Thanks guys,
Those lights are pretty sweet so far, I'll see how they hold up.on sale at harbor freight I figured at $5 each I'd take 2 probably should have got more, may go back. Little pocket flashlight also nice.

Power steering and almost power brakes...
Few more parts on order  And this thing may actually start, move, steer, and stop under its own power For the 1st time in probably 25-30 years at least.ccd0f754ec872ceac4f7b39b39d44938 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)6fd1cbea217cfd6bb0303e197a26ac94 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)b6664b73d026f629a9ba9e3c65aaf376 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)c61e98d5057c1cf137e19cec128372f1 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)8f63243a3de8222806c2ba0333d98dce in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)

Thanks!
While waiting on parts I was looking at more parts so since I was waiting I figured I'd order more, I don't think this will ever end. One part was the  Shifter linkage torque shaft. I  Ordered new bushings while I was at it and had it apart Then I was thinking about painting some pieces and looking at where the shaft rides on the bushing it was all chewed up about .040  Kind of hard to see in the pictures I  almost just painted it but I figured I might as well  Weld it up and re machine it to size for a nice fit. That was an unplanned project.9d85e500244e1b99e8f71013399ce1d8 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)217cab1bc939105bcda8f4a7142cca7b in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)e4861f9d8c9d5a284079d5f4b03b6620 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)3a10b7e6544d23c695b84581a2319a95 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)5de39a9ae7ff554b29a8ab7310234e3a in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)

That was a good idea. That's the reason the slap sticks don't adjust correctly sometimes.

Yeah a little paint and these should work nicely. Definitely worth the repair time and really not that bad to do,and I really couldn't see a reason to replace the bushings if the shaft was worn.eb0a9a360b3ebc58b49c40db8901fbd9 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)8524faa85b7217142d09a757f678ae13 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)0ae2404e13c781f6bb896262533c0bf7 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)1a5618acc4d9d772b2fb7a59c2150928 in 70 Challenger (someday) in Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS)

I'm beginning to think one of those powder coating systems might be the way to go for some of these small brackets and things Any thoughts on that or anybody know about what it might cost to have things like this powder coated?  And watch out for that,

Awesome work your doing there.I get motivated just reading your post. Is that the original steering box to the car? I ask because I also owe a 70 challenger and have a steering box with a similar date code , I just spent $400 to rebuild it, only to learn it may not be original to the car. Thanks and keep up the awesome job.

That is not a 70 PS box.  It's late 1973 so I believe it uses the larger pitman arm. 

The steering column is also not 1970

Cool build.

What paint did you use for the Plum Crazy?

Dupont chromabase single stage for the insides, someday the outside will get a basecoat/clearcoat.

The column is a 1973.

Powder Coating is not expensive to get into. You can buy a gun from Eastwood or HF, I have both. Main thing is the oven, which you can pick up at a Thrift Store, I was lucky enough to get a laboratory oven when my company shut down,( Dont get me started on that) Powder can be bought at many different places. But you will need a blast cabinet or know what chemicals to use. I just use the blast cabinet.
Get in, I'll drive

Thanks timbbuc2

I have a blast cabinet that should work and for some reason today  I started looking at ovens.

I do have another question for you guys for some reason I'm thinking I should have a 3 pin neutral park starting switch Mine is only a single pin not sure what that's all about... any thoughts? I suppose it's a different year thing? It does work.
Here are some more photos just for fun.

Yes you need a three pin.  The one pin is 69 and older.
