68 Dodge Dart *POLISHED*

Post by DeeCee on Tue 01 Nov 2016, 10:07 pm

Kicking off with another Mopar this month, '68 Dart and am going to try and squeeze these BBS rims under it, ..one way or another..  






As you can see, they don't fit.... YET !!



First job, to mini-tub the rear.
Left one is stock, right one is done.

Cheers Steve, PLANS..... well, most plans usually go out the window, like when i thought i will use these wheels,
and they still don't fit, so here is a hint of the new plan.....
This WRC Corolla holds a solution...   Twisted Evil







As i have something like this on my 1:1, i thought why not !! Lets see if it works out..

HA HA....... does a bear shit in the woods..... Rolling Eyes  Very Happy

Well, it will go down a little bit, but the size of these wheels are holding it back , or up a bit, but it will look tough..

Here is where it is at.

Thanks guys, it was a first for me with those flares, and now onto another  one,
the interior,  i went ALL OUT with this one,2 nights to get this done, i did ALL the stitching on the seats with thread,
and also on the door trims, including the arm rests, and some flocking inserts too.
Also made adjustable head rests..

Sorry mate, i missed this question, i am running the kit 426, with the duel quads, its nearly done, but not quite.

Thanks too guys, i really pulled out all the stops on that interior, it was one tiny needle too.. Wink

BUT, i did get rid of the leaf springs and made my own rear end for it.
First attempt, was not happy with the look of it though.


New one.

Dale DAMN YOU!!!!!! LOL that is just AWESOME you flared it, just so you could make a whole new rear end didn't ya? LOL Razz

GAWD that looks good! And the engine from what I can see, looks GREAT too! You go the Cross-Ram on it for the dual quads intake? -I think so, its difficult to tell from the way its setting in the pic but I think you did!

GAWD this build......... WOW And whats to come isn't nothing to shake a stick at!!!!! The suspense is killin' me!
