I'm not a huge fan of early chargers but you sir have a very good looking one!
Sanded on the grill and bezels some more... I think im about ready to wet sand, then polish and paint... still debating between gloss and flat black... also debating if I should use my krylon silver on the aluminum or leave it raw... I also did t sand the outer edges, I figured I may be able to just polish most of it except for the spots with gouges... thats part of why I kind of want to paint everything with the krylon, but then that dang hood trim doesn't match... Ooh I also messed with my lights... they all work... except for blinkers. So I will switch out my blinker relay and see if that works... ps yes these are some pretty plug and play LED headlights...
Thanks I am having a blast with it.
Oh I bet, and am slightly jealous as it looks like you don't have to fix anything on it to drive it
Keep it as close to original colors as you can. A few battle scars does not take away the quality of the part. People understand. Make up a killer story as to how they get there. Now you have something to talk about at the car shows.
I've never been to a car show since getting this car... have you kept any battle scars on your car? Lol...
There are plenty of little jobs to keep me busy, but nothing to stop me from driving it. I want to tear into the engine but not until I'm sure I won't be able to drive it for the winter.
Yes I have a couple. But I'm not pointing them out just yet.
By seeing all the work you post in here I'm always amazed how perfect everything looks and goes together.
Oh no... thats a rabbit hole... ask me how I know ...lol.
Thank you. I do a lot of reading shop manuals. FABO is a wealth of information. I always have 1 project 3 months out I work on too. Currently working on interior. My main goal. But in the background I have the Transmission parts to finish up. So in the spring when I actually need them I'm not in panic mode trying to find stuff. I did my front end 2 yrs ago. But when the day comes? Bam I'm ready.
So bright... We will be able to see at night!
Looks like your missing your 3/4 deep well socket? Lol
this is going way better than I expected. It’s kinda floating into place!
Haha no its somewhere in my box, I've been lazy pitting things back in the correct spots lol.
First it's sockets. Then it moves up to losing your beer. And before you know it. You've misplaced your motor. Lol
At the end I could pull those last two straps to center the hood too. I would use more substantial hooks in the ceiling next time. They were fine for the weight straight down but not for pulling hard at an angle. I hate solo hood installation!
After beginning this project with my Dart in January of 2019, I began by ripping out the slant six and trans for a complete rebuild and overhaul of the drivetrain. All was going to go well until I was told the block was bad and not worth repairing. Even after obtaining a second slant six block, that was also deemed bad. And so the journey began with taking the 360 out from under the work bench and getting that completely rebuilt. Can't be that hard to swap a slant, right? Well it only took me about a year or more to obtain all the parts and slowly put it together. Full time work and full time school really slowed me down, and still is. But finally, earlier this week I was able to make everything stop leaking, run 85-90% good, and take it for a spin!! It sure feels good to drive my Dart again. I can't wait for the weather to improve.
I'm converting my NOS Powershot plate to adjustable jets... basically need two jet holder fittings, two jets (.065N/.052F tune recommended by the late Monte Smith), and two hardlines. For whatever reason, Summit shipped one single jet in a FedEx box which arrived Sunday, the two jet holders and the other jet in a UPS box, and finally the nitrous hardline in a third UPS envelope that came today. The final piece, the fuel hardline, says estimated date of arrival is 12/28! Except when you look on Summit's website under that part number, it says ships 12/3 if ordered today. So I have no idea when it's coming... I'm still tuning the 950 anyhow. So I put the nitrous side fitting and hardline on. It's pretty inaccessible under the back side of the carb especially with the PCV nipple I plumbed into the spacer almost touching it. The fuel side will be quick & easy... IF the line ever arrives!
That gives you time to polish everything else up until it does. Oh maybe I'm getting off the topic. Never mind. Lol
Polishing and chroming makes the car go faster... by lightening your wallet Once I get it running fast enough, then maybe I will pretty up a few things. I confess that I didn't even polish the A833
well today, i just cussed at it dont know if i mentioned this or not, but ive been waiting about a week for a special socket to get the ghetto wheels of my plow truck so i can slap some new front brake pads on it it finally showed up today, so after i got the kids from school, i started working on it getting it all off was rather painless, started on the driver side take the caliper off, slap new pads on there, back off the piston, move the sliders, move the sliders, move the...nope they aint moving so now im waiting to hear of autozone can scrounge me up two new caliper mount brackets so i can finish it tomorrow at least i was smart enough to park the truck out of the way, in case this would happen (not my first rodeo)
Oh, and you know what, ima slap a new caliper on aswell
