    Trunk drop panel and inner wheel arch cut off,

    Trunk drop off was just rusted out

    Inner wheel arch had been split and crushed, clearly been in an accident in the past

    Crazy when you look back to your starting point, and then watch the de-evolution of your car, many times I have come close to just walking away from it, but ........

    Glad you kept going and saved another from the graveyard.
    I have a friend in Sydney who has a 71 2 door Aussie chrysler what he has put the earlier front on to make it a Dodge Dart. Our body shells from the windscreen back came from the USA but we changed the front clip. He had a 318 rebuilt about 20 years ago that still hasn't been run yet so will need rings, seals etc. the body is as rusty as hell but for 20 years I have been talking to him about taking it on. He says its probably too far gone but I am planning to take it on.
    Are you self taught?
