Here are a few more updated photos. The wheels are temp. The ones I want are actually the full chrome 68 Road wheels but they can’t be ordered until February. The tie wraps on the heater hoses are temp too.

Wish I would have seen this post sooner, you have a few incorrect items.
Alternator has a new style pulley on it and the pulley should be black like all other pulley's.
Looks like your using old strut rod bushings, I see cracking in the pictures and that is a No No.
You coil looks old, should be semi gloss black with Green Lettering and date code.
Coil bracket should be silver zinc.
The whole steering box should be painted Black but not the spline d shaft.
PCV valve and grommet engine color.
The vacuum fittings screwed into the intake and water pump housing including the temp. sender shouldn't be painted.
The oil pressure switch at rear of block looks used, should be yellow cad. plated.
Rear marker light Bezels should be stripe color (Black)
Upper shock bushings should have never been left in there during painting process.
Oval plastic plug on lower driver side of engine compartment shouldn't be painted either.
Distributor cap should be Tan not Black.
I saw the Pentastar still on passenger fender during priming, hopefully wasn't painted over with R6.
Ground-strap at rear of manifold painted with engine same as Neg. Battery cable.
Voltage regulator show have yellow print on it and date code.
The bracket at rear of engine that the #8 wire passes through needs to be spun upward. The round white plastic grommet that would snap that wire into it goes unpainted.
This is way I remember without going back through the past 11 pages.

RJS thanks for the items to work on. I have a few questions/comments.
Will replace alternator pulley...thanks for the heads up
Yes used the original strut rod bushing trying to preserve the bushings that have "Front" script on them. They seemed to be ok when we put the front end together but will consider replacing
The rear light bezels, are they painted black? I cut the stripe and stuffed it in the rear light body hole.
Yea the coil is original. It looked a little nasty when I pulled it off. I will repaint semi-gloss, or will consider a repro coil with the correct green lettering with date code.
Will remove paint from coil bracket...thanks...
Will correct PCV
Will look at the steering box.
Used the same oil sending unit. I have noticed it needs to be clean. It is gold dichromate now
The items that are screwed into the intake that are not supposed to be painted will be corrected...thank you
Upper shock bushings have been replaced.
Oval plug in the lower driver side needs to be stripped of paint....agree
Will replace D cap
New Pentastar installed in passenger fender
Rear ground strap is painted now
Voltage regulator was original, and had green paint on it before I painted it. I tried to preserve it but it was just too far gone. Actually had spray bomb over it. Took that off and that is when I saw the original paint and green font. Decided to go with the original in this condition for now.
Will correct the #8 plug wire support.

Thank you for the heads up on this stuff. First Mopar resto I have done. Keep the comments coming. Very helpful.

Lawrence

Yes rear bezel for reflector needs to be painted Black as stripe color. They would "X" cut the stripe and fold it in.
The regulator in 69 if very early would have red print on it. (mostly 68's used the red print) 69 used a yellow print.
Google these guys:
Frank Badalson
Bill Rolick
Bill Meerholz
ECS Automotive

They are the good places an OE type resto would need.
Also Mega is a great place for parts too.

This was my 69 Coronet R/T 440
Throttle spring was later changed to silver and V.Regulator to one with proper date code and Yellow script

Yep have bought from Frank, Rolik and ECS, but not Bill Meerholz. I got my exhaust, decals from Tom at ECS. bought a few fasteners from Frank, and lots of stuff from Bill Rolik.
