    /6 removed, need to clean engine bay and do some painting. Have a couple of rust holes to fix first. Going to rebuild steering linkage and changeover to front disc brakes at this point in build. Going to Nats friday, hoping to score a 8 3/4 housing and rear valance.

      Did manage to pick up a 8 3/4 housing, no rear valance. Great show, tons of cars and plenty of action on drag strip. Grandson said was highlight of summer.

      Some progress, cleaned and painted engine compartment, suspension rebuilt and new steering linkage. New brake lines up front, still need to run to rear. Bought a 8/3/4 housing but am having troubles, see drive train forum. Slow but sure.

        Some progress, suspension and brakes done, installed engine and trans, /6 adapters worked fine, installed new fuel tank with pump in tank and ran new fuel line and finally cleaned and painted trunk. Still waiting on the guy to finish 8 3/4 so i can move car in garage. Slow but steady.

          What tank is that? with the internal pump?
          I'm doing a Magnum swap on my 72 Charger and have been considering my fuel delivery options. Thanks!

          Tanks inc with internal pump. Very nice tank. Did get 8 3/4 installed. Just as a side note if somebody in northern ky or southern ohio needs any rear end work done the guy who fixed mine seemed very good. He sets up gears and shortens rear also. PM me if you need info.
