I'm sure most of you have seen our first project, the 300P Suicide Coupe, if not check it out here http://www.300cforums.com/forums/general-discussion/76034-sema-build-chrysler-300p-srt-coupe.html, here http://www.300cforums.com/forums/general-discussion/81827-suicide-2-door-300-a.html and here http://www.300cforums.com/forums/chrysler-300-picture-media-post/82619-2-door-coupe.html. Now it's on to a new one.
We're taking an 06 Magnum that will be getting a 2 door conversion, and Nomad inspired rear glass section with tilted B-pillar. Add in a 300 front end, a modified TZD 300 body kit including a extra long deep dish grill, and TZD Firepower hood. Throw in our very own Halo shaved door handle kit, shaved belt molding kit, and fuel filler relocation kit, molded tail lights and a split hatch round out the rear end. Air Lift suspension on USW staggered 22" Extravagents round things out. Cover it all in Lamborghini Matte Ballon White with Super Jet Black roof and highlights. The car was originally a 2.7 and we'll be swapping it out with a 3.5 and possibly adding some power to that.
We'll keep this updated with build pics as it progresses.
As it rolled into the shop
Laying out the plan for the rear window
First thing to do is dissect the B-pillar by taking the outer skin off
leaving just the inner support
so we cut that out
and fill in the inner section first
then close it all up
leaving a nice big opening
then we set the b-pillar back into it's new home
the new door skins.
Out with the 2.7
dropped in some brakes off a 5.7 and the Air Lift suspension
Driver side inner door skin is extended
Just need to stretch the window frame and set the angle for the rear post and b-pillar and we'll be ready to slap a skin on it.
Starting to make some progress finally. Fab'd up the new, slimmer, door frame
This rear part of the door frame was made pretty much entirely hand formed
New B-pillar angle
Some pie cuts to get it into shape, now just need to put it all back together
We thought with some small changes we might be able to get away with running a flat piece of glass in the rear, but if you look at our tape line and see how much the body curves over that distance, there is just no way. Yeah! more custom glassat:
Just a reinforcement bar, and the skin is ready to go on
No more C-pillar
