Here's my latest project, and one of my favorites, as it belonged to a good friend who passed about 1 1/2 years ago. His name was Dan. I hope he'll be proud of his beloved Challenger again.



Front Floors...........










As some of you may know, the "Truck" Dana 60 that I converted to go under this Chally, didn't have a provision for a pinion snubber. So, I made my own custom pinion snubber using one modded from an 8&3/4...


Fully resored Dash cluster/gauges....With LED's.


Finally got the HID lights in the front and working.


Driver's Quarter Panel replacement....





Anybody who knows Challengers knoiw the trunk lids are notorious for rusting out.
I have since replaced it.

The latest with grille positioned for picture.

Brilliant work. Nothing better than saving a classic from being parted out.
