    I'll update again after I do a few more things but as of now I'm gonna try to get a front end alignment after I put new inner & outer tie rods on in the next day or so.

          Great looking car and great work! You always get more than you bargain for with a wreck... But in the end (if you take your time) you have a bargain!

          I love the color.

          I am actually in the market for a Challenger at the moment as well. Been looking at SRT8 Challengers and Chargers. Just looking for the right deal...

            Yes sir I'm in the market for a set of wheels, so far I'm leaning towards a set of torque thrust M. The 20 inch wheel selection is pretty limited & especially with me wanting a staggered look with a lip. I'll probably change the rest of the exhaust soon & do some suspension work. I've already got a few bolt ons so a 6.4 cam swap is coming in the future. I may wait til winter on the cam & springs so I can enjoy it a little.

              Getting one that isn't ripped into is the key, parts are dirt cheap from factory so I'd check with a dealer before looking at any aftermarket stock pieces. I was very fortunate to find one lightly wrecked, it did need put on the frame machine but my bend was at the farthest front tip. For me if that's where it's gonna be bent then that's the best place to be. For some reason the price on these wrecks are just insane & it took me almost 4 years to find one at a fair price & worth getting. But here lately I've seen a few fair deals floating around but they don't last long. If my mind don't change I'll start buying up wrecked challengers & vettes just to part out.

                Thank you sir! It's been a lot of time & patience, fixing a wreck or any car you've got to be prepared for set backs & to not let them get you down.

                  Nice build....I am not a Mopar guy but really like the looks of those cars, out of the big three they pulled off the job of bringing the old school look into a modern package. I powdered some rims for a guy a few years back to match his SRT8 300 and they are using some insane flake/pearl in the factory colors.... lol learned my lesson to never color match except in clear direct sunlight.

                    Yup the first spray looked good til it was pulled out of the garage into the direct sunlight & then you could see the front was black instead of blue. I really like this color on my car, blackberry pearl is a great in person color that doesn't transfer well in pictures.

                      Ya getting the colors to translate to pictures was always very hard to do when I was powdering.

                        Glad to see all of your hard work finally paying off. Hopefully it will provide you with many years of enjoyment and the satisfaction that you fixed it yourself.

                              Sweet I like the staggered look with some dish in rear and pretty much straight up in front.That was one of my favorite things about Shelby's white GT
