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.

Well got bogged down a little on this project

Driver front wheel has ( had) a bit of a lean to it so I have been changing all the bushings in the front suspension hoping to fix it
Nope
Saving the best ( or worst) till last I was ready to change the bushing in the lower control arm
Got everything apart to get the arm out and something did not look right
It seems the crush sleeve that is welded into the K frame that the lower control arm pivots on is no longer welded in  brickwall

Was not really an option to try and weld it back together while still in the car as the K frame was full of oil and grease and a mouse nest
Maybe a car fire would have solved my problem .......
Maybe not

So now everything needs to come out

I came up with a plan of trying to drop just the K frame and leave to motor where it was

So found some 6X6 blocks and set them on the inner fenders with a plank and a 2x2 metal tubing above the motor to hold a chain

Got a chain around under the crank at the front and tightened it up by wedging another board under the 2x2 tube and taping it over to the center with a hammer
Pulled the 2 motor mount bolts out and motor was free

Looking at the steering I decided to just take the three bolts out of the steering box and just leave it in the car
So I did not have to get that stupid roll pin out to pull steering column Wink

I just tied the steering box up to the engine support brace also with some baling string ( we got lots of that stuff here on the farm )

After getting the K frame out and looking at the good frame I could see how big the hole really was

And looking at passenger side it looks like someone had already done some fixing on that side as it seems there is a very thick washer welded on the outside
Glad i did not try to fix it in the car after all

It took me about a week of spare time here and there to get it apart but I figure about 4 hours of steady work
Should go back together in less time now that the recipe is all figured out on what to do

That is after I change the bushing in the passenger side control arm since it is already out and sitting on the floor

Seems every time I am almost ready to do something on the car something else needs the shop space for a period of time
There has been 2 swap on the winter snow tires
One brake job
And the last one we had to rebuild a set of planetary gears in the front axle of our 4 wd farm loader tractor ( just drove it out of the shop today )

Last month I changed my house furnace from oil to propane so we are putting my old oil furnace in the shop right now
Got a bunch of junk to move out to make some room while the car is still out

Think I have started and moved my car around ( which is a good thing ) more in the last month than in the last year
Getting closer to working on it again but with Christmas coming I can not see much happening on it before January then I should be back at it full time in my spare time

Getting stuff done in Canada just sucks some years.. I hope to get on my car by Christmas, but it's not looking good living here on the edge of Georgian Bay!

Cripes that looks BAD!

One inch of snow here and I stay in bed watching the Ashes (that's cricket).
Quite a sensible pastime until the ball hits you on the head at 90mph and you die...oops...

F6 thats YUMMEE!

Maybe a white stripe for me though? 2thumbs

It has been a while since I have had time or really wanted to tinker on the car
Warmer weather is helping get the bug back
Finishing up a few things in the trunk area and then get an even coat of primer on everything so I can get some colour on it
Think it will be easier to paint some colour on the places farther up in the trunk before I change the back window plug and make the trunk opening even smaller

Going to get the bottom side ready for some colour also before I get the gas tank mounted

Anyone know the best way to get the crude out of the filler pipe ?
When I took the tank off the car it still had gas in it and the pipe has crude just in the bottom 6 inches

Oh yes I also spent some money on the pointy front parts for my car  2thumbs

I spoke with Don on the phone today

http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,131821.0.html

I am getting a nose cone , head light doors and buckets , Z braces and the two metal C channels that mount on the car frame rail bumper bolts

Couple weeks to finish up the parts and another week for shipping

My list is getting shorter
Still need grill and frame
Lower valance
Make a plate to tie C channels and Z braces and lower valance to lower cone together
Latch tray
Direction signal lights
Assorted gasket air seals
Something to make head lights open and shut

Before I get any more parts I need to stock up on my fun money cause there is not much left right now  icon_smile_tongue
