Thanks for taking time to post the pictures...looks like the pieces fit pretty well.
At least you know the structure is sound again
No problem! I'm trying to document this whole thing so I had plenty of pictures. I should probably start a thread, I've got a lot of work to do. In addition to the rear rails I've replaced a decent amount of the front floors and a chunk of the firewall, plus a conversion from an A/C firewall to a non-A/C firewall, and the hotchkis frame connectors this all started with. It's getting full quarters next, and I have to pull the roof skin to repair some of the roof structure. The whole thing is moving into my shop because winter is coming and I'm tired of welding in the wind. I've got to shuffle some cars first. This wasn't supposed to go this deep, but I went past the point of return. I knew my Challenger wasn't perfect when I bought it, and over the last 8 years and 60k miles of daily driving I've learned that it was actually pretty rough, even though it was functional. But as I started into it I've realized it was much worse than I thought. More rust than I expected, and I expected more than a little. The bodywork basically qualifies it as a bondo sculpture, its bad. But I digress.
Yup, everything fit well. Kind of surprisingly well actually, definitely some of the better replacement parts I've used. It's definitely solid. Maybe not the prettiest work, but it's solid and structurally sound, which it wasn't before. I'm kind of a jack of all trades, master of none kind of guy. I do everything on my cars except the machine work on the engines. I'm actually pretty good with a TIG welder, but MIG has never been my thing. And MIG on sheet metal, well, it's not going to fall apart but it's not my best work. But it's a non-numbers '72 that started life with a 318, so it's not a big money car. Solid driver/corner carver is all
I'm looking for.
