ran out of welding gas so i couldn't finish the darn driveshaft...... have to go find a solid rubber mat to make the gas tank drop a bit... I honestly could do an in tank pump... the problem is fitting it in the tank, as the top of the tank is covered. This pump should be fine for volume I think.

I do have a big pcv valve, no downdraft. I was thinking about putting an access port under the back seat to get to the gas pump heh. I will be painting any shiny bolts.

What master cylinder did you end up with? The reservoir fittings are really tall on it, but I like it otherwise.

Cool glad im in good company... Its pretty massive. Do you use a proportioning valve or just let er rip??? Your using disc/drums?

Starting to look almost like a running engine... The little s**t is killing me... Ordered a gas pedal boot... and I don't have a good steering column cover...

Farking annoying when im missing bolts or certain little parts... Had to order some linkage parts... uhg wait... I don't know i need them but hey... I ordered turquoise vinyl paint also... have to wait. Ill get the carb in, and start the heater core and box finally. Fully cleaned out and getting set for wiring the whole car.

Im going with 58 tail lights, the regal lancer front pieces also(the big brows) and Dual 58 head lights.

I tested my horns. I have two types(autolite and spartan(I went with the spartans, they work like new))... would someone explain why are there so MANY goddarn different horns on these cars? Theres like 50 parts nums

Brakes are complete and bled... just may need some fine tuning on the adjustable pedal rod, this thing will stop on a dime i bet, pedal feels great... going to summit today to get a tranny cooler.

finishing up hoses, hopefully putting the heater core and box in today... then clean the whole inside out for wiring starting thurs... finally...

I will start buffing some trim also...

Then you will have to have 2 keys for the switch and doors. Why not use a '56 switch or a '57 Plymouth or DeSoto switch instead?

What is the advantage of that ignition switch? The factory one fits in the bezel.

I have the 57 dodge switch, I guess I could use it, just ignore the other wires... i wanted to simplify it, but as long as i only use the circuits i need im good. ill have to check it.

I may have been thinking the headlight switch is the "fuse box" switch

So how much hood clearance would you say you have with the HH intake and that AVS? i've been told the HH intake is too tall for these cars but i've never been told by how much. I have one i want to use in my firesweep because the stock intake is terrible.

I have about an inch, it fit... I went to a spector low profile intake. I might adjust it a bit and paint it black.

I am thinking about cutting the tubes on each side back also.... not using the tubes of course.

The headliner dye turned out really nice. Hope you can use it!

It is normal for paint materials to build up on edges of panels. It's a consequence of the material flowing out, and it is just something you have to watch out for. It's one of the reasons that high-end paint jobs get sanded between each coat, to flatten that area so you don't get a "bump" around panel edges after laying down several layers of primer/paint.

To preface this, I am just saying this as an observation watching your car come together contrasted with my own experience of building the Chrysler. It is interesting to see your use of aftermarket parts in your build, and the challenges they can sometimes cause. Obviously I did some custom / one-off stuff on my car, but believe it or not, I did try to refinish and reuse all the OEM parts and fasteners wherever possible. Partially because I wanted it "period correct-ish" but also because they were already there, so they were free! This comment was prompted by the aftermarket radiator, necessitating the aftermarket trans cooler, and the myriad small bits and pieces needed to get the systems working properly. I did have the same thought while you showed the brake light switch too, lol. You have done a good job of planning ahead and making sure all that is accounted for, so good on ya. The car is coming along very nicely, and just wanted you to know, someone does watch your vids.

1” eh? That’s... tight for engine movement... I thought about getting the carb pad milled down some, it will hurt intake performance some but it won’t be as bad as hitting, I don’t want to cut the hood.
