Since the TR6060 has a fixed flange (not a slip yoke) I ordered a Magnum conversion kit. This makes the transmission crossmember much easier. Transmission crossmember is in place

I sourced the clutch/brake pedals and master cylinder from a 2010 Challenger SRT8. The pedals had to be straightened and shortened but they will work well.

Front frame rails are reinforced by a bar that runs from the cowl to the front frame rails; the bar also ties into the top of the shock tower. I don't like these types of reinforcements to be in the engine bay. A plate was welded in at each end for the bar to be welded to.

I'm going with 2010 Challenger SRT8 front seats so the floor pan profile needed to change. In the first picture, you can see the humps that needed to be removed in order to get the seats to sit lower in the car. The seat motors interfered with the humps and ig pedestals would have been built, the seats would sit too high.

[Linked Image]

The center of the pans was cut out and a new plate welded in...

Also, the column is now in place...

Panels and gaps are getting dialed in starting with rebuilding the left door hinges first. Then a relief cut was made along the bottom of the quarter to pull the quarter in at the bottom. Once the door and lower quarter were set, the forward edge of the quarter was adjusted to create an even gap between the door and quarter.

The left door had some rust in the corners...which has now been repaired. Also, the AMD rocker was a little too short; you can see it as you follow the door's leading edge gap down to the rocker. It's now been fixed.

I may get some static on this post, but the marker lights have been deleted. The wheel lips were also trimmed.

A cut was made along the bottom right quarter panel so the quarter panel could be pulled in match the door profile.

Tedious work, but it really pays off when those panels all fit perfectly.

Agreed!



Next up...fine tuning on the rear valance and valance corners. They always fit terriby.

A pie cut was used to straighten the upper line on the valance.

A pie cut was also made on the quarter just forward of the corner. After...

So because you pie cut the quarter you were not able to weld the valance corner along the flange right?

So where is the valance corner plug welded?
just along the top and at the bottom?

Your work looks great!
