I like what I see here Cesar! The wheels look good! I opened up the grille on my Magnum and added a piece of photoetch behind it. I'm looking forward to more!

Yes, they look a whole lot better! Did you make these? Will they allow for lowering? Should look great when its done.

Thanks Mike!! Yes, I did it. ... but first I did all suspension modifications and assembly. Lowered... Wheels installed (last update)... After that I've decided turn out a coilover set w/ real mini springs... Got some reference pics, take some measures and did it on my lathe. They could be functional, but I don't want to make more mods in suspension arms. I would like to paint the body in this weekend.

Magnum it is a unstressed project. Unlike Mustang... Now it will receive a newest 4-link system, because this Mustang is in stand by... (Thanks Cliffo!!!)

Thanks Mike!

The coil overs look great. I really like the uniform distance between the coils. Thanks for showing the components. Nothing looks as good as real metal. But, I think I can do something similar with plastic, a punch, and some Alclad.

Thanks Rick! Yes you are correct... We can do that with styrene and I did for Mustang rear suspension in 2008... Now I wont use more, they are oversized. I'll do a new and correct size set... but I did a tutorial.

Bro, it's looking sweet! Let's see some paint soon  Just a tip Cesar... Get the headlight lenses fitted ( glued onto chrome surround ) before installing them otherwise they're very troublesome to get into place after the chrome surround is put in place 
This Magnum with your cool wheels & in black with a Hemi will be a cool looking hearse... I would love to be carried off in a black-beauty like it! Lol!
Cheers Cliffo 
