nope.

after alot of work I think I got to where the slant 6 will fit, I was tempted to say to hell with it & re-fit it for a V8, but I got it figured out, I hacked alot out of the k member to clear the oilpan but I'll see what I can do about that after it's in place, after saying I was going to cut out the floormat thing out, I looked & it's on top of the frame, I would have to cut the front subframe back off to get to it, then make it so it lines back up with it so I can re-attach it, so I just left it as is. I finally got some filler & filled the cracks between the duster's quarter panel & the new roof section(s) & the dip between the trunk & the spoiler. I almost got the dash done & mounted the cab lights & horns, after I finish up a couple things I think the body might be ready for paint.

will post more pics later tonight/tomorrow.

got the grey on it, turns out my filler/sanding work wasn't as good as I thought... there are a couple lines & cracks still, some are pretty obvious, haven't decided what to do yet. Getting the slant to fit is still fighting me, I've had to cut a chunk out of the tranny tunnel to make it clear the trans, since I was there I cut out my earlier patch & re did it, but now I think I got it figured out.. hopefully, why is it you test fit something & it fits fine but the minute you go to put it together it's completely f%@ked?

got the widened trans tunnel done, engine fits pretty good now.... right now it does anyway, but later who knows :D . After looking at the side shot -behind the scenes pic of the car, I think I got lucky, the most noticable cracks & indents are where the red paint would go, which saves me a lot of time & hassle, otherwise I would have to sand the whole car down, filler & sand the bad spots, respray the car & hope I dont' get any "orange peel" or something.. but this way I can skip the sanding & repainting & just fix the spots, sand them down & go over them when I add the red.

anybody got an image of the "force 10" symbol with a white background so I can make a decal?

thanks.

I decided my original headlight set up sucked, so I cut them off & re-did them, now they sit back a little further & don't look like the car's cross-eyed anymore. while I had the body off the chassis, I added the warning lights to the parcel shelf, after i got it back together agian I painted the lenses on the roof lights, orange & dark blue. For the past couple hours I've been working on the engine bay, putting in the master cyl, battery & stuff, also adding a couple things to try to fill the empty space around the engine.

the armourer wrote: Someone more versed in Aussie Mopars please correct me if I'm wrong, but was the standard 4-speed tranny used a New Process A-833 like in the US cars? If so, I've never heard of a 'mirror-image' 833 where the shifter location and the side controls are on the right side. Unless it's a different type of internal rail tranny, you will need to have the extension.

i think they just used control arms to transfer controls to the rhs. could be wrong tho.

i've got some reasonable images of the logo, i'll try to remember to send them to you....
