Alright..same excuse as always..but ive been very busy with work..but i got some stuff done..

Whole back half of the car was cleaned up, patched up, applied rust converter, and then sprayed with a rubberized undercoating...the pic does not do it justice on how good it looks now

Quick update...whole underside of the car has been patched up and under coated, the rear was bolted back into the car...installed the srt clutch master cylinder..whole inside has been patched and coated with rust converter... Cage is now fully welded..interior and roll cage is being painted this weekend and we should have the motor and trans pulled soon

Plan is have the inside and engine bay completly painted before the cold weather turns and have the engine trans im my basement to build during the winter

Its getting there! I get too choose my vacation time in jan this year and im taking off for the mopar show at carisle..So this car will be done early spring for sure!

Motor and trans are in my basement so we can rebuild/paint everything over the winter while we prep all the little pieces to go back into the car

Painted the floor and firewall with a rustoleum multitextured paint and it came out sick...its almost like a griptape feeling off a skate board..its a much lighter grey than it looks in the pic and the contrast with the black roll bar and sides looks great..

Everything major is done on the car now to paint all the accessories and start putting this biatch together!

Cool build. Lots of great craftsmanship and attention to detail. Should be a fun car. Good luck with the rest of the work.

Well the rear brakes came out of a 89 turbo Daytona but they have the same 5x100 bolt pattern as the Srt. And that was just a direct bolt on
