    Following. Any more pictures of how you converted the tail?
    Would you be interested in selling the tail lights from the 67?

    I love your build and will follow it. 426, wow. Im planning to fab in a Shaker on my 68 340 Notch. Big challenge. So far ive found OEM style set up at shakerhood.com $2k...or a fiberglass version from Danko I think he quoted $880. Where did you get your Shaker/ parts? Already I can see my firewall and wiper motor are likely intrusions. Keep up the great job!

    Some updates on the Hemi shaker hood. Bodywork is just about done. Lots of sanding to go P1010455.JPG P1010454.JPG P1010453.JPG P1010452.JPG

        No shaker or Hemi but here is some inspiration to keep you going. Looks like you and I have somewhat of the same idea!!! Next week motor goes in.

        KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK!!

            Damn, that's gonna be a badass ride! Love the updated color combo, your original idea was too much black IMO, and yes, black really is a bitch to keep clean.

                Backend with some B5 paint on it and the engine compartment. Note the clearancing for a hemi on the right inner fender. I'll be installing a modified wiper system, inside, under the dash.

                          I'm thinking that Ma Mopar should be taking notes here for their new Dodge Dart of the future. Sweet stuff for sure!

                            Mine has come along also. Here’s something to keep you motivated!!! Unfortunately when I fired my motor up I had issues. Pulled the motor Monday and had to tear it down completely as I found an oil passage was clogged and no oil to crank, cam brgs and drivers side lifters and rockers. OUCH

                              That really sucks, sorry to hear. Car looks really good at least.
