Oil and gear lube are in. I left the trans fill tube at the other garage.

I forgot about the alternator bracket bolt hole that leaks oil... :roll:

I made an angle bracket to help secure that side of the motor plate using that hole. The radiator support rod also goes through there.

I re-worked the main fuel line and re-mounted the fuel pump and fuel cell. I also cleaned and painted a trans fluid tube. I’ll put it in with a new O ring once the paint dries.

I also put the aluminum cross bar back in along with the fenders! :shock:

Getting closer. :D :D

I've been sidetracked with a clutch job on Chase's SRT-4... I'll get back to the Challenger as soon as I can.

I carved out a couple hours today.

I fabricated new mounts for the 5 hood pins and reinstalled the front valence.

A little closer.

I need to finish things up and get over to Howard’s place so we can get it fired up. He gives me friendly nudges from time to time. :D

I put a pair of borrowed Chevy tires/wheels on the rear of the Challenger tonight, getting ready for the trip to Howard’s....

The new pinion seal leaks. :cry:

Very frustrating. Two steps forward, one step back...

Howard gave me another friendly nudge yesterday... I should be ready to take the Challenger to his place pretty soon. I may have to plan it around the bad weather since I don't have an enclosed trailer.

I just need to do a couple small things and then get a battery and some alcohol (for the car...)
