Hello from SW Ontario

Post by Moparnutt408 on Fri Feb 06, 2015 3:04 pm

Hi guys, just found this site posted at FABO
I see some familiar names here. Mine was Moparnutt340 but figured I would change it now since I'm no longer running a 340


MY RIDE.........................
1971 Dart Swinger

Do you have any pictures of the mini tub? I moved the springs in on my duster with an offset spring hanger kit. I am pretty sure i can fit a 15x 10 wheel with 5.5"BS and a 29x9 drag slick it measures out to a 12.5 section width.

I've never tried this before bu here we go. I'm going to try posting a link to a photobuket album that shows pretty much the whole step by step of the mini tub
Someone please let me know if this works. I can see it because mine logs in automatically, others might not be able to view it, I don't know

If you can view it, its backwards, start at last page ....................

Nice job however I'm going to guess that you don't get a very good ride on our streets here in Ontario. But I really do like the stance.

Believe it or not, the car rides like a dream. Its just a bit tighter than before but otherwise rides nice and smooth. In fact takes bumps better than my brand new car

That was just last winters project in those pics doing the underside of the car.
I will get the pics loaded from this winter soon as the rest of the car is getting redone.
I have been going steady on the car since mid Aug.2014, Its almost ready for paint now
The car was completely stripped to bare metal and is now 100% rust free

Lol, Its not in the car yet. Car is getting the body n paint done right now so the engine will be going in prob in April.
I can say, Mike was pretty easy to deal with and after talking with him, he really knows his stuff.
My build ended up costing $8600.US and I picked it up in person since he's not far from me.
The power curve on the dyno was pretty impressive ! I'm itching to get it into the car

Hey Dave, I planned to have it done for spring but not looking like that's going to happen. My buddy has the car now doing the body n paint and I prob won't get it back until early may. Its completely stripped so its going to take a bit to carefully reassemble it since I don't have Fooses team here to do it in a week, lol

As soon as I can get out to Hamilton with it I'll let you know. Can't wait to get the stroker put in the car, she'll be wild for sure

Here's a link to what has been done so far this year. Starts at the last page, its all backwards
Redoing the Dart 2015

Thanks Hibred, The pics posted so far have been from last year. The body n paint were not as good as it looks in pics so its all stripped down getting a new coat
This year it will be a completely different car, Viper Blue Pearl

Welcome to our growing Canadian Mopar site, come down to the Maritimes and see how great our weather can be and you can't beat the south eastern NB hospitality.

I drove out to Cape Breton 2 years ago for a weeks vacation. Didn't want to come back home.
I tell ya 1 week is not nearly enough time, there is so much to see.
