cool, does it emit any odors?
Yes, nitric acid, sulphuric acid etc, they emot some but I use lids on the containers.
Finally finished all welding underneath. Just have to place and weld nuts for the fuel and brake Line brackets.
Nice work Jarven. Question on the dash - where did you get the lettering for the woodgrain pieces ?
Sweet build man, coming along nicely!
Found it on this website, but since I'm in Europe I looked for it here instead of the US. 3mm White arial lettering stickers. https://www.maritime-models.co.uk/acatalog/standard-model-lettering.html
Nice work and a nice build - sorry I missed this until now! I added the US Car Tool stiffening to my 70 Road Runner. I also added a sector support kit. This is a bearing that connects to the K-member and holds the bottom of the steering below the Pittman arm. That, along with all new suspension bushings & parts and I am impressed with how well my car handles and how nice it is to drive. Bottom line is the work you are doing to stiffen the chassis is well worth the effort. You will be glad you did!
Thank's! Yeah I remember seeing that support before but haven't thought about doing it. Maybe I should, do you have pictures or info?
This home plating kit is like a drug!
Cut in a diagonal tube through the subframe connector for the parking brake cable. Looks neat.
Here is one minor thing I did to my K-member - added a reinforcing plate.

I work on Mercedes cars a lot and I think their brake and fuel line brackets are nice so I decided to use them on the Charger! Cheap and sturdy.. I will route everything on the sidewall of the subframe connector. Also had to raise the bracket for the parking brake since it was in the way of where I wanted the fuel and brake lines.
Thank's for that info, will really consider that upgrade to the k-member!
Shit, turned the car the right way and thought I could get going on to cleaning up the engine bay and close off some holes that I won't need anymore. Found this crap.. the frame rail had a big crack in it below a "bondo-repair" from the old damage.. fml..
I'm lucky to have kind coworkers helping a colleague in distress. I made some templates, one guy made a cad-drawing and another started up the water jet cutter. And now I have reinforcement plates all around both frame rails. I'm not worried about having the car look modified since it is a pro-touring car so I'm fine with the looks.
Nice reinforcement plates. Are you going to fully weld them in (besides the spot welds)?
Yes, that was the plan, well, my brother will, he just doesn't know it yet. He is a licensed welder and much better at it than me!
