rego'd
i finally got around to getting a twin carby manifold modified to suit the Chrysler 25" long motor, what a pain that was, i had to get a manifold to suit the dodge/plymouth 23" long motors and have it cut and lengthened to suit my 25" long motor.

i was determined to get twin carbs on it lol.

1951 Dodge Kingsway Custom
I've been keeping an eye out for a few years for a cruiser that i could take the family out in, finally found one thanks to Glen Perkins who responded to my wanted ad last week here on Moparmarket and tipped me off to one for sale locally.

the fuel in the tank is old, after bypassing the bad "gelling" fuel and using a fuel cell with clean fresh fuel it fired up first try and does so each time. its great
we've had people stop and come over to have a look at it while we washed it, the boys came round on their bikes to check it out too, they liked it too.
now we know that it fires up and is a healthy motor and gear box there is very little needed to get it on the road.
just need to adjust the clutch, get some indicators on it and 6 seat belts. take it down for regency to do an I.D. check and thats it.

interior
been working on the interior, first interior i've done from scratch.

now the body is mounted permanently and the interior is done, all i have to do is get my dedicated LPG set up done, give it some decent paint, then install the rear and front windows and then take it over the pits at regency and go for rego.

every thing was done with a little "home" sewing machine,
we made nearly every thing,
made the trans console from fiber glass, fiberglass hood lining,

you don't realize how clever automotive upholsterers are until you spend days cutting and moulding carpet to shape when they can do it in hours.

have 1930's ford door handles,
1940 rear view mirror

spent about 2.5 months wiring the car from scratch... never again!
starting to actually look like a car.

1: 3/4's of footwell /firewall carpet cut, sewed and moulded.

2: footwell/ firewall complete and installed

3: footwell complete

4: heat shield insulation and sound deadener installed

5: fiberglass hood lining installed and painted.

6: rear board upholstered and buttoned

7: rear board installed along with side boards

8: rear half carpet installed (before rear and side boards)

9: brake pedal boot made and sewn to driver side foot well carpet.

10: drivers side foot well carpet installed, (2000 model Nissan Maxima bucket seats)

11: 28" genie shifter topped with Frankenstein shifter

12: Lokar universal L.E.D shifter display and power window switches installed on trans hump

13: drivers view, steering colum mounted Autometer speedo (keeping it real with 190kph/120mph speedo, no point having 260kph/160mph or more when the state limits are 110kph)

14: passenger side view, oil press, water temp and volt meter plus L & R turn signal, hi-beam and brake fail L.E.D's (that was a pain in the arse to set up)

15: 1930's ford exterior door handle mated to billet alloy interior handle

16: door handles and mirrors set up and operational.

17: boot carpeted.

Finally got the exhaust done!
well we all know the story, you save up to get some thing for your car then some thing "more important" comes up and comsumes your money, this has happen twice to me as far as the exhaust goes,
1.5 years after first deciding to do the exhaust i finally got it.. third times a charm.

Rob at Rampage did it,
twin 2.5 inch pipe from the headers all the way through
toyota 4WD hangers
Rampage's own X over join.
twin Hooker Aero chambers,
twin Stainless steel pipe from mufflers back.
exit either side of number plate, close to center.

the start of the body work
Well, i thought i'd spend a little ($41) for some black paint to give it a QUICK spray to show up imperfections in the body work,
alot more imperfections than i thought, but thats the idea of this process, now the black shows them up good i can rub back the area of concern and work on it. will be a long, LONG process but if you want a "straight" black car then its gotta be done

not too bad i guess for 1 litre and an hour and a half's work.

for those who are wondering WTF? its up on bricks and axle stands so i can work the full lentgh of the car underneath when doing the exhaust and brake lines AND keep it at the "ride hieght" so there is no clearance hassels when it comes of the bricks / jack (alot cheaper than buying a hoist)
