No wonder that the wife is giving me a hard time about this..
Finally done with the steering hub and the electric stuff for the horn button. Made a slipring out of aluminium and an insulator out of delrin plastic. Similar to the oem on the original steering wheel. Should work fine.
Grille is in. Mounted some rubber bumpers. Rolled it out just for a motivation boost, it worked. Super excited to finish this now! Finally got the window regulator roller kit. Ordered it from Van's auto 13th of march(couldn't find it with any Swedish dealer). They shipped it a couple of days later, USPS did their part and it arrived in Sweden within a week. Well, go home Swedish "PostNord", you're drunk. It took them a freakin month to deliver the package after it arrived in Sweden!?
Looking sharp! Paint really looks good too!
Thank's! Pictures can be deceiving! Good from far but far from good..
Looks nice. Van's should have wrapped it in a Burkha. It would have arrived sooner without any customs issues.
That looks incredible, great looking Charger
Got Lucky, the steering wheel matches up pretty well with the Challenger seats colour on both leather and stitching. Got the horn button to work eventually after a couple of tries. The spring loaded contact in the column was the culprit. Had a visit from the upholstery guy who will help me with the interior roof, door pads and door cards. Starting next weekend with that so I need to finish the dash and wiring coming week.
Forgot to order the steering column retainer kit.. so I milled some out of delrin plastic.
Thats very handy to be able to make some of your pieces. Nice!
New version of the 3D-printed headlight rings received.
It's about time they put that 3D printing to a GOOD cause!! Heart valves, other life saving medical device manufacturing capabilities that couldn't be done without 3D printing....all trivial compared to being able to 3D print NLA parts!! Now THAT is a major breakthrough and a VICTORY for mankind!!
Well, it fit.. the other three can be printed!
Wow, I can remeber reading that article. I also started my love for Chargers early!
Tried some tires with more rubber in the rear. 295/25r20 vs 295/35r20. The larger wheels were 15mm wider than the previous even though they should have the same width! Routing wires and connecting stuff.. trial fitted the driver seat to get a feel for how to fabricate the new shifter to make it fit the modern Challenger console.
Maybe I've fucked this up now.. the rear wheel has always looked a bit off. The driver side looked like it was to far towards the rear of the car. And it became obvious with the larger tires. Fender to tire was 40mm on driver side and 25mm on passenger side. Loosened up the axle and I could shove it slightly forward but not enough. So I did the only thing I could think of, drilled new holes in the driver side hanger.. Bolted it all up and now I have equal measurements on both sides. Rolled the front fender lipa to get more clearance. And new tires on in the front. Raised the front slightly again with the adjusters.
I wouldn't drill a hanger for fender clearance, yikes! Your wheel base would be different side to side. Maybe I'm not getting what you did?
I'm suspecting that the hanger location is slightly off on the driver side. I''ll try and do some more measurements to make sure the rear axle is straight against the body. When I rolled it out a couple of weeks ago to wash of the dust I noticed a strange noise in the rear when rolling it back in. Like one of the rear wheels was slipping/sliding on the floor. "Shaff, shaff, shaff..." And it was quite hard to push. After doing this I could push it easy with one hand. This tells me something was off. But I agree, I don't like having a drilled hanger and will make new ones when I've figured out what was wrong.
Get it on an alignment rack, as I bet your rear axle is "dog tracking" now..
