Coming along nicely. I wish my windshield rubber looked like that. Mine is hard as a rock and in about 1000 pieces.

Great emblem haul you have there. The script styles of the old cars were so much cooler than most of what's on the new cars, IMHO.

Dash out... gonna rebuild this harness on this sucker I guess also! I do like the video on youtube of the guy doing his Plymouth. dash is going to the sandblaster, brake assembly will be replaced with a power steering one.

I have new guages and speedo all ready to go, so that part will be easy, new steering wheel...

I spun the oil pump on the hemi to build oil pressure tonight also.
Next up, rust bullet black shell tomorrow.

Then rebuild entire front end, buy calipers that fit and pads
put in power steering after I clean out the floor pan area so I can steer it put doors fenders and hood on it(temporarily), take it to dmv to get out of state paper. Get it titled.

lift it off the frame and get to cutting and welding.

You should try to find and install the factory front sway bar, it would help the handling especially with the extra weight.

Agreed. Even with my stock 325, there is a huge difference in handling between my '58 DeSoto with a sway bar and the '58 Dodge without one. Probably not what you want to hear right after painting it all up. I am going to fab the brackets for mine as soon as I get the New Yorker running.

I like the AAJ, it came with bolts and I would probably spend just as much looking for a 77 scrap car, I am replacing all the bolts with new grade 8 stuff(the bumper bracket bolts were the big expense..).

getting closer to putting it back on the ground then I can hook it to the hauler and take it to the new garage for welding up the floors/body cleanup/paint.

Im goign to have to cut that stablizer bar bracket adn weld it back up so i can get the bushings in on the ends. I got the others in fine.

its on the ground. Now to clear it out and get it rolling. the cowl area is good, doesnt need welded, just needs a good cleaning and rust bullet... thatll save me a day or two.

I need to get the drive shaft out, ill drop the tank also, get it boxed up and ready to go to other garage for welding on the body/rest of the frame finish.
