What I get to do this weekend is pack more stuff into my restoration room. The restored rallye cluster, new bezel, new Challenger specific door handles, body bolt kit and body bumper kit should all be here by the end of the week.   :woo:

Finally installed my 3/8" stainless steel fuel line from inlinetube. Fit great, no problems, pretty easy installation really. Found a section of the old fuel line that was pretty much crimped off :eek4:. Also installed a fuel pressure gauge because I had previously thought the fuel pump was headed south. Turns out it was the line! 4.5 psi at idle using the old line :o, up to 6 psi at idle with the new one. Still have to drive it and put it under load to be sure, since wide open uphill was really the only time I had issues with it, but I think this was definitely the issue.  :grinyes:

Well, I was chasing parts a good portion of the day....    :hyper:  But, I was still able to get the bottom end buttoned up.  I still have tomorrow, so I am going to try and get the front steering linkage hooked back up. I might also attempt that  :swear:    :stomp:     :pullinghair:    :banghead:  header hook-up.  If I get that conquered, I will install the rocker gear and set the valves.  That only leaves the intake and carb installation next weekend.  I hope it goes as planned....    :bigshades:

Getting my steering box stripped of powder coating. Back to the original cast look. Flash casting smoothed for a cleaner look. Then send it out to Steer N Gear for a firm feel upgrade and re-build.

Man Brett does that look good.   :ylsuper: :bananasmi

I toyed around with the idea of going over and getting mine off the stands and started today.  Supposed to be low 50's.   :clueless:

Went to the body shop today and went over some of the details before the paint goes on. I was given a list of items to take care of and supplies needed.
Should be seeing some color next week. I'm spending the rest of the day chasing another project.
