I posted to Body shop but thought some with an interest in a Pro-turing Gen III might miss.

Started fabricating pieces to my Hellcat Cuda. Got the stock Hellcat radiator, intercooler & AC Condenser mocked in. Also, a Hellcat Challenger Tunner for 6 speed Manual. Panel is for the hole left when I cut the stock shock towers out to make way for the Schwarts Chassis towers. Have gotten a 2016 Hellcat Dash to fit in. We test fitted and will worked. Show dash and more progress and I make.
I got Tim's Fabrications in Stagecoach, TX (Northwest of Houston) to do work on this part as I don't have a lift and my Tig welding isn't that great.

More updates to follow

I too used a factory radiator, couldn't fit the condenser because of all the other stuff occupying that area, will be interested to see how that turns out.
Seems crazy to pay $1000 for an aftermarket radiator when you can get a OEM solution for 1/4 the price.

What did you have trouble with. Was it hood latch?

I already mounted a trans cooler and overflow tank, but the real problem I see was the width. Your pic shows the dryer right up against the frame rail, and the connections on the driver's side will take something unique.
Headlight buckets need to be considered too.
Starting from scratch, you'll be able to overcome that with some creative metal fab.
I was looking for something to work with what I had.
