Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

The dash looks great Torchie. Sometimes you just have to walk away from those issues...and then when you try again you solve it.

Thanks all.
One of the reasons that I needed to get the car in the middle of the shop.
The body has been sitting crooked on the frame.
I took care of that.
The rocker bottom is dead level right now at 9".
Once I get some weight in the back I'm sure it will drop to the 8-1/2" like the mock up.
I really don't look at custom based on how high or low they are.( Chops or stance.) Just wether or not it all works together and looks right.
To me, this one looks right.
The last 2 pics shows how different things can appear based on the angle you see them from.
The first pic of the rear tire is with me holding the camera and standing up.
The second pic is more of a down low straight on shot.
Keep on keeping on....

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Hopefully soon snopro. Iíve got it right where it needs to be. Both front to back and side to side.
I want to get in at least 2 cross pieces and on pads so I can bolt it down.
The issue I have is that I have to be really careful with bending over right now as my BP is running on the low side . There will be a lot of bending over when working in the floor.
Makes things kind of interesting to say the least. 😳🤪

Thanks crate.👍
Picked up this intake/carb today.
It came off a 360.
Now......
Iím beginning to think that my 318 has 360 heads/ intake/ cam in it.
Based in how it sounded when I heard it run as well as the fact that it has a factory 4 barrel intake which was not available for this year engine.
Iíve read itís a common 318 upgrade.
Any thoughts from you mopar gurus out there?
