YEA !!!

an underside of the hood pic would be interesting..

my question is how did it ship and how was it packaged??

and how long between ordering it and receiving it - or at least knowing it was ready to ship ??

(I want the charger front end , hood , back bumper and the daytona dash)
Sorry it took so long. here's a picture of the hood underneath.

Re: 1986 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z T3 DOHC Tuned at FwdPerformance

hey thanks !!

for weight savings I can suggest googleing "formula steering wheel"

I have no idea what you'll find as I say that but I do have a "formula" steering wheel I got from a friend , who scavenged it .. somewhere back in time

it weighs nothing ..almost
looks like a 70's chrome three hole spoke with foam rim with an average diameter close to our cars

I think it just might be for something like a formula 3000 race car

bolts on with any typical 70's three bolt steering wheel adapter horn switch cover combo you can find

weighs what feels like a pound .. maybe two , max

add the adapter horn bits and it would probably be double that at 3-4

hopefully some rectangular headlight stickers isn't below their pay grade lol:

clear headlight covers and some chrome tape to draw the chrome light bezel edge line found on the non turbo z cars and no one would even notice the entire front end if you don't want 'em to

fake the lamps
fake the trim too

Oh trust me, that's already been gutted as well. my car weighs 1950 without me in it
