So the guy doing my sheetmetal JUST got started..it only took 13 months...Anyway, the plan is a 6.1 liter, 6 speed, AterKtion with a pro touring inspiration. The ride height/stance you see in the picture is the goal. It feels good to finally see some progress!!

Cool. Good to hear you are still going at it and that you haven't let it beat you. I will be doing the same in about a years time.. Mine is sitting in a storage facility. I didn't learn with the 1st one,12+ years ago. I figured I'd put myself through it again..



When you decide to quit, THAT is the moment when you would've succeeded..

The car is finally making some progress. The last picture was a mock up to find the right ride height. After that, the tail panel came back off. I decided to go with custom frame rails. from the engine firewall to the the rear. The frame rails will be moved in a few inches for more tire space and the rails will be moved up into the car for clearance issues. Instead of doing coil overs in the rear, I have decided on bagging the rear for ease of adjustment and loading issues. Here are some pics of the new frame rails being fit.

5K mile 6.1L I picked up. It's dirty and has been sitting in the garage for a couple years.

Pics of the rear frame rails and floor pan over the rails. The hump will be fitted later.

Floor pan from the left. Once the pans are welded in the tunnel will be cut/raised to adjust for the drive line angle.

Floor pan from the right. Used Sherman main floor pans-all other sheetmetal is AMD. Just trimming for frame rails

Trunk floor pan-will appear mostly stock in the trunk although the frame rails were moved in about 3 inches for some tasteful rear tubs that don't look real square and racecar-ish.

Here is my parts car-a 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8. It doesn't look that bad, but it was in a head on collision on highway 70 that bent the front frame rails to the firewall and buckled the floor. I am using the engine, 6 speed transmission, and pedals in the Barracuda. I also used this Challenger to get my black 2010 Challenger SRT8 back on the road (I bought it as a theft recovery missing interior, NAV unit, HID headlights, intake manifold, front fascia, grille, radiator, condensor, and trunk subwoofer. I sold off the shell and remaining parts to recoup some of my money.
