All that dirt and not a speck of rust. Can't be a real Mopar!! 😘

Well, it’s supposed to be only a few months old, so I would hope that there wouldn’t be much rust. 😁

Just like everything else your chassis are always very impressive , and the paint on your exhaust and mufflers may be the best I've seen !

And personally I wouldn't call it "dirty" , looks more like nicely "aged" to me . :D

are you making the drive shaft and the U joints  ??

my U joints failed every 25,000 miles or so on my long ago surrendered 73 Dodge Charger

and I had the smallest V8!

by the way - really glad that you re-routed the exhausts - given all of the great under-body work thats been done

and by the way - the brake lines are attached to the axle - how ??  is that flat lead strip - or what ???

Actually, the brackets aren’t holding much.

They’re just there for looks more than anything.

They are just thin strips of aluminum cut from an aluminum soda can and bent to shape.

Hi Steve, amazing work as always sir. That chassis is a work of art. Some of the “cleanest”, “dirt” I’ve ever seen, some words that wouldn’t normally make sense in that order. 
 

Cheers, Steve

Thanks everyone!

 

Finally got started on laying down some primer on the body parts.

I got the side marker bezels installed, will add another coat of primer, do a light sanding and then I can begin applying some color.

Those side markers look awesome! What did you use for those?

Just short pieces of aluminum tubing, drilled out a little to thin the wall thickness and then polished on the ends.

Actually a pretty easy upgrade.
