    I got the Drip rail moldings back on with no damage. Oh that was fun. And it adds some chrome back to the Car. :)

      Finally ditched the cloudy and delaminating windshield glass and installed some 1/4” Margard Lexan with a new gasket, working on fabricating some mounting brackets for the braces atm. Dropped another 15 lbs, (300 lbs removed so far) and now it’s under 3100 lbs! :lol:

        Removed the stock water pump, and remade one of the brackets that holds my Contour fans to the radiator. Now it's as close as possible and buys me a precious 1/4" more room to the WP pulley ;) The fans had to come out to change the water pump anyway.

        Fedex didn't bring the new Flowkooler pump until just a few minutes ago. It can wait until tomorrow... but it looks like a well-made piece. For $118 it ought to!

        Edit: couldn't wait, so went to the garage and put the pump, pulley and belt on. The bolt sealer needs to cure before I put the coolant back in - and anyway I have to carefully wrestle the fans back in and get them bolted up.

          Nothing today, but at last night's cruise-in, this showed up out of the blue!
          68 Roadrunner, 426, bench seat with column shifter.

            Got stranded Saturday with flooding issues. Gas boiling. Only about half hour before the gas evaporated and I was back on the road. Took care of it today. Cut the fuel pump outlet steel line and flipped it so it points up now. Put the fuel filter in behind the alternator and ran a new fuel line to the carb. Not much compared to what others are doing but little bit here and there. Also in the midst of figuring it out, I realized I put the needle in backwards when I rebuilt the carb. Stupid mistake but that’s how I learn. Haha.

              Scariest thing I ever see under a hood of a car is a clear plastic fuel filter. Yikes. I just cringe. :eek:

                  July 4th I was out cruising and another car crossed centerline and almost hit me head on. I swerved to avoid colliding and as I counter steered to correct the car came around on me at about 40mph. I locked the brakes and slid into a mailbox stand made of railroad ties. Got the passenger door, quarter, deck lid, rear bumper and rocker. Damn near a total. Driver was under influence, no insurance and suspended license. I went to jail for assault and was not convicted but the driver will never forget me!

                    Started a little experiment this morning. I've never checked what kind of gas milage I get with the Dart. Really want to check it now with the 5.9 and the overdrive 42RH.
                    So filled it up this morning and plan on driving it to work all week, then I'll fill it up again and check the MPG. To work and back home is 40 miles, and mostly highway so I'll be using the OD a lot.
                    I'll post results at the end of the week.

                      Installed my Hood Scoop. Way too many hours to get to this point in the build. But it was worth it.

                        Why is that? Unsafe or aesthetics?

                        Unsafe as hell. Some people like the look. That's ok. But the Factory never ran them. Their is a reason.

                        Hmm... I’ll look into that. Don’t really care about the look. That’s what was on there when I bought it so I just replaced it. Now moved it. When I upgrade to a small block it’ll be glass. But thanks for the heads up

                          I don’t like the glass either. I prefer either a metal canister or inline screen filter. The concern is something breaking the filter and fuel being pumped into a hot engine bay. Not a put down just trying to explain the concern. Cool car no mater what filter!

                            So today, I get the Barracuda on the tow dolly and take to shop for headliner install.
                            No problems, my 74 truck pulled no problem.

                            Here is interesting part...I get to shop, guy says : That looks like my aunts old car:!
                            I asked him her name and he said Bessie Panter, the lady named on certicard as original owner of car.
                            He said she didn't drive it much, and then when she passed her daughter took ownership and she didn't drive it much either.
                            So I believe the 67,000 on the odometer.

                            IMG_3178.JPG IMG_3179.JPG IMG_3180.JPG

                            I should have it back in a week or so.

                                    Peering up from the proverbial rabbit hole, I finally plugged in my battery in my build. No sparks, no drama. And if course, nothing works. 5 weeks of custom wiring this thing to my own design and nothing works.
                                    Oops, forgot to turn on the master power switch! Now let's try...success! No current draw when all switches off. And things that can be turned on actually work! Hooray!! Will still have to finish front end lights/wiring once the front end is back on the car. But that is after the engine/trans go in.
                                    Now to change out the fuel cell and fuel lines. Don't trust them as car has been sitting for about 8 years. THEN we get to start the engine/trans install.
                                    I really like the Haywire Drag Panel and soft braided wiring loom I'm using. Can hardly see it in the trunk. Easy on the hands to work with too.
                                    I've owned the car now for 20200915_230740.jpg 20200915_230751.jpg 11 months and no rumble yet....408 is still patiently waiting.

                                      just one question, if your car is a demon, why does it have a valiant emblem as a battery hold down?
