    It's part of a 73 car collection in SD, auctioning off by VanDerBrink. Most of the vehicles are serious projects or parts cars at best. But there are two cool Mopars that are in decent shape, a 61 Dodge Phoenix and a 61 Plymouth Fury convertible. Auction ends Friday evening.

    The stripe is on!

    I used the Blitz Black (rattle can) on my dashboard. It's a great looking black and you did a really nice job. Should look great on the hood too.

    Headers hitting idler arm

    Same thing was happening on my Dart; idler arm was sawing a hole in the one header tube. I removed the header assembly and cut out the hole. Cut a piece of metal tubing in half (may have been 1" diameter but I don't remember) and welded it in with the concave side facing out. Ground down the...

    Installed the harness this morning. High quality components, great instructions. Wish I'd done this sooner. Thanks Rob.

    Another satisfied customer. The quality of the wiring, connectors, relays is top shelf. Install takes about 2 hours. Added a pair of Nighthawk Halogens I got off of eBay. I'm much better prepared for Bob's Big Boy cruise night at Spring Fling.

    Clutch fan vs derale single 2400cfm fan

    7" will be just fine. I'm running the 7" with clutch, shroud, weather stripping on front and rear underside of the hood on both the Dart and Coronet. Dart has a Cold Case rad, Coronet a Glen Ray.
