      I sourced the clutch/brake pedals and master cylinder from a 2010 Challenger SRT8. The pedals had to be straightened and shortened but they will work well.

          Front frame rails are reinforced by a bar that runs from the cowl to the front frame rails; the bar also ties into the top of the shock tower. I don't like these types of reinforcements to be in the engine bay. A plate was welded in at each end for the bar to be welded to.

            Look at that chicken shit welds! Lol! Just busting your chops. I like the way those add rigidity to the front end!

            Just an observation, are you going to drill a couple holes in that plate for water drainage?

            Yes. There will be some drain holes in that plate. Thanks!

              I'm going with 2010 Challenger SRT8 front seats so the floor pan profile needed to change. In the first picture, you can see the humps that needed to be removed in order to get the seats to sit lower in the car. The seat motors interfered with the humps and ig pedestals would have been built, the seats would sit too high.

              5Q1lYibh.jpg

              The center of the pans was cut out and a new plate welded in...

              Also, the column is now in place...

                    Good work. I am betting if you hadn't saved it that it would still be sitting in that yard.

                    Time to get back on this Charger. Doors are coming off first to rebuild the door hinges....

                      Panels and gaps are getting dialed in starting with rebuilding the left door hinges first. Then a relief cut was made along the bottom of the quarter to pull the quarter in at the bottom. Once the door and lower quarter were set, the forward edge of the quarter was adjusted to create an even gap between the door and quarter.

                        The left door had some rust in the corners...which has now been repaired. Also, the AMD rocker was a little too short; you can see it as you follow the door's leading edge gap down to the rocker. It's now been fixed.
