I haven't posted here for a few years. My Duster that I've owned since 2006 and has been in one form of restoration or another since 2014 is finally almost complete. It's a driver/autocross/road race/drag race car designed primarily to drive and track. The suspension is stock based torsion bars/leaf springs with lots of upgrades from Bergman Autocraft. I assembled everything, wired and plumbed it in my little garage over the last 22 months after finally getting it painted in Moscow Mills, MO. I'm having a new 6-bow headliner installed which is one of the few items I didn't want to tackle.


Enkei PF01 18x9 35mm+ offset on custom modified hubs with Michelin Super Sport 255/40
14.25" SRT Challenger rotors with GEN III Viper 4-piston Brembo's
Hydroboost/Mopar master cylinder
Borgeson steering box, remote reservoir & cooler
Hellwig 55917 swaybar, stock boxed LCAs, SPC fully adjustable UCAs, 1.02" torsion bars, Bilstein shocks, Delrin bushings all from Peter Bergman

Alignment specs using the SPC tools:
Caster 5°
Camber -1.25
Toe 1/16" in

66/67 B-Body 8.75, w/rebuilt Mopar clutch type Suregrip, 3.73s all new internals from DrDiff
Enkei PR01 18x9.5 45mm+ offset with Michelin Super Sport 285/35 DrDiff rear disc brakes

6.1 Hemi w/Frank Racing "SCUUD" camshaft & CNC ported heads
EFI Source Megasquirt Goldbox
Passion 5-speed

Interior mostly stock with Classic Auto Air A/C

Very nice package. I'm doing similar with my 65 Coronet.

Question on the window trim. did you paint or wrap the stainless pieces?
.
.Never mind. In the first picture it looks like your trim was blacked out. In the engine bay picture I see it is still shiny.
