Default Duster Resto-mod Build

Hello lateral-G members, I been following several build here and decided to start posting pics of my build. I purchased this car in September of 2010 and spent the first several months just replacing panels and fixing rust, I tknow from the begining I was leaning toward a mild pro touring build I wanted the lowered look, upgraded suspension and some modern convenience's what I am ending up with is more of a Resto Mod. The car has a custom built Triangulated rear suspension and also a custom front coil over conversion K member built around the car not the car built around it...basically I got my car at the desired stance and first and designed the suspension around it.
I have several pages of the build on another forum but I feel that my car would be better suited here since I've drawn several design inspirations from builds here. The car has a 8 3/4 rear with a 3.91 detroit tru trac center, future plans for the driveline will be a old fashion 340(stroked to 416) and a 727 torqueflight...

Nice. I love those cars. I so wanted to buy the Lime green one the guy did with a late model hemi and t56 that was for sale last year but I already have too much $$ in my projects.

I like the direction you are going. The old school 340s were great little mils. Top that baby off with an AAR tripower...........

Love the looks of that front suspension, looking to do something like that on my Barracuda. You have some more details?

I just parted out a 73 and thought for half a second how cool it could be...must, stay, focused.
Cool lookin ride.
