Very, very nice car...  You have an email too  Wink

I like the look of those Kelsey Hayes wheels a whole lot.  It's a crying shame that Chrysler didn't figure out that the lugs just needed to be retorqued after the first few hundred miles, as they would have sold a lot of those wheels IMHO.

Thanks for posting the pics!

Actually they make them both ways, after market style and factory style with trim rings. also they make the correct size now but only trimring style 15x6

Now you have me wondering, but what is the correct location for the jack in  the trunk? Me and Gene were looking at about a half dozen cars at Carlisle, and it appeared that everyone had their jacks in different locations. I know where the sticker in the trunk shows it, but I think that there was only 1 car at Carlisle that actually had the jack in that location. As Gene put it, it made the jack pop a wheelie on at least one car when the jack was put there.

Great looking car. Did it have the rear window defroster?

It started out as a rusty, green '69 R/T SE.

Now, it's well on it's way to being a Daytona.

A fake Daytona, that is.

On those jacking istructions, I see the original scissor jack hold down clamp was held with a wing nut...the green Daytona has a standard nut. Makes me wonder if the guy did that intentionally, so nobody would swipe his jack at shows. scratchchin

What's a Superbird jack doing in a Daytona?   Tongue

The problem Danny mentioned that we observed at Carlisle had to do with the location of the mounting stud.  If the stud itself was mounted too close to the quarterpanel, there wasn't enough room to put the scissors jack in between the bumper jack/wing brace and the jack hold-down bracket.  Chris Sauer's former car that Danny and I pored over quite a bit was one that did not have enough room.  If the jack was positioned the way it shows on the jack detail, the hold-down bracket had to fit on top of the jack base where it turned up.  That meant when you tightened down the wing nut (which incidentally, is just a spare tire hold down wingnut) the opposite end of the jack would rise up off of the trunk floor.

Hard to explain, but Pete Veight, Danny and I were scratching our heads about the situation until we figured out it was the location of the mounting stud.

I actually want to go over that little detail with Vance on my Daytona to make sure that the same problem doesn't pop up.  Chris' car's stud had never been relocated so Creative takes the blame for that miscue.

Not sure if it had the rear defroster or not Danny.  I never even thought to look.  Is there some significance to it having one or not?  I too noticed that the jack location was differnt between the cars that were at Carlisle.  The first picture attached is a trunk shot of the red Daytona that Vance restored and scored something like 98 points at the Nationals.  The second trunk shot attached is from an orange Daytona at Carlisle that is an original Y2 with a tan interior.  I am assuming the the second pic is the somewhat correct location providing the hole is located in the correct spot for the stud and the the F6 car pictured above is incorrect.  I'm sure with the high quality control that was involved with building the Daytona's at Creative Industries, that the hole locations for the stud varied quite a bit.

Is it in fact a stud or a bolt that was welded to the underside of the trunk floor?  Any one have any pics?  Or was it attahed in the third pic attached.  This pic is from the wrecked F6 Daytona that was at Carlisle.  But I still want to know if it was just a regualr bolt that was put up through the floor or was it a special stud/bolt with a flat head on it.

It is my understanding that the nut for the jack hold down could have been either the wingnut style or just a regular nut as pictured in the F6 trunk shot above.  I read this in an article not too long ago.  May have even been the article in Mopar Action regarding Tim Welborn's 999 Orange and Bronze Daytona's.  I'll try and find where I read it.
