Ok I just got done mini-tubbing my duster. A few people had asked for more pictures, one thing led to another, and I ended up making a 28 page powerpoint "how to" guide. I never intended on doing anything like this, so I didn't really have all of the pictures I needed. I had to sketch some of it.

Anyway. . . take a look. I'll add the spring relocate to it later, I just ran out of time. (and honestly after making 28 pages of mini-tub, I was just plain sick of working on it!!! hahaha)

It's about 7 MB so it will take a little while to down load, but I think it's worth it for anyone who's thinking about doing it.

Let me know what you guys think!

Thats cool and honestly I don't see why it has to be limited to just A Bodies!
That could pretty much be applied to any car. ~Mike~

Thanks for taking the time to help others. My son has been starting to drop hints about doing his 72 duster. This will make the project much easier. Thanks again.

Only one beer can that happened to show up in the pics. . .not only one beer can for the total project!!!

Thanks for the replies, I hope that this does help any of you thinking about doing it!

I wish I would have taken just a few more pictures, then you guys wouldn't have to decipher my crappy sketches, and handwritting?

Guess I didn't get any of those artistic gene's passed down from my grandfather huh? (who by the way was the stylist for the '63 Dodge (rear half) '64 plymouth (whole car) !)
