    I might take this out for a spin tomorrow, what do you all think?

    Thanks! Waterpump in! Took a full 10 minutes on the seized stud with propane torch to pipe wrench it out, It was the one that holds the power steering pump adjuster and I did not want it snapped off in the timing chain housing. Today was first round of mud on the splice areas and its looking...

    Yup the corners of the "C" pillar are definitely leaded with a large gash in between that may have had body fill at some point. The dry Colorado weather and years in a yard probably degraded any of the fill, or there was none since it got a vinyl treatment. Got the inside back together ( ish) ...

    Hmmm, I'm not an expert and what you are saying makes more sense, but this one for sure had lead and no filler of any kind. Maybe a "Friday" car that the lead pot people wanted to finish off a batch on hand. I'll get a close up shot of this. Thanks for the clarification

    Getting our '76 Daytona back on the road.

    Great start to a cool driver, 400's deliver just fine with free flowing exhaust and a properly functioning Thermoquad. Don't see many of these , they are an under rated touring car that is really enjoyable to drive.

    We had to buy a whole donor car to find a usable roof section. There are no more in any junkyards near us. If the car was a vinyl roof car the "C" pillar is a lead seamed joint with plenty of "play" in fitment ( I've always imagined some Mopar line worker with a bazooka gun full of seam sealer...

    Thanks, it just did not seem right to give up on a 64K rust free car that they will never build again. Fighting rust is very time consuming, so even though this was a massive undertaking, its actually easier than massaging in rusted areas. We will do body work next and prep the roof for vinyl...

    Ari has been super busy with work but we did do the roof splice to get a windshield in. A loader had brutally lifted the car sometime in the past at the yard. It distorted the roof so badly there was no way to really fix it w/o a splice. Luckily a parts car came our way so problem solved. Jason...

    "Them Dukes, them Dukes..."

    Well its running and driving nicely. next step is sourcing a windshield and title work ( Colorado makes it rough). Also need to locate the headlight relay switch, got nothing right now. It will be a daily driver by fall.

    Yes, the movie was good fun. Like the series, it is what it is. Critics miss the point, I mean nobody watches the Smurfs and expects a purity test....

    "Them Dukes, them Dukes..."

    Made progress yesterday, the cross over pipe was badly crushed so we PBG'ed a dual exhaust with parts on hand and 2 glass packs. Much better! Also had to replace the master as the old one was dumping into the booster. Its up in the air so I'll grease the front end and check the differential. the...

    1971 satellite kinda sorta

    I have rust free sections from a 73-74 2 door. Not totally sure they are the same. Happy to do cuts and ship. Pics on request and lots of feedback in the VW world ( I'm fairly new to this forum).

    "Them Dukes, them Dukes..."

    I've also noticed that most 4 door Fury's in the show have the perforated "onion skin" type hub caps, as the episodes go on they resorted to poverty type dog dish caps. Did they run out of patrol cars? Also noticing they like to use AMC Matadors in some of the jumps rather than the B body 4...

    "Them Dukes, them Dukes..."

    I've always been curious about the engines used in the cars on the show , especially the General. The 4 doors used in Hazard seem to be mostly cars with custom trim, but no vinyl roof. The flipped cars show dual exhaust/dual cats so I assume 440 patrol cars. Some are single exhaust. The General...

    "Them Dukes, them Dukes..."

    Well made some progress! I patched up the floor "Dalton style" ( any Pole Barn Garage fans?), using a stainless steel trash can, aluminum flashing and a section of roof from a VW Bus. I had a bit of plum crazy paint left over to hide the horror. The seat got new foam and a fine seat cover ( head...

    What can cause drone APART FROM exhaust?

    Check transmission mount. I've had cheap, aftermarket ones fail to absorb the vibration and drone like crazy. I figured it out AFTER replacing all the above. I put in a used OE trans mount and problem stopped

    1975 up Hood hinge slider blocks?

    The E body "short" sure looks correct.

    Yup those are the ones. My 77 Gran Fury also uses them
