      I put new quarters and rockers on it in the past, also has a fresh 360 and 727 I built before and never saw any action...it's running now...gonna strip it down and paint it and put it back on the road.

        So it's been a while since I posted anything...when I got it home all the things had done to the car years ago had to be done over since it sat for so long... 20160808_165032.jpg

            The guy I bought back from threw in a pair of fenders in primer that looked better than the ones on.....until you take the primer off...i always say I would rather fix dents than rust but....this is not what I had in mind...

                I built the motor and trans years ago and it maybe had 2 miles on it. It came out to get a good looking over and cleaned back up..the blue in the engine compartment I painted years ago also, it's going to be this color when finished.

                    This is the vision for the car...my stripe is silver not white and I will be running rally wheels or blue cop car wheels.

                        Haven't checked in lately, I got really lazy over winter...recently have gotten back on the Duster. Changed the distributor, and oil pump drive as it was bent?? ( not sure how that happened). Put new rotors, pads, calipers, hoses, and an idle arm on.

                          The back few inches of the rear frame rails are kinda crusty so, I bought some pieces from a member here and have spent some time cleaning them up and getting ready to install them over the next week.
