That red wheel looks sweet in there.  I prefer the red over wood grain or black.
Where did you find the wheel? Reproduction?

hey hemiken, yeah i was thinking of a red bumble bee stripe but not sure. i may see if i can lay some kind of red material on there to see how it looks. the 572 is a crate engine i bought from roseville awesome bunch to deal with. yeah it kills me to still have it sitting on the crate but i will wait till i buy an alterkation,headers and trans so i can install it from underneath which will happen in the next couple of months, i am shooting to have the car done buy next summer.   thx bruce

thx everyone, grimmey71 im not in michigan but i can see it from my house, i live just south of sarnia ont. but i buy everything i can from jon and dave at roseville by far the best guy's i have ever delt with. plus i love to come over to michigan, detroit and the surounding area is quite unique and the food is awesome. the bars and restaurants we go to for lunch or whatever have the best hamburgers,fried chicken and sandwiches (to name a few) to be found. we will usually just head over for lunch ar supper cause we are lucky enough to be that close.   thx bruce

Hi Bruce,  :wave:

The second i saw your Challenger and noted it had a Red interior, i had visions of a Red bumblebee stripe across the bum of it, i think it would be stunning and compliment the car so much. Awesome looking combo, and i dig the 572 HEMI, that just looks so mean, nearly a shame to put a hood on the car with an engine like that. If you ever get bored with those 572 valve covers, i know a certain someone who would love a set :drool:
Look forward to some more pictures and updates as your advance in your build, Red interiors rule :2thumbs:

Hi Bruce,

No thread yet buddy. But i am in the plans of starting it before the end of the year in fact, so you will have to keep an eye out for them when i start the build. Just collecting parts for the moment, but the time is a closing on the start date. :2thumbs:

Hi Bruce, Run a short ground wire in the trunk area, but make sure you run ground wires from engine block the chassis or K-frame and as for the main power, i would run it inside the car along the edges with the sills under the carpet and make an access hole near the starter motor to exit out of, make sure you run a nice big power wire that will not drop voltage from the battery. :2thumbs:
