1968 Charger restomod

Post by blade » 02 Jan 2017, 17:09

A friend of mine has a shop in Las Vegas and he is restoring my '68 Charger.
Rather than copy and paste all the pictures, I figured I would just post the link to his topic on dodgecharger.com
To save some weight and because the fenders and hood were all busted up, I bought "bolt on" fiberglass ones. It's also getting a "bolt on" fiberglass trunk lid, so it will look stock.

Thanks, it's going to be a '68 Reaper, Vegas style. ;)
I'm restoring the smaller parts myself. I'll post some pictures that are not in the topic.
Lower control arm braces welded on and new polyurethane bushings everywhere.

In Arizona, 1.5 hours from Vegas.
I'm Dutch though... I can read and write Dutch but my phone doesn't know it and changes every word so I just use English.

Upper core support brace fabricated and ready to be welded in. The body now has 10 braces added, so it's as rigid as can be. No more panel warping or stress cracks.
