I dig that unsilenced air cleaner! Looks great! Now she can breathe :thumbsup:

Thank you ! I have had that laying around for about 8 years from from back when I was experimenting with different air cleaners for hood clearance on my corvette. I always liked the way it looked though and thought it would be ideal on this car. It has a super deep base so to make it work I had to get a 1.5" spacer between it and the carburetor
Its a 360, don't believe everything you see

I am hoping it will run a lot better too :) . Did you see a performance difference when you did yours?

I didn't notice any big performance improvement but I'm sure it had to of helped--and it sounds much better!
Wanted to button things up in the engine compartment and found these nice routing brackets by R&M Specialties. I think it turned out pretty nice.

Here’s some pictures of the progress on the road runner. Things will probably slow down for a while as I recently lost my job. But I will continue with the restoration as best as possible. Got some more yellow paint on and replaced the 22in. Radiator support with one for a 26 in radiator. Also primed the engine compartment and drivers side quarter panel with Eastwood,s roll on epoxy primer. It works pretty good. It’s a lot thinner than I expected . Thanks for looking . Have a great 4 th of July

What size and brand of carb you running? 383 right?
68Moparmaniac
68Moparmaniac
It's a 440 magnum that the Charger was born with. The carb is a Holley 750 that I'm just using to break in the engine, when It goes back in the car it will be with the Edelbrock ProFlo multi port EFI setup.

Getting ready to fire up the 440 for the first time, check for oil leaks and hopefully break in the cam without any drama...

Nice Work
Got the radiator, oil cooler and PS cooler plumbed.
A few AC hoses left.
Still gotta do the fuel line and brake lines.
Heater hoses still have a way to go.

I’m tired of fittings and hoses, etc.

Gonna switch to paint for awhile. I have the layout figured, so time to blow it all apart.

great work on the charger and cant wait to see it finished. Did you say what color your going with?
It almost took me all winter to get through the list of things I planned to fix up. At one point we had two weeks of nice weather and the car was still on jackstands :'( but eventually everything was fixed. I replaced all fluids and filters, greased the steering mechanism, door hood, and trunk lid hinges, installed my oil pressure, water temp and volt sensors and gauges, hooked up reverse lights, repacked wheel bearings.
The time has come to start driving again. I was invited and joined my first car meet. Turns out there are quite some people in my city owning a nice american classic.
I also drove a wedding which resulted in me getting some real nice pictures of the car. As promised, some pictures of the backroads here in the Netherlands!
However, I do plan on installing all new wheel bearings in the front and getting some new rear tires (for safety since they are 10y old) before taking her on a large trip.

So my goal was to add some beauty and remove some wieght from the 'Doba-- so far here are the results.

Edelbrock aluminum intake -24 ibs.
440 Source aluminum water pump housing -10 lbs.
XS Power lithium battery -30 lbs.
Sanden A/C compressor -20 lbs.
______________________________________________
Total wieght removed -84 lbs.

Time to adjust the torsion bars! She is riding high--doing the Carolina squat :rofl:

I didn't do the timing chain yet. I decided I would like to change the cam when I do that and just don't have time right now--gotta get her back on the road!

No doubt, that’s a great idea . Perfect time for cam swap.
