    The last time I touch DDS was one year ago......well this Coupe has turned into a large monkey on my back that I just cannot carry anymore and or avoid. So I really need to stay focused and get this Coupe done once and for all..A few weeks ago I took the Drag 94 carbs I machined for the Truck and set them up on the Coupe, I was extremely impressed with how they functioned on the Hemi.I have since tinkered w/ the carbs and the throttle response is on par with the locals running injection on alky..it's that snappy...

    I decided to just take a door off and start w/ it....Everywhere I look I see more work so I decided to just work on a part..I built this coupe like a small tank, so I need to put it on a diet and trim the fat....Their are more holes to come. I am only getting started...Like I said it's not much, but just needed a starting point again and to revive the juices and get them flowing again..I replaced the the lower section of the door and was going to remove all the door panel area metal and cover the door panel area with aluminum and bead roll something neat...but figured this would be better and more purposeful...and older looking...........Littleman...it's just a start..You just have to love working on Ohio sheetmetal !...Off to the sandblaster once they are finished..

    That coupe is so bitchin'!!! Thanx for the update. By the way, do you use roto bits for all those holes or just regular hole saws?
