    Not bad! Bet it feels so good!
    Sure does, it's been a long time coming!

      Got the back tires on, looks like the fenders will need radiusing some more. The rear firewall is about half done now too thanks to my buddy Pauly.

        Got a few more loose ends tied up - trans cooler plumbed in, shifter adjusted, diff oil checked, trunk latch fixed and so on. Also got tired of looking at the ugly-ass patchwork of bondo and primer on the front fenders, so one can of primer later they're still ugly but at least they're mostly one color..

          Got a bit more done tonight - fuel line secured, battery cable run through some metal tubing to stop it getting burnt on the headers etc. Nothing photo worthy but it's a couple of steps closer to driving.

            Thought I'd update this. Tidied up the interior and got it drivable earlier this year - here's some pics.

              So a chance conversation at Irwindale drags and the Plymouth was off to a new home. I kept the 440 so now it has a built 413 and fenderwell headers. Found this pic on the HAMB the other day.
