Yes, admirable that the OP is staying with it for so long.  There was another build thread here that I think hit 6-8 years - can't remember exactly which one or how long but it was lengthy.

I notice that you have your valance corners installed.  Did you have any misfits to the quarter? That has been a big complaint about the after market corners.

They looked like they were fairly unmolested, that's why I asked.  So, you had to do some slice and dice or just some bending?

 Viper engine swaps are out and 392 or Hellcat swaps are in. Have you though about changing engines?

Yes, he already has many thousands in cash spent to get to this point, plus hundreds of hours of quality hand crafted work setting it up. Why not drop that down the shitter in order to buy another engine that cost big bucks to follow what is currently "in".

Dig the viper engine. Keep it up!
