Trying Instagram for a pic hosting sight. Let's see if this works:

edit 2/2/19: Instagram changed format and no longer allows hot linking. In process of fixing all my old posts before adding new pics! wink

Nice ride!
Sadly my garage will never be that clutter free.

The parts are stacking up! Does anyone need a K-member and disc brakes?

I am planning on going Gerst too. Where do you live? I am hanging on to my challenger K member and brakes for a project that I don't yet have.

Queen Creek. I was considering hanging on to the old stuff too for a future project, but the new k-members are so nice, light, and easy.

Nice! Well I am a hoarder so I will find a reason to hang on to my old stuff.

Removed the wire harness, master cylinder, throttle linkeage, shifter cable, etc... Some A-hole painted the engine compartment with that rubberized rattle can black paint... Oh, wait a minute! That was 16yr old me back in the 90's!

Made it through the first few layers of crap on the inner finders, but have yet to touch the firewall. At this point I think a full tube chassis would be easier! eek

So far the wire wheels work better for the sludge and rattle can rubberized paint. The stipper wheel does good with the paint. Not sure what the happy medium is between a smoothed show quality engine bay and something that I won't mind too much if I chip/scuff when working on the car late at night at the track.

I don't know what's with this GERST guy? I ordered my front end and he said it was about ~6 weeks before it would be delivered. 6-weeks later, the damn thing showed up on my door step! Doesn't he know that if he's going to survive in the mopar world, he needs to push the ETA at least twice and add in a couple recalls....

I ran out of wire on my MIG and unfortunately it cause my spool to bind and release... bird $hit welds on the plates connecting the front kickers to the firewall. Thanks to GERST my project is waiting on me and not parts! What the heck is wrong with this guy? cool

I looked at the Gerst stuff at the ICH Swap Meet. Very nice setup indeed.

Prepping the engine compartment is taking me forever! I'm starting to think that removing the inner fenders would have been better.

I used a cheap sand blaster to get the nooks and crannies on my bee
and it turned out nice with much less work.

Removing the inner fenders looks terrible. Glad you kept them!
