Nice project, i know where you are coming from with starts and stops. Mine just came home from 3 years at the welding stage. Waiting to get media blasted now and sealed before bodywork in the spring?

Did the media blaster vacuum/clean it up after they were done or did you?

Think leaf blower rotisserie and you will still have media fall out from time to time.

WOW!!! wish i had a project car like yours. The '68-'70 Charger R/Ts are the epitome of muscle cars (imho).

up...keep the updates coming.

jc


Full 1/4 panels were chosen in lieu of replacing the lower sections. The lowers were rusted/rotted pretty much from the front of the wheel openings to the rear of the panel. Also had some rust in the areas around the bottom of the rear window corners. With the improved quality of the newer replacment AMD full quarters we opted for this choice verus piecing all the new metal in these areas. We could have gone either way. However, I trust Vance's judgment on this as he is well recognized in the Mopar community as a top notch restorer.


Good call going with full 1/4s. I did the patch panel thing on the '68 Dart 20 years ago because full 1/4s were not available (except $$$$ NOS). It held up well, but have recently installed AMDs full 1/4s...so much nicer.
