Well, it pains me, but I don't think it will be on the road this year.  Everything but the motor will be done by end may.  But I have another 10k to spend on the motor, and I likely won't have that money till the winter.  Sigh

And this year is mopar feature at plunketts!  So frustrating

Wow! Just caught up on this thread and you're doing a great job! Who's doing your engine work, may I ask? 10k plus parts sounds pretty rich and I know some guys who do it for a living (while running a pro mod and some super stock cars as well) who may be able to save you some dough. Let me know via a PM and we'll chat. Ian   :cheers:

Making some more progress, pics below.  Seat belts go in next then building my dash.  Just heard my gauges are done being restored by auto instruments, can't wait to see them.  The upholstery work on the seats was done by the same guy who did my headliner, C1 upholstery in Lambeth Ontario, fantastic job.














Got my new AMD windshield and back glass today...

Looks great!     :ylsuper:

Seats and console might get in the way of the dash install, unless you have alot of help. I wish I was this far on mine....   :worshippy

Thanks guys, yeah I got a little ahead of myself in a few areas like seats, console and kick panels, but couldn't help myself :-) wanted to see how it all looked.  The console isn't screwed down yet :-O
