    Where are your sub-frame connectors from and are those add on torque boxes at the back of them?

    The sub frame connectors came with the car. They were originally bolt on. They mounted under the rear frame rail so when looking at the side profile of the car you could see them underneath.
    There was no way I was accepting that look so I modified them to slip inside the frame rail as that's the proper way to do it. They do come thru the floor just behind the front seats in the rear foot-well area.
    The rear torque boxes came from RestoRick restorations - I just bought the front ones from Wilson Productions inc. and have yet to install them.Click image for larger version.

    Well, I managed to poke away at a few more things on the list, a little trouble hooking up the clutch linkage since I didn't take it apart and have never worked on a 4 speed Mopar at all. A lot of this project has been putting back together stuff i didn't take apart which can be frustrating.. I will never buy another car that is dis-assembled and in boxes ever again (no offense John, I know your plans changed mid-stream). Not familiar with the 4 speed , every car I have ever had was an auto, but I have been figuring it out. I think I have it mocked up ok now, missing a few small pcs though I think. I have the shifter in place and working now as well. Also installed driveshaft (one of the four yoke bolts is missing ugh, must have fallen off at some point during this build) Also mocked up the dual H pipe and mufflers that came off my Aspen, will use this exhaust temporarily to get this thing moving since it was almost brand new and I have it sitting right here. It bolted right up in my mock up which I wasn't sure being different headers and a different car. Its a "dump in front of diff" exhaust...not my favorite....Anyway, my list is still pretty long ,but all simple stuff I can just poke away at.

    List is quickly getting shorter and shorter. Finished hooking up the clutch linkage properly and adjusted clutch...good pedal now! Installed distributor and wires..Also buttoned up bottom of tranny, I had ordered a dust cover from Brewers & it came quickly and I installed it and the inspection cover, cleaned up and installed 1976 starter, yep the big'un, cleaned & installed alternator, fan/pulley, installed Rad that came with the car new in a box, its not a proper 1976 one, its a repop for a 1980 so a little out of place but will work, installed hoses & overflow tank, windshield fluid reservoir & wipers. All that is really left to do to fire this thing up is fill everything with fluids (tranny, rear diff, rad, engine ) and connect the exhaust and its pretty well ready to fire up, there are some other little details but not much.....

    Dylan - get some heater hoses on there. The heater core was brand new and a new fan motor is in there too.

    Installed complete exhaust and fuel tank and fuel system today. Got a tank from a member on another site , needed a little re-furb on the outside , but the inside was really clean no rust at all . Made a lot of progress this weekend , not far from firing this thing up ....
