I have been doing a Youtube series on the Challenger for those who want to follow. Anyway, I was at the paint shop today, and we are getting close to done with that part of the project. I wish the video  showed how nice the paint looks in person.

Thanks, the painter just sent another picture from after I left his shop. He has the doors on now, it is really shaping up.

I guess an update is due, the last year has been hard time and money wise. That said, I snapped a few pictures of things that I have been working on.

First a pic of the day it came out of the paint shop

Second is the short block, which is a 5.9 Magnum based 408 stroker

Third is the Go Wing that I installed

Forth is the new 1964-67 B body 8 3/4 housing , with new springs, and mock up for the calipers for the rear disk brakes

Fifth is just some undercoating I have done so far.

Sixth is the the plate that I made to get rid of the trunk torsion rods, and convert to modern gas strut rods.

The last one is the motor mounts that I modified with a counter sunk bolt to keep it from ripping apart.

So there you have it for now, just a bunch of little projects.

I just spotted this thread and thought I'd check it out. Projects are always fun.  8)
Unfortunately I can't see the pictures, but I watched your videos and really enjoyed them. Love the car, love the paint job. It's gonna be fabulous. :thumbsup:
Hope you're doing well, all the best for you :thumbsup:
I stopped to pick up a hitchhiker.
Turns out he was just telling me that he approved of my driving.
