 Million Dollar Sheriff' were screened back-to-back, but the two parts of 'Undercover Dukes' were shown a week apart. Now that we have DVDs, it doesn't make much difference as there's no waiting. The two-parters also let us have slightly deeper storylines.

    Are you sure you want to add silver highlight? It already looks very nice.
    Factory correct? What are you talking about? General Lee is not made in a factory. So much is added like the pushbar, new wheels, rollbar.

    Before I post the new pictures, I have so far posted 1868 pictures in total so I've kind of lost track of what I have and have not posted. Yes everything I post I put in a different folder but this is no guarantee I find another picture or the same one again after I forgot how one looks like. If you see any pictures which are the same and are not quite a bit larger then the previous one please tell me. That way I can remove a double post. Of course for older posts all this will do is remove a picture but if you see any picture I post starting from this post I will make sure I edit the post to post another picture.
     
    If I had a smartphone or tablet I´d make sure I use this one as my background.

    Looks like those four pretty car strippers are driving around in their Jeeps and are at it again. Are they still running that new auto parts store in town?

    How cool would it be if Ben made it a Cooters Place?
    Although Personally I'd rather see them rebuild the Valencia Oaks Movie Ranch cause it's empty at the moment anyway. The only thing still existing thing from the show there is the small bridge used once and the sort of earth dam.

    Thanks Roger!  The early Georgia episodes are my favorite and this is my favorite look for the General Lee.  I like the earlier darker tan interior more than the later light colored interior.  
    Here is some more work I did on the interior.  I painted the interior seats and door panels in Tamiya acrylic XF-59 Desert Yellow which is actually a dark tan color that's a good match to the saddle tan interiors in the 69 Chargers.  The dash board, rear speaker deck and the kick panels in front of the doors panels are painted a darker color.  It's a mix of Testors acrylic leather and dark tan.  These areas were a darker color than the seats and door panels in 69 Chargers.  
    The carpeting is made with Champagne colored embossing powder I got from Michael craft store.  I painted on some Testors acrylic clear and poured the powder on top.  It gives the look of carpeting.  
    The center console is painted to look like wood grain although it isn't showing up to well in the pictures.  I painted the inset in the dash Testors acrylic silver and then painted Tamiya acrylic flat black on top.  The Tamiya acrylic paint is easily removed with Windex where as the Testors acrylic paint will not be removed with Windex.  I used a toothpick slightly moistened with Windex to remove the black paint around the gauges and to pick out the details of the radio and some buttons.  The red button on the left was painted after this was done.  It was sealed with Testors acrylic clear.
    The trim around the center console, door handles and the straight molding towards the top of the door panels is done with Bare Metal Foil.  The window roller handles, round Charger emblem(in the top of the door panels), and trim around the shifter area are done with Testors acrylic silver paint.
    I also added some Bare Metal Foil trim on the head rests but haven't taken any pictures yet.

    Roth Potter got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Did anybody ever use turn signals?   
    Well, the General didn't even have turn signals on the front part of the car as they were usually cover with bondo or something so 68 and 69 Charger front fenders could be used interchangeably. I do however remember seeing the rear turn signal light up in one of the two Reunion movies, or was it the full brake light?
