Hello RHR forum people. For anyone who hadn't seen my Dodge around Tim's workshop over the last 9 months here's the main forum for its progress:

http://www.moparuk.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=20931&start=0

If you can't be bothered to read that, the short story goes that I personally imported it as a wedding car last June (08). It was a static display wedding car by the way. After the honeymoon Tim started work on her, which involved a ot of fabrication at the rear. For a 60s Mopar monocoqure it was pretty solid but that still meant new boot floor, rear lower quarters, various roof pillar and roof repairs, and the whole rear window area. After rebuilding the original numbers matching big block 383, including new clutch and all, she's now MoTd and on the road.

What's left to do? Interior door cards, carpet, headliner and some rubbing down and trim fitting on the outside. To be honest, I'm just enjoying driving it. Tim also waxoyled it so she will never rot through again. We hope.


















I'll leave TIm to upload the 100s of resto shots, but rest assured the results are absolutely spot on. Another piece of muscle saved Wink

I think you might be right about the giant... and when he's bored he comes down and draws rude pics in the dust on the old beetles windows Smile

Not been on here for ages as forgot username! Needless to say the Charger has been used a fair amount over the last 12 months or so. Plans this winter are:

Get one front overrider (tooth) nickel plated.
Remove heater matix and get reconditioned and reconnected.
Rolling road carb tune.
Fit the new window felts/scrapers
Stick down vinyl roof edges a bit better
Fit a operational fag lighter (for Tom Tom!)
Remove and send off dash gauges for reconditioning
