Hey Clown,

Are swapping out your side panel to fit a 26" radiator instead of 22" radiator aswell while you have it at this stage buddy. :2thumbs:

  1.I replaced some vacum lines on the original engine to see if would run any better.
  2. Laid out the Hemi wiring harness trying to decide where to put the computer (found some rust behind the kick panel)
  3. Took out the back seats and got the build sheet (not that it will mean anything), found the rear floors are great. Also picked up .37 (.29 cdn) in change.
  4. Ordered headers, mounts,oil blockoff plate and oil pan for the hemi.

I did get the T/A started up but it never moved. On the other hand I got the RR up and running and even went for a drive on Sunday. Could't do it on Saturday 'cause of the snow storm we got. This is our weather ,Sat snow and in the 30's. Sunday sunny and gorgious and in the high 60's.

I will be installing the original 26" radiator support once I am happy with the rail lineup and I get them welded into place.

Did the weld stud on my truck and then did some mud work.
The green primer area on the left was done some more and is better than what's showing.
Not quite finished but it looks better than those dents that were on it when I bought it.
Good practice for the cuda.

Front rails are in and decided to make sure things are gonna fit as they should,so I I did a mock up of the front sheetmetal.I will be setting in the front and rear suspension so I can set it back on all 4 tires and put the final welds into place.I know I am far from done but this is getting really exciting because it's starting to come together and it's starting to look like a 71 Cuda again :jumping:

i am grinding away at the welds in my new trunk floor and extensions and wishing i had some ear plugs.  when i was a teen i never cared about dusk masks or eye protection or ear protection or any of that sissy stuff.  these days i find myself having a greater respect for safety and comfort. 

i wasted a day looking at mopars yesterday so im gonna have to make up for it today. looks like my wifes no cooking butt is gonna be eating a tv dinner tonight :grinyes:

Nothing.  I havent had the time.  Maybe next weekend.  I sure wish it would warm up sometime soon.  We've only had like 5 days above 70* this year.    :stomp:

Daytona, I see a slight bow in the white T/A's hood but none at all on the purple one. How do you keep them from bowing from spring pressure? Oh and even if its not restored, My favorite is the vert in the corner  :bigsmile:
