Nothing like an artifical deadline to spur action. At least that is what all the car shows seem to suggest...

Productive weekend, nice sunny mid 40's. I assembled the front sheet metal for the last time. Everything is bolted on and aligned and the engine compartment is 98% done. All i need to do is finish the ignition, fuel system and add fluids and it should fire up.

While a '68 front clip does bolt on and the trim lines, align. the gaps are bad. Maybe a product of the times, but my Dart is not this bad. The bottom of the fenders are closer to the doors then the top of the fenders. The trailing edge of the hood is 1/2" from the cowl. You can't remove the grill without removing the radiator or bumper. I had to get creative to get the hood to latch. The turn signals are about 3 inches deep and this dosen't clear the radiator support. So you need to drill clearance holes. The '68 turn signals have 2 wires and the '74 has three.

The front bumper is an interesting case study. The brackets look good, never been bent or dented. The bumper is straight. The holes in the frame rails are the same distance from the front of the frame rail. But bolt the bumper on, the passenger side is 3/4" farther out. Nothing a cutting torch and die grinder can't fix, just a sample of the "little things" that makes this time consuming.

71 days till MATS..
