I can just post a pick of my Duster cuz the whole car was hacked!I cut out-no actually kicked out a lot of the 8 pt roll bar b/c the welds were so bad.I have redone all the brake lines as they were peiced everywhere and will have to completely rewire and plumb everything.I cannot believe this car passed tech even though it was last raced proabably 10 years ago.I won`t even go into the so-called bodywork or other stupid stuff they did.

By the way Jeff, did you ever settle on a name for that Duster of yours?

Thanks,

If you have more Mopars in your future, chances are you'll end up getting one.

What I'd really like to do is to catch one of these hackers in action. I wouldn't know whether to cry, grimmace or laugh if I did.

I remember when I was 14 - we used part of an old toaser to repair my 65 Galaxie's fender....good times

Dad is still a hack on body work. I really hope I'm better than that now!

I'm a hack and have hacked. Nothing too wild with license plates though. I have been able to weld since I took a 5th grade summer school class. I also found one thing out. No matter how well you do it now, there are others out there that will say that you did a HACK job. This is why I do my stuff myself. I wasn't happy paying other hacks to not do it my way.

The reason I got so many new panels for my car is that I did not want to contend with any hack jobs.  With the new panels I can put it back the way it should be from the factory along with getting rid of the rust problems I have.  I also want to strenghten it some also to make it even better.  Gordon
