Hey guys, after a month or so of back and forth..... This thing came home with me. The previous owner bailed on the resto.

This thing has the fender tag, no motor or trans. It's lightly equipped, but r6 red with a white painted top and stripe. This guy was going in a very different direction....ie wheel tubs and trunk patch. I'm gonna fix all that, so stay tuned!

Interesting car.

Are you taking the frame connectors and tubs out?

Debating that???? The tubs are done nicely, but I personally don't like them.... I am currently removing all the narrowed spring hanger mods. tsk

Oh she's coming back to life killer.... just when and with what power plant? Seriously debated putting my 472 hemi in the bee and stroking a 383 for the Challenger..... as my wife says can't leave well enough alone! Lmao

My wife says the same about me. She has a 14 Challenger rt and I just can't wait for the warranty to expire. Projects take me twice as long, because I am constantly changing something. Lol.

To put inner and outer wheel houses can I install those with taking just the trunk floor out? Surely they can be replaced without cutting quarters???? TIA
I'm also gonna replace rear floor and trunk extensions to eliminate these wheel tubs installed. So I'm wanting to know how to attack this so to speak.....

I'm pretty sure you can do it without cutting the quarters, depending on how they did the tubs. Progress looks good.

Next is tackling the connectors..... then body work. Tub removal, still needing to know if it's possible to install the trunk and wheel houses without cutting the quarters out????

Well it's been a bit since I've added anything.... The Bee is in the body shop getting metal work so....
I landed a B Body Dana for the car. It was a "ready to bolt in" special.... yeah boy! It was nice and clean on the outside... I'll just leave it at that! I tore it down and changed the ratio from 3.54 to 4.10(should be good with the Passon 5 speed). So, now it's back good as new and ready to finally "bolt in"!!! I'll add some shots of my two year old helping button it up, later!
