I plan on running TTI headers and a low profile oil pan to keep everything snugged up under the car. My last one had 195- 70's up front and hookers. It seemed to work O.K.:



 I'll know more as I move along.  :cheers:


   That car looks alot like this one minus the SE badge.

Oh wow, that car is still on ebay? I've seen that one while searching for Challengers starting August last year, looks like he's been relisting it ever since. Would be interesting to graph the high bid amount every time his auction ended, you could get kind of a mopar index. :bigsmile:

I am absolutely convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you could transform a pile of metal shavings into an entire car! WoW! Exceptional work! And you make it look like one of those tv shows where everything in neat and tidy in a 1/2 hour time slot. lol. Mind boggeling! Very nice work. :ylsuper:  (by the way, is that Frank Zappa driving the Challenger in the picture?)  :clueless:  :dunno:

Good work. I will defiantly be following this till the end.
Are you going to have the stance of the car just like it is mocked up there? It looks killer like that.

  :misbehaving: Yes, I have some updates to post. I've been lazy and not downloading from my camera in awhile. I'll get right on it ASAP.

Seeing some of these projects that you and other's working their magic on makes me optimistic. Luckily for me I was able to start with pretty much no rust which works out with my skill level. You are doing an amazing job on your car.

Wow! :eek2:

I am so impressed with your project, I just stumbled upon this thread and got totally hooked.  You've really done some amazing stuff, that nearly all of us could only dream of.  Thats going to be a really wonderful car when you finish... unbelievable!

I think at some point you asked about what color to paint it.  I think petty blue is good, but B5 blue is a really awesome color that certainly never goes out of style.   :2cents:

I really can't wait to see more.  I'm really getting enthused again to start working on my project.... maybe even update my project thread... if I can find it.
