Should be home by Monday. Then I can get going on the interior. Today, I put 5 gallons of fuel in it and cranked it for 10 to 12 seconds with the coil disconnected. Then I reconnected the coil, turned the key, and it fired right up after sitting for almost 2 years.

Found these two things in one of my containers of extra clips, bolts, screws, etc. Anyone recognize them? Where they attach? What they're for?

Man, that's beautiful. Any way you can post a sound clip of the engine and exhaust? I know I'm not the only one that wants to hear that bad boy running.

Maybe after I figure out why there's no power at the coil in start or run. And then figure out how to post a video clip.

Have you checked the ballast resistor? I know it's probably a stupid suggestion, but you can try bypassing it and running a hot wire from the positive post on the battery to the positive post on the coil and then jumping the starter relay to crank it.

I am running an HEI distributor so there is no ballast. Even if I wasn't, the ballast would be bypassed with the key turned to start.

Since only one hole on the package shelf is a speaker hole and the other is for the defogger, I wanted the screw heads for the second speaker to sit flush so I cobbled together a tool to dimple the flat sheetmetal.

When I realized that my spare was almost 30 years old, it was time to buy a new one for the next 30 years. Found a dealer in Texas who had one of these left and got it for $60, including shipping.

I got the inside of the trunk finished. I found some carpet underlay and cut a piece to fit the package shelf, glued it on, and installed the shelf. Now, I'm not sure the order of how it's supposed to be assembled. I have the interior quarter trim on top of the package shelf but I'm wondering if it should go under.

I bet that guy from Graveyard Carz would know off the top of his head.

For as long as they've been in the spotlight, I don't recall seeing any Graveyard Carz/Mark Worman cars getting top awards at Mopar OEM judging.
Have they and I just missed it?

I think from what I've seen on other Mopars, the trim goes on top the package shelf panel.
I say that, but I've never checked inside a Charger of this vintage though.
