Since my brother recently moved to Hawaii, the blog’s been down for a couple of weeks. Now the server’s arrived and is back up and runnin’ again.
By the way, check out my brother’s blog Patrik’s Projects!
Last week I went to the garage and started removing the old trunk weatherstrip. I think they used something like 5 layers of superglue to get them there back in the day because first removing the dried rubber and after that the glue requires quite some work.
Yesterday the mailman brought me another package from across the sea. This time I got the 1972 Dodge service manual. I’m pretty sure this book will come to good use, over and over and over again…
This weekend me and daddy-o actually got some stuff done.
As the snow’s probably here any day now, I decided to park it for the winter and put her up on jack stands.
Then we got a good chance to roll in underneath the car to check the condition there as well, and I couldn’t be happier. It looks great!
After that, we took away the tank because some of the rubber hoses down there looked like they needed to be replaced by new ones.
Got a box from Dalhems with new door- and trunk weatherstrips. Since the long cold scandinavian winter soon is here, I decided it’s time to start with the stuff that needs to be done until spring….which is only like 8 months away.
The stock exhaust sounds kinda wimpy, so I’ve decided to get this mean sounding system from Magnaflow.
Will it sound mean enough?
I really like this instruction posted on the trunk lid, describing how to use the jack stowed in the trunk. The cool thing is that the jack is still there!
About one and a half week ago, me and my dad drove halfway across Sweden to have a look at a ’72 Challenger for me. The idea was to check out the car, then go back home and think about it.
Was that the case? No, after about 20 minutes of inspectin’ it high and low, I took it for a spin and I was hooked.
So, I ended up buying this beauty and had to take it with me. About 10 hours later it was at home!
This blog/whatever is to keep track of what i’m up to with the car. This is my first classic car, so if you have any ideas or tips for me, please let me know!
