I skinned the charger and found a little rust around the back window but the front window channel looks great!












I also pulled the motor and Trans, as I sold it. With the motor in the car and still running I put it on Craigslist with a video and the 2nd called bought it! The 1st called was pissed.
Thanks
Pat

who are you sending your vent window parts off to for rechroming?

The past three cars I used Paul's Chrome And this will be the 4th car! Not cheap but I'm not sure you'll find better chrome work and pot metal repair work anywhere else.

Went to Chrysler Carlisle and picked up a AMD trunk floor and US Car Tool chassis stiffening kit and mini tub kit and a few other things. It was hot but a great day!

Removed the glue and green paint from the fuel fill pipe and sanded the lead coating with 400- 600 and 800 then clear coated it. Note use a respirator and glove when sanding lead.

With the car still on all 4 I started fitting the US car tool frame connectors and after a little grinding they fit pretty well.








I also started on the only part of the frame that was rusted. The right side of the cross member needed a small section cut out and replaced so I found a donor frame rail to graft in the frame.












I will weld up after I finish cleaning the undercoat off.
Thanks
Pat

I have been trying to restore the parts as I remove them instead of at the end of the project. The left side vent box is the last item I did and it cleaned up nicely. Here are a few before and after pictures.
Thanks!
Pat
















Where did you get the rivets for the vent box? I am thinking about tinning and leading the galvanized parts on a heater box. Is that what you did with these pieces?

Thanks

Evod said the wheel should ship late next week and sent a picture of one of the center sections.
Thanks

sweet! Would love to see the same thing done with the 1970 dodge full wheel cover.

I installed the US Car Tool core support today and fit great with just a little grinding. I order it without the holes as I like the original look. Next to the subframe connectors and torque boxes it is one the best stiffener you can add to a Mopar! I ground down and radiuses the weld so it would look original. You could jack the car up from the core support now!
Thanks
Pat

Hmmm.... wouldn't it be nice if Ma-Mopar (Fiat) made available the new 707 HP supercharged Hemi as a crate motor with wiring/electronics for resto mods?

That would be a Bullitt for sure!

I received a few more pictures of my front wheels. The red and black paint in the center cap should make them pop!
Thanks!
Pat

Received the wheels Friday and they exceeded my expectations. I will paint the red and black details in the center cap soon and hope to get the tires mounted next week.
Thanks

So, are those centers going to be reproduced? I bet that will be another way to get the haters against big wheels to join the dark side. The Year One Rallye and Magnum wheels worked a little, but these things just look awesome.

As it was a Dodge only hub cap for just a few years I'm not sure there will be enough demand for this wheel on the market to justify putting it in production. Selfishly I hope not ;-)
Thanks

Remove the Dodge logo off the center and you won't have a Dodge only wheel but a good looking, aftermarket 5-spoke wheel.
