      It really has been fun. When I am tinkering on the car, I let the kids roam around in the backseat while they watch cartoons on the iPad

        I hope so, will be my first time doing this. Curious if it is best in the center near the trunk latch, or the very right rear corner.

        My six year old son LOVES getting yellow lights in the Barracuda, because then we get to launch when it turns green.

          front Center between the latches is best IMO. Central but behind the axle. Also it isn't in your way so you don't compromise and valuable trunk space.

          This location also require the shortest cables.

          Great idea, I like this idea a lot. I still use this car for all kinds of stuff. I had the trunk full of beer/meat/snacks recently on the way to a bbq

          So if you like this idea. Mount the box in such a way using threaded inserts, etc that allows you to rotate it to access the battery. I mounted the box to a piece of aluminum that has 4 legs under it.

            I'll try to grab one if I can get into my shop. We just had another snowstorm.

            I love it. It is pretty clunky, but it’s a nice clunky. Just imagine how a motorcycle clunks into gear when you shift it. Very similar. It shifted with ease at 7,000 today

              Car has been doing great. I am so pleased with this engine. I will gladly build another one should there be an opportunity. It really is just so absolutely damn fast, that I’m not sure I would want more, or be able to make more hook up on the street. Got the car prepped to weld in US Car Tool subframe connectors last night. I was surprised how easily the factory undercoating scrapes off after a little heat from heat gun. Less than 30min invested.

                Car is still rockin! I have been working ALOT, and have had no time to work on the car myself. So I broke down and swallowed my pride. I took it to my buddy to do a laundry list of things I had started.

                One night around midnight, about 30 min from home, my fuse panel decided to die and leave me with NO power to anything. It was a nightmare. First time the Duster has left me anywhere.

                I ordered a complete harness kit from American Autowire, and it is awesome! Uses modern fuses, and has a lot more circuits than the original panel. The subframe connectors are done, the carpet is in, the New Vintage gauges are in, the new tank from Tanks Inc. is in. I am using the tank with a fuel pump inside. It is really nice and has baffling around the pump. The Holley Stealth EFI is in and it works amazing. And lastly, the A/C is done. It has been 105+ here lately in South Texas, so we are going to take the car on a summer road trip very soon!

                I ordered a new Momo wood steering wheel and a Retro Sound Radio today. This project has really gotten out of hand :eek:

                    Very nice. Yesterday I ordered the EFI tank from Tanks Inc. for the Fitech setup on the Coronet. Their tech support is top notch.

                    It's incredible how well built the tank is.
