   My paint job is still slowly lumbering along. Finished painting the door jambs, inner fenders, hinges, ect. Then I will rehang the doors and fenders and get ready to spray the outside next.

First I'd like to thank everyone who posted topics relative to this swap. Since I don't have any mechanical training I couldn't have got this far without your help.

It was a busy weekend test fitting parts, rounding up some help that wouldn't empty the beer fridge before we were done and finally putting it in without a scratch.



the crew??




installed




done for the day




Man that car and engine look great! Looks like you are very close to some cool cruising time!

I did a pretty good first wash of my nicer 71 Challenger grill. I have the paint from doing the tailpanel so I thought it was time to get started on the grill. Will post pics of the results later when I actually have some results lol.

As a fan of Vanishing Point and a Challenger owner, I think that would be the coolest road trip.

You having to sell your car? I sure hope things start to turn around in this crappy economy. All I keep hearing is we have turned the corner, we are on the way back up and all the while the idiots keep reporting good news, unemployment keeps going up.   :dupe:

Probably be selling both my major toys, 'Cuda and Pantera in order to get funds together for a buisnes.
And I just swung a sweet deal on a double space storage unit for them too.
