Sorry if I missed a previous post, but why didn't you just get prothane mount inserts instead of use that window urethane?

Is it supposed to work better than the inserts?

little pic update. i was at the in-laws today working on the r/t to get it on the ground so i can move it to the grass so they can re-pave the driveway. i got the rear wheels on, hood and fenders. a nice little chrome charger grill it too (its more of a joke then anything). forgot my spring compressor so i cant reinstall the front struts yet...but soon.

teh wife really wants a fast neon to cool with us next year at carlisle so now i have to get this car running.....for her.

on to pics!

Don't worry, I'm still working on the R/T. Might be hitting up the junk yard this weekend to get some much needed parts. May even get the motor in this weekend. I don't want to rush myself though I'm excited to drive her. I'll have brakes, brake lines and tires this week. Continue to follow me on Facebook for updated pics.[/img]

ZOMG UPDATE:

Over the last few weeks I've installed new f/r ss brake lines, hawk pads and resurfaced srt rotors and srt calipers and temp srt wheels w/new tires. Yesterday I installed the motor/trans. Today I dropped the gas tank w/4gal-4 year old gas and I'm glad I did. Look at whats left of the spoolboy fuelines. The filter didn't look any better.
