I've got the new roof skin headed there along with every piece of metal that amd sells for the rear of the car. The top half of the car will be rust free in several months. I'll update next when it goes to the shop on Friday.

I also put the stock hood back on. Its really bright in comparison to the outside of the car. No need for a 6 pack hood with the Hemi.

It’s getting the metal work started now. It can only get better from here.

Nothing great has happened in this time. Some rust was cut off and the first fit of the roof is happening.

I'm shopping for wheels and tires, but I'll just buy the wheel measuring tool first and measure it from there.

I want to do a 275/40-18 front and a 295/40-18 rear, and I'm sure this can be done without much work or measuring.

It's the 285/35 front and 3xx rear that make me have to work a little more. I don't want to buy tires til the car is done with body work. I don't need them losing life at a body shop.

I've also picked up the Dr Diff 3.23 ratio for a Dana 60. It would be cheaper to build the dana than to get a loaded 8.75" center section.

Progress. The body work is finally starting. I’m also sourcing a new set of a pillars from here.


Let’s see how long I can ride this wave.

Slowly but surely. A pillars are in, drip rails and a new roof skin. Currently looking for new C pillar Patch panels. USCT mini tub kit is going in next for the future wider wheels.
