So the car has now been moved to it's new bay!

Here's an under-hood shot. (Keeping a cover over the engine for now, the valve covers are getting some custom paint treatment right now)

AWESOME is an understatement. I too like the realistic style flames. It is amazing how guys can do that {stencils or not}. I'm surprised you say you won't do the install that way again. I thought it was the easiest way when I had my Barracuda. Don't haveta worry about the paint job either.

You are doing a GREAT job with this ride. I can't wait to see it finished either..Keep at it..

Took lots of bending, smacking, more bending, and testing, bending, testing again, etc. and I finally got the keisler patch panel spotted in place. I sprayed it with weld through primer, but actually painted the bottom of the panel with some black paint so I wouldn't have to go back in a touch it up.. made life much easier

And finally got some paint on it, I'll go back over it tomorrow on top and bottom with seam sealer to finish it off.

I also painted and installed the factory-missing (cause it didn't have dual exhaust from the factory) left side exhaust hanger for the left muffler. That was an easy one, the dimples for the holes were already in the floor!

Haven't gotten much done in the last few days, except working on getting my gas tank painted and ready to install. The inside of it is super clean. Under the tank pad I found a mopar sticker dated 1996, so I guess that answered the question if the tank was original or not. And I'm glad it was an OEM tank and not an aftermarket replacement.

I also pulled out the shifter, and just had to bolt it in place, so I can dream of

Me too man!

The driveshaft showed up yesterday (from keisler). I'm gonna pull the 3rd member tomorrow and put in a new seal, and get that buttoned up, and put the driveshaft in, and start mocking the exhaust up (got a cool stainless steel exhaust!)

Been a little while since I posted any updates. I've got the gas tank cleaned, painted, and installed (with new stainless steel straps). Also removed the 3rd member for cleaning and inspecting and reinstalled with a new gasket

I got the rear brake lines cut and flanged for the rear wilwood discs. I have the flex lines installed and the brake calipers painted and ready, I'm going to pull out the old inner axle seals today and install new ones and then button up the rear brakes/axles between today and tomorrow here at work
