Glad it worked out, although a bit anti-climatic! So, when do you get to take the beast home and start work?

Just wondering about your forums name... do you have some nice vintage Mopar car? I drive a 1 ton B350 van with the 5.9L engine... some beast!

Got one good stabilizer built from three of the bent ones. Works like new too!

Hey, I have a 440 in my old 75 dodge truck. Looking for something like that to put it in as well... all though that 3 ton truck will pull just about anything...

That's not a 440 anymore. It's been bored and stroked out to a 511 with about 675hp and 700ft/lbs.

The car is a 72 Dodge Challenger that I'd been slowly turning into a custom Pro-Touring car.

Due to my recent back surgery I've restructured my priorities and am going to be selling the car and engine. I'm going to be putting those funds back into starting my own buisness. I'm trying to get it all set up before I retire from the Navy in September. This 73 Soveriegn is going to be my workshop so I'm going to be working on it at a fairly quick pace (as my health will allow).

Next time be a sportsman and go with Detcord. Works like a charm.

Ohhh... that Challenger is so cool!! Sigh... I fell in love with a '69 Charger back in high school.. I thought the sound of that thing was the bomb!

If only I had bought one before their prices went out of sight! You should get a pretty penny for your car... that should fund you for awhile...

Thanks for sharing!

I found this quote rather fun for me because our moving company was one of three involved in the move of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse. And they sure did a lot of filming...

I thought I'd just give a short update to this post. Well, it's off and running, relatively speaking of course. I was able to get it out from under the house and tow it home this past Sunday. All this week I've been gutting it in preperation to replace the floor (shell on). It's just an aluminum tent at this point.

You can follow along here if you want to see what happens to it next. ---> http://www.airforums.com/forums/f187...-go-47936.html

Hope you aren't replacing all of the floor. Because the shell sits on the floor's edge. That is what holds up the shell.

Otherwise it a shell game!

Put thoses results in the floor repair forum.

I know this one was built with the UC type extruded channel. I was planning on piecing the floor together in large sections, using plywood ledges screwed and glued to the floor joints from below.
