More Prep work & epoxy


Wheel Tub prep and layout - easier to do without suspension in the way.

Front wheel wells- opening will be moved up 1" and forward 2".

Mockup using a stock (beat up) fender

WOW you are doing a bunch of work.  Looking good so far.   :2thumbs:

I am a little confused on one thing, why do you have to cut and move the front fenders?

Wow, that's a TON of work!!! :faint:  I'm not really a fan of the lowered look on these cars, but that thing is going to be wicked when it's finished!!! :grinyes:  I love the idea for twin-turbos as I plan on putting some together for my 340 (probably going stroker with it). :2thumbs:  Too bad we don't have an option to subscribe to threads here 'cause I'd love to see every update when they're available.

Oh, and you should check out (Conv340) another member's 'Cuda project.  He's done some extensive work on getting his channeled and on airbags.  These two cars side-by-side when completed would look very sinister!!!

Here's the link to his progress:

NO, his photos are no longer on the database for the forum! :faint: :'(

Thanks for the link...  too bad the photo's don't work.

The stock unibody frame supports, etc. are long gone so no body drop/body channel per say.  Our plan will make more sense once I post pictures of the chassis as it takes shape.

Wow, that is neat.  Never seen the Corvette stuff under a Mopar, just doesn't seem right for some reason!!   ;)

Can I see pictures of what your are doing for the frame?

Is it going to be a perimeter frame like the Corvettes?  Is it going to be integrated in the old Challenger unibody?

Is it going to run transverse leafs or are you going with coil overs?

I thought the torque tube/rear mounted transmission would have improved weight distribution for handling purposes, did it just not fit?

Very different, for sure!!   8)
