      Thanks, but I still have the fun job of adjusting everything!





      Now with the rear wheels on I could finish up the rear brake cooling ducts. I had made the air intakes and modified the Torque boxes before painting the bottom of the car 2+ years ago. But I did not have the rear installed at that time so I could fit the wheels to make the disk brake plates until this weekend.

      Are you going to black or clear anodize the alum parts?

      Type 3 hard anodizing would look great.

      Thanks, I am happy with how it worked out Iím sure the front will take a little bit more engineering with all the additional movement.

      The plan is to paint them black to match the car and make them disappear.

      Black anodizing would be an option but I think I will just paint them.
      Thanks

      I suppose you will clearcoat and buff also? I was wondering,was this the original goal or did you get into the "I can do that better" syndrome? Not being critical, just wondering if this was your original plan. I've seen several high zoot chargers but I like that you are keeping the original appearance. It's obvious to me that a great deal of thought has gone into this. I respect that.

      For the most part I have stuck with the plan of keeping the car looking all original both on the interior and the exterior. I actually started on the rear brake coolers back in 2016, see attached picture which was before the car was painted.
      Thanks

      Very unique way of fabricating your brake duct inlets! Great job!

      I fabricated the front caliper cooling vent this weekend. Had a hard time finding a piece of 2 inch OD aluminum tubing until I got into my son’s golf bag and found his golf ball picker-upper tube. Cut off about 3” and put the cap back on. He will never know that holds two less balls;-)
      Thanks

      I received the 2nd version of my custom 3D printed fender tag from Dan at http://www.nextgendesignsnc.com/ . We made a few changes in the font size, letters in the alphabet and spacing. Hope to paint it black and install it on the inner fender soon. Dan is great to work with, and I’m very happy with the tag!
      Thanks
      Pat

      I see you used "CAD" again. What's the reason for the alphabet on the id tag?

      Chrysler use those letters with numbers below to designate what options the dealer or buyer ordered. Looking at the original tag second line under the lower case alphabet first two numbers are a6= Center console and b4= Bucket seats.
      Thanks!

      Rear brake coolers painted and installed. Still working on a few ideas for the air intake screen.
      Thanks

      I'm sure you know that the smaller the mesh, the more restrictive the air flow is. That looks like a good choice.

      Pat, hands down one of the most incredible builds that I have seen in ages. When I get the email notification I canít wait to see what youíve done. Each and every time itís more impressive then the last post.

      I hate saying it but when the car is complete I am going to miss the updates.

      Thank you sir! There are a lot of impressive builds on this site and just to be considered in the same breath as many of them is an honor! This car is getting close to completion and there will be another car most likely an old woody wagon for my wife, unless I find my high school 66 GTO;-)

      ......."considered in the same breath"? No Sir. Not even close.
      While I've not seen "all" the builds here, I do believe you've set the bar of "awesome", and "meticulous", at its highest level to say the very least.
      Next to you, would be the guy with the '68 Volvo p1800, and maybe third the guy sticking a modern Audi into a 70 year old Ford truck.

      The Volvo P 1800 is my favorite build on this site, that is a very cool car!
      Thank you!
