Well the paint is stuffed. It's had a dodge respray and never got a clear coat. So new paint and bodywork is a definate. Just gunna make it a neat cruiser. it needs all new suspension and some bigger/wider wheels. And it needs to sound like a 8 ... at the moment everyone thinks its a 6 cyl, so a dual exhaust is also needed. ... GT bonnet and GT grille. I'm leaving the interior as is... even the push button am radio.

Yeah you say that now but like most of us, you'll have the 'power bug' bite you in the ass to hot this thing up to the hilt!
If you can restrain yourself to make this 'just' a street cruiser I commend ya. :)
