    Thanks, the bumper is off a '10. We had to splice in 3 3/4 '' to widen it and tweak the lower corners so they did'nt protrude but the end result fits real good. Yea, the hemi under glass is for a '06 and hood clearance was an issue but were able to lower it enough to make it work. I'll add some more pics and future plans shortly

    A few more bumper pics. If the petty cash jar ever gets full enough I'd weld up the cuts on the lower corners we made to relieve stress and have it re chromed . I do need to find something to cover the step with.

    Here's some more pics of the 87. We don't find them this clean around here very often. They are usually rusted through with an old plow frame hanging off the front. Next up is a little steering work, sector shaft& joint, stabilizer. Then maybe interior, leather seats, vinyl floor. Maybe paint by summers end. I'm thinking the dark brown with either black or light cream side panels.

    Just a thought, but i think it would be cool to install a bird bath hood and cut the bird bath sections out and put plexi glass in there to see the Hemi… it would be different.
    Being a mechanic on F16s is exciting, but Mopars are my passion!

    I wish. The shop belongs to a couple of friends, and the mopars are customer cars. They do own some mopar heaven of their own tho, including a Hellcat and a '69 hemi charger. Over the years have restored a roadrunner and a lift off hood sixpack Bee for me. Very talented, take great pride in their work on old mopars

    Thanks, I probably got a little carried away, now it's so nice I don't want to get her dirty. I'll post some more pics of some other little things we did like the recessed driving/fog lamps. Working on an oak floor in the cargo area now. Do have a solid 86 rc also a big block tranny/transfer case so maybe a six-pack, play in the dirt project down the road?

    not sure if 87hemirc is still active but recognized this RC at Barrett Jackson and it just went off the block.  Would love to hear more detail on the swap but also the interior panels you did to match the seats.

    Any info on the sale at Barrett?  I recorded it but finding time to watch it is the hard part for me.  About what time did it go across the block?  Did it make the TV airing? 

    Thanks guys and by the way what a nice build.

    87hemirc,
    Hello,
    I tried send you a PM but it did not work.   I have a few questions for you if you are still around.
