    Hello
    I'm in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I picked up this Charger a little over a year ago with 71,000 miles, pushed it home with my friend and son, entire undercarriage rotted from sitting, I spent three months on my back in the garage putting in new metal from the front seats and back, 14 pieces in all i believe.
    I used all Goodmark metal which all seemed to fit well and resemble factory, except one pan drop off by sherman that appeared to be cut with hand shears.
    I did this a little different, painting panels first, than re shooting welded areas and recoating.
    Hoping to use this forum for research and part finding.
    Thanks

          Sweet lookin 500! Great job saving it from a slow rusty death. What a great bonus to have the build sheet. What are the options it came with?

          Great car. Welcome from your neighbor in NY.
          That was a lot of work!
          Put up a more complete history in the members projects and restoration forum.

          Howdy from Oregon. My Dad bought a 70 500 new. When he passed I restored it, enjoyed it for 20 years and sold it. Big mistake but that is what divorce dose. I know where it is at and am first one the list when the current owner wants to sell. Hurry up before I go to Mopar Heaven.
