Started on the trans tunnel.
Looks like you slid tubing down inside the T-Bar x member? Looks great!
A little more work on the trans tunnel. Opened up the driveshaft area a tad.
Yup. It slid right in. 2" X 1" Rectangular tubing. Thanks!
Yes, yes! I like the crossmember, new trans hump and front heat exchanger. Who makes that exchanger?
I ordered my Mopar crate motor from Better Built Performance. The heat exchanger (included in the crate) came boxed in Whipple logo'd packaging. Can't say for sure if it's a Whipple exchanger though.
Cool, thanks! It looks "beefy" to me. I don't see it available on their website but there are other nice ones out there too. Keep up the progress and the pics. Hopefully, it will be my turn to make progress this summer. ('69 Cuda w/Hellcrate; getting excited!)
I'm going to try and use the stock consol with the Hellcat shifter.
I needed to modify the trans X member for exhaust clearance.
A little grinding and smoothing.
With all of the cutting and modifying I thought it would need some bracing.
This build is killer!!!
Good thinking. Nice idea! Rarely see anyone triangulate under the chassis on Mopars. Likin' it!
I painted the entire underneath of the car. A couple of pics of the fender wells.
Like the crossmember mod., I didnt think of it , I piecut a couple of 3 1/2 pieces of exhpipe and swiveled around it -----------
I'm at the first picture in my.........whatever you want to call it........restoration?. What did you use to remove the residue from the undercoating?
Map gas torch, putty knife and aggressive wire brush on a grinder.
That's pretty thick! I feel your pain; I let the mower deck go a little too long between cl eanings!
I was able to use a heat gun and putty knife to get the majority of the undercoating off. I just have the residue to deal with now. I used some kerosene and some VM&P naptha and both seem to remove the residue pretty well. I really didnt want to go with the wire brush due to the dust and no one stocking dust masks right now.
The bumpers on these cars are ill fitted with huge gaps. I cut 5/16" off of each side.
More rear bumper work. Welded up and re-hung. 1/4" gap now. Also move it inward 3/4".
