thanks so much for the encouraging words Ken, they are truly humbling, you should share some of your builds with us, I know everyone would love to see them, sorry to hear about your Road Runner, that would be heart breaking for sure

 

Hi Bill, sorry for the delayed reply, got tied up....lol.  I still have some more to finish on my builds, I am currently in Malaysia and most of my stuff is back in the States. I am trying to finish up my 68 Roadrunner and will eventually post some pics here, nothing compared to you guys builds, I am still a newbie  :unsure:.  Yeah, I still have not got over my loss of my 'baby'  :( it's been 8 years now.

 

I am still awed by your work. and yes, there are some awesome builders here and I am learning some great techniques.

 

Awesome front suspension build   :o !!!!!!

 

Best of luck with your build, can't wait for the grand finale

Hi Ken, it is very kind of you to join just to leave a comment, are you a model builder?? this is an awesome forum to share with, look around and you will be blown away with the talent on here! this build is all of the things I have all ways wanted to try my hand at, the engine is my first time ever touching a mill,, and my first scratch built chassis as well, not sure I'm the one to do a tutorial, a real machinist would laugh at my common attempts, but I am having a great time learning new things and that is what a hobby is all about, and I'm a Mopar man to the bone, this build is one thing I see when I try and represent for us Mopar guys, thanks again

 

 

Hi Bill, Yes, I have been checking out other builds and yes, there are some great talented builders here. I am so glad, that one of your wishes to do something like this has come true. The outcome is really amazing. I believe most of us here are not anywhere close to being a machinist,  let alone own a lathe. so, your tutorial maybe very helpful to those of us that are new and that are wanting to attempt a similar project. I am sure the fellas here agree with me, no matter how you do it , it is the final outcome that truly matters.   :) bow_down_together-966.gif

 

Btw, I do build models, mainly AC 1/32 and some 1/48.  I had a 68 Roadrunner 383 car that I restored and was my daily driver, it was stolen and was never recovered, which sucks big time, so, to compensate for my loss, I started build Mopar car kits, mainly Roadrunners...lol. 

 

Best regards

 

Ken

Hi Bill,

 

I came across your build, while searching for what exactly, I forgot, lol,  on Google. I read all 44 pages and signed up, just to congratulate you on an awesome, jawdrop.gif build.  

I have never, ever seen anything so amazing, especially in this scale. if you have a chance to show us, how you did some of your machining, as part of a tutorial, that would be amazing, if it is not asking too much. I am a Mopar fan and to see a Hemi engineered like this is beyond words

 

 

Looking forward to further updates
