    Hi gang...new at the Mopar thing. I have a '71 Challenger on the operating table in my garage. Came with a bone stock 318 and the 9xx tranny...have a hopped 340 and 727 ready to go. In the midst of body stripping and POR 15 treatment. Rust is manageable.

    I need a drivers side front fender, front and rear bumpers, and a rear dual exhaust valence to complete the R/T clone transformation....interior is the side project...buckets are from other cars and center console....

    looking to media blast the body and finish with a lime paint job, black stripes, and blacked out front and rear grills....any guidance/ advice is welcome! Thanks - Todd J

    I have redone the entire front suspension and disc brake conversion...rear is a Ford 9" with 4.11...came that way.
    Need a rear right frame rail replacement from the gas tank - back. All other structural issues are patches.....
