Installing some of the door hardware is a tedious process with new paint, but so far is going well! The new power window regulators are nice but I spend a lot of time laying out the electric crank switches. The power crank switches do not come with a Mopar adapter so I needed to cannibalize a crank handle shaft from an old rusted regulator and welded it to part of the new crank shaft. The crank switches work the power windows by moving the handle up or down about 15° to contact microswitches. A cool set up if you want power windows but the look of manual window cranks. All of my original window regulators are in excellent condition so I’ll need to find some rusted regulators to salvage the small crankshaft for the other three windows. PM me if you have some broken, rusted or bad window regulator’s
Thanks
Pat

Now with the rear wheels on I could finish up the rear brake cooling ducts. I had made the air intakes and modified the Torque boxes before painting the bottom of the car 2+ years ago. But I did not have the rear installed at that time so I could fit the wheels to make the disk brake plates until this weekend.

A true labor of love! Outstanding craftsmanship.:smile2::smile2::smile2:

I fabricated the front caliper cooling vent this weekend. Had a hard time finding a piece of 2 inch OD aluminum tubing until I got into my son’s golf bag and found his golf ball picker-upper tube. Cut off about 3” and put the cap back on. He will never know that holds two less balls;-)
Thanks

Very nice work. You'll want to fabricate screens for the air intakes for the brakes, especially the rears. If not, stones or some trash can get into your brakes and score your rotors or rattle around and tear up your paintwork.
Oh, and fire suppression system.

This is the style we used on Trans Am cars, SS and fine enough to stop all but the smallest debris.
