    Thanks for the support and advice guys. I have lots of disassembly pictures I just didn't post it because I didn't think they'd be interesting to anybody

    thanks it's the only way I can visualize what I want to build. I wouldn't want to build it and then look at it and say nope, that's not what I wanted LOL

    I'm in the final stages of restoring a Coronet 500; going to end up looking like an R/T. Not a clone or tribute, just my version. As others have posted, build it the way you want, it will turn out awesome. Looking forward to following your progress.
    BTW, prior to my project I hadn't turned a wrench on a Mopar in 20+ years. The members on this site are AWESOME! Wouldn't have started nor finished my project without them. You're in good hands...

    I agree totally. I don't think I would be able to do it without the people on here to lend advice.

      Haven't worked on the car for a few days because I've been busy. I got the piece welded in to the frame. holes drilled in stock location and nut welded in. Now just some grinding and blasting and it's ready to be installed 20160607_174207.jpg

      image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Great post! So good to see another 69 Bee restoration. I have almost exactly the same process ahead of me. Mine is yellow and black. All numbers matching.

        Finally some progress. We blasted most of the car today to expose all its hidden secrets. I'm going to finish the epoxy primer tomorrow and get some up close pics to post. Here it is after blasting.

          Made some headway in the last couple days. 1 wheel tub patched and 1 frame rail tacked into place.

                  2nd frame rail is attached. now to clean up some stuff with the grinder, a little more welding then SPI primer and then ready to put the trunk pan in. once that is done I'm hoping the car has enough structure to put the differential back in so that we can roll it back up to my other shop and finish media blasting. does anyone have an opinion as to whether it will be wise to put the rear end back in and the car back on its Wheels without a tail panel?

                  All the weight on the springs from the differential is more forward. So the most weight is near the front shackles were your bracing is intact. That is why we do not need traction bars! lol....

                  Your issue is not when it is on the ground it is getting it to the ground. So install it in a way that puts the rear end in without stressing the body by its weight. Basically, jack it from the pumpkin....

                  Or you can get the caster setup from US car tool. For your restoration they would be ideal...If you were closer I would let you borrow mine...
