    I know! PO put it in... the top was in great shape and that just destroys a perfectly good top ,,,,and I hate the sunroof. I'm still debating as to what to do. It's my wifes and she likes it but I'm a purist for the most part.

    Ive had several PMs about the frame... I ordered off amazon and used Chassis saver gloss black on the frame. Just as good as POR15 without the price. It's very thick.

    No. Big radiators. Never had an issue but engines are close to stock. For my A12 roadrunner (not pictured) I have stroked it and ported and polished the heads and cam. Not installed yet so I don’t know. It’s pushing 600hp+ according to the dyno. I will be using a recored 057 “hemi” radiator...

    On the rear heater... I disassembled and flushed heater core and soaked in that lime away stuff. Worked really well and flushed w water until water ran clear. Then pressure tested to make sure no leaks. The part number sticker SHOULD go right in the middle but I had a little ding I couldn’t get...

    Mine is a ‘78 (9-77 build so it’s a 78) so that might account for some differences... I bought a bolt kit (someone on here sells a 200 or so piece kit) and replated what I could on my originals. I called some industrial platers until I found one who’d replate small amounts for me. I sandblasted...

    Unfortunately top had a cut out for a sunroof. Decided just to go with it because gutters and everything else was perfect. Can still patch in future if needed.
