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

More grunting and groaning today as I installed the leaf springs. I used the Mopar performance 3/4" offset front hanger and offset rear shackles. The ones that were on the car when I bought it were homemade ones as this car was a drag car in a previous life, but was not tubbed. Feb 20 (1).jpg Feb 20...

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

So, with the weather being so cold out lately, no painting can be done in the garage with no heat. Instead......with some grunting and groaning and being very careful not to scratch anything I installed the gas tank. The stainless straps gave me some grief, but I was able to git her done.

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

CT - yes it is a one piece trunk floor. If you go back to page 8 of my thread you will see pics of it. It goes in thru the top.....no need to remove the rear panel at all but you will have to notch the trunk pan for the rearmost support brackets that are there for the rear bumper mounts.

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

No ct - I did not blast them.
I used this fibre wheel in a drill press.

And I also used a wire wheel as it is easier to get it into little crevices that the fibre wheel can't get into.

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

Thanks ct - I thought it would be better to upgrade it something other than cardboard, which is what the original piece felt like. So, before the heater box goes back in, I need to order the heater control cables. Others have told me to install the heater control cables before the heater goes back i...
