Nice job. That needle scaller did a very nice job. I used a Harbor Freight pneumatic scraper while wearing ear muffs.

The stock wheel tub shape/profile drives me crazy so these are getting modified heavily.
This is the passenger side tub. A widening strip was welded in place.


The slope of the outside tub leaves a lot of tire space on the table. On a stock Charger, the tires look silly because they are set back so far away from the wheel lip. Everything inside the green tape line will be cut out. And when you look from the front/back you will see a yellow card that is displaying the new profile/slope of the outer tub.

I wandered over to Matt's shop to take some pics of the car. In the last two months, the AMD quarter panels arrived are just hanging on the car in these pics. Matt also removed the original K member/front suspension and installed the Reilly Alterktion front suspension. Also, my 70 Barracuda photobombed this picture (it's in the background).

I parted a wrecked 1970 Challenger last year that was equipped with this aftermarket 9" rearend wit Baer discs and a 4.10 limited slip diff. Since I have it already, I'm going to use it. I ordered a Reilly Motorsports 4 link-you can see the bar in the trunk.

The RMS 4 link bar has been welded in. The Ford 9" rearend will be narrowed to fit my wheels and tires.

Also, I changed direction on the transmission. I had a TR6060 laying around in my shop from when I parted out a late model Challenger SRT8 so I'm going to use it. So the tunnel had to be enlarged...

Nice work, please keep posting photos of your progress. It's a really interesting project that you are doing there. When I retire and will live in my summer property in Spain I want start a similar project just to keep myself busy.
