To my eye the tailpanel looked the same as the original Argent headlight paint. Here are a few pictures of the original argent paint on my headlight buckets

Brad.......... I have an SE tail trim panel on my '70 Challenger in SE trim, and the same astrotone paint on my grill and headlight bezels, is the same type paint on my SE finish panel in back. Just thought I'd mention it. From the look of your pics it's the same paint.    Thanks,   Al

For the 1972 Rallye, does anyone know if the black organosol paint covers the entire tail panel to the top and to the trunk lip or does it end on the edge of the tail panel face? The posted picture of the unrestored original is a great reference, I just canít see where the organosol ends. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    NOS Panel.      HEAVY texture. Comparable to 60-80 grit sand paper. Hope colors can be seen.

I'm sure the factory masked each 72 Challenger tail panel the same way.  The only thing that changed was the paint used.  The black should go up into the trunk about an inch just like an argent tail panel.

The tail light housings themselves would have come from a separate vender already painted the correct colors.  They probably even had the tail light lenses already installed.(one less thing they had to do at the factory)

1970 RT/SE trim panel. I thought the they would use the same paint on the Rallye wheel center caps but they aren't close. The center caps are much rougher and lighter color.
