Another project eating at my time.
« on: October 24, 2020, 07:33:29 PM »
Stalled on my boat project to get my 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A 340 Six-Pak  in primer.  I bought it in 1978 and took it apart in 1981 with 84k on the speedo.  Wow time flies, anyhow we had a slow down at work when covid hit so we started working on it, complete disassembly and put on rotisserie, removed about 200lbs of undercoat and sandblasted everything on the underside and ended up replacing the trunk floor. I wanted it in epoxy so it did not sit around and get surface rust. Still a lot of work to get it done but looking forward to it, not as much as I look forward to finishing my boat build.

Awesome!  The '70 Challenger has always been my favorite muscle car!

Wow that's really sweet!! I have never been a fan of Dodge trucks but always loved their cars especially the Challengers an Chargers in that era. Can't wait to see it move forward!
