Eric,
Thanks for stopping by yesterday with the Challenger, It really sounded good when you left....
To everyone else looking at theses pictures let me say that there's no way the computer screen can capture just how good this car looks in person....the color, the fit and finish and details are stunning.  Stop by anytime.

Thank you Ross.  Like wise, stop over anytime you are out in the neighborhood.

Very nice!

Can you provide some details on the speakers in the toe kick panels?  On the drivers side isn't the speaker grille close to/conflicting with the parking brake?

Hello Larry,
The kick panels are from Classic Industries, seeing the parking brake was moved into the console it was no issue.

Thank you! Relocation of the parking brake to the console definitely solves the interference problem!

Absence of the rear bumper guards is a cool touch :twothumbsup: ....I think if I was going to change one thing, I think I would have gone with the 17" rally wheels from YearOne, other than that it looks incredible  :drooling:

Thank you ANLAUTO,
YES, it was kicked around to go with that or some Magnum 500's.  There are so many wheel combo's to choose from and in the end it comes down to making that final decision.  With it being a resto- mod we felt that was it.  They are 18" 245/40/18 Front and 285/40/18 on the back.  We wanted to fill out the wheel well as much as possible.

Very nice! love the stance and the colour.

I noticed you kept the stock seats. I kept them on mine too but thinking of replacing them to stay in the spirit of restomod.

Yes, If I can find custom seats that give me the same ride height without doing major modifications I may look at that.  Then we would need to get an upholstery shop to match the back seats to the fronts. :ohyeah:

Check out the Corvette seats I put in my Barracuda, fits great, very comfortable and adjustable, slight mods of the brackets only.

I wish I had a pair without the Z06 logo though.
