68 Charger RT

Average User Rating:
5/5,
  • Making progress. Hope to be painted this summer and start bolting the ole girl back together, lots of stuff ready to go....
    Painting it factory (SS1) Sun Fire Yellow. Since this is real XS number matching Charger I'm going to be gentle with the mods. Mostly bolt on goodies that any Mopar purest wouldn't have a duck fit about when I eventually sell the car. Had to replace the typical areas on these Chargers, trunk floor and extensions, quarters and lower rear valance as well as the front aprons. Floor was remarkably solid only requiring a couple of small patches. Frame rails are solid as well as the torsion bar cross member. Pretty much cancer free now.

    Pressure checked my fuel system yesterday, held 92 psi overnight.
    Held better than my compressor. Should be good to go

    I’m doing a virtually identical build on my ‘70 Coronet. I’m also running my fuel hardlines to an angle iron bulkhead, then stainless flex lines like you did. My question is: have you run your exhaust yet, and did you have much clearance between your lines and the tailpipe?

      I did a general test fit with the shocks and the TTI exhaust, had no issues. Are you using pre bent lines or are you fabricating custom lines? The pre bent (got mine from Fine Lines) should place the lines approximately in the same location as the factory lines.

      Yup, pre bent by Fine Lines.

    Cool filler neck from Vans. Fits okay, had to tweak it a bit but all in all 70 bucks ain’t bad for a brand spanking new filler neck

    Well done. Do you have a approximate finish date, or just, when it's done, it's done. Hope you do a video of the finished Charger. Outstanding work on an outstanding car. Can't wait to see it finished. :thumbsup:

      You and me both. Once we get paroled from paint prison the car will go together pretty quick.

    Installed the gas tank for mockup so I can get final measurements for the PTFE flex lines...
