Nice dude, Mopars rule 8) how did it all go wrong though?
it all went wrong the day splinter (he of mercury cougar fame) poped round to pick up some stuff id done for him and he said why not do it properly, my quick "get it on the road over the winter" has got out of control (that was winter 2 years ago) i hope to have it running (but probably quite a way off complete) by the mopar nats next year.

well due to other commitments the dart has sort of slowed down, the frame is now fully welded and front suspension mounted. im now looking at narrowing the rear axle but hit a small hickup, i cant get any tube for to replace the old ones so today i decided to look at doing some of the nice bits. this is the result of 6 hours work, took longer to design it how i wanted than make it but this is the gauge mount that will be mounted on the steering column (thats another thing on the long list of things to make)
