Re: What's your color?

Very cool. Welcome to the Nest! Post some pictures when you can. As you might have seen in one of the previous comments - there is a link to a table that shows how many cars were painted a certain color across the entire line. For white, there were just a little over 10,000 Satellites, Road Runners,...

Updates??? :bump: :bump:
Winter finally arrived in South Dakota, so not much car action right now. Progress will continue when it gets a little warmer.

Re: sorta new

Awesome work! Your car most likely took a nice solid bump to the rear end at some point - that crumple zone in the rear frame rail did exactly what it was designed to do. Great that you were able find another rear frame rail. I dismantled a 71 Sebring Plus several years back and have a nice set of r...

Re: 1973 Satellite Custom - Suspension Question

Yes, the 1973-1974 suspension / K-Frames are completely different than the earlier 1971-1972 ones. In 1973 they went with an "Isolator" system which was supposed to absorb a little more of the harshness from rough roads. A description of the new "Torsion-Quiet" suspension can be found here: https://...

Re: Daddy's Stinky Car progress page - updated for 2020.

Holidays and Winter are a tough time to get anything car-wise accomplished. Did catch a couple good weather days in the last 2 months to get one more section completed. The driver's side inner A-pillar brace where the sun visor mounts was ate up with rust on this car from condensation while sitting ...

Definitely some major metal work going on there - but looks great so far.

Last two patches are in - the windshield channel is completely finished now. Also scored an Edelbrock Performer intake for my little souped-up 318 build. https://i.imgur.com/lahw8M9.jpg https://i.imgur.com/h1k6GIZ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/a8y2KXI.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ollJaYC.jpg https://i.imgur.co...

Re: sorta new

Any Idea why images are posting sideways?? I think this forum takes your images and displays them with the long edge on the top and bottom. So, if you take your pictures with your phone in the portrait position (long edges on the sides), then it rotates them so the long edge is on the top and botto...

Re: Looking for my 73 RR

Tough one without the VIN. But with it being a factory sunroof car, might make it a little easier. Can't be too many F8 green/black stripe 318 sunroof Road Runners out there still. I do both the Mopar Sunroof Registry and the 73-74 Plymouth B-body Registry, and I haven't seen that car yet. If you ca...

Re: New to board! Need help on orange 73 RR

Welcome! Check this website page out - lots of color options there and the info about them. EK2/Vitamin C orange is a good color.

Good luck with the color choice and please post some project pictures!

Awesome space! And it looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you on the RR - damn rust! Looking forward to updates on that well optioned Runner.

Re: Daddy's Stinky Car progress page - updated for 2020.

Keepin' it going. One last patch was needed in the lower windshield channel. The weather has been holding pretty good up here in the great white north. Was warm enough one day to get some primer laid down. Now on to the two bad spots in the upper section of the windshield channel. https://i.imgur.co...

Re: Startin to work on the Clone Runner (it's PAINTED!)

Pretty exciting seeing stuff go back on the car. I hope to have my shell in complete paint by late summer so I can start putting stuff back on!

Re: Daddy's Stinky Car progress page - updated for 2020.

Driver's side windshield channel corner has been repaired. Got some primer on the driver's door jamb area too while the weather was nice. Still have a few more windshield channel repairs to go! https://i.imgur.com/9f8aaa8.jpg https://i.imgur.com/N1lklHN.jpg https://i.imgur.com/sGDRYa8.jpg https://i....
