This is what I've done this morning
Put 74 rallyes on Cuda, Drives so much better than the 25 year old rotten flat spotted POS I pulled off, and looks better too!
New 15's on Challenger, I need to outline the letters on the Challenger, Otherwise, perfection

Just got through doing the alternator to starter relay rewire thing, re-did the terminals at the alternator, and tightened the voltage regulator, now the volts are rock solid and no more headlight flicker :2thumbs:
Still need to get the ammeter out of the loop, but that can wait

I'm really gonna make an effort to get out to the garage tomorrow!! Supposed to be mid-40's here (ya heat wave LOL) Maybe get my wiper motor out, looks like the roads still have to much salt here to go for a ride but it will be good just to get started on a few things!  :working:  :2thumbs:

Finally got back to work on it today after almost two months off and brought in some professional help to guide me through a few areas. Got the trans linkages hooked up, finished the trany lines and filler tube. Modified the bell housing cover and installed the starter. The fuel system is in place and wired.Most of the underhood wiring is complete. Tomorrow drive shaft and speedo cable and reinstall the headers. We'll also try to finish mounting the computer and re&re the dash one more time.
Had a few beers time to call it a day :working:................. :cheers:

Well, Im stuck on the road working, but I did get over to the Indy swap meet and purchase some billet aluminum jet plates for the outboard carbs on my 6pk to re jet it for better performance.  Promax makes these plates

I brought it home out of storage for a little bit. Put some miles on it, tweak the carb some. I replaced the driver's side header gasket that was leaking. Isolated my blue pump better so it's not teeth chattering loud anymore, and fixed my trans mount issue.

I stripped the passenger door and fender today then primered them.
 
I'm estimating now that it might be about gallon and a half of primer to completely epoxy primer the whole car.

If the weather holds off I'm going to move it from my rental garage to my new(to me) house garage.  I had it running today after charging the battery, fired up without much fanfare, but the stink was unreal.  Made my eyes burn but my smile was :bigsmile:

Finished seam welding the rear frame rails, POR15 and seam sealer. Under coat next. Next, I need to go over Shelbydogg's rear axle post in the archives. If you haven't seen it, it's a good how-to for 8-3/4" rears.
