    I've been following these video's too. None of this really surprises me. To be honest, most of the time what surprises is me is people who tell you it can't be done without any first hand knowledge whatsoever. And who ever looked at a car someone just bolted stuff together and said "wow, that guy is awesome" ?...you respect people more when they do the things that people said "it can't be done". This guy took the time to figure it out but largely bolted stuff together. Something anybody with enough money and time can do. No disrespect at all, its great and he is obviously talented with his other projects and body work. However, the guy who puts the dash in the car that it DOESN'T bolt in....that is the guy I give credit to. The guy who welded the right parts together, who made brackets, who fabricated his way to something nobody else has or can have.

    Move past bolts on and take some risks! You might find you learned something :P

    I give him props for figuring out all the wiring. That is probably my single biggest PITA, hate anything to do with electrical. Not that I cant, just dont enjoy it. I Also hate bodywork. Basically anything tedious and time consuming. Which is weird because I enjoy putting engines together, etc. Lol

    This guy is going places. Even if it's just to say he did it.

    Gotta hand it to the guy - he did what few have attempted and put it all on video including his screw-ups.

    I do find watching the videos difficult because he's not very good at communicating, his videos are jumpy and the frames are not always in sequence and he talks endlessly about trivial stuff instead of the meat and potatoes of the job. I wish that he had a cameraman, better lighting and an editor. The entertainment value would have been an order of magnitude higher.
    Even if he did it like another car-youtuber I enjoy - Mustie1 - who videos himself solo but with far better camera angles and a better story.

    In any event, I think this kid did an excellent job. There are a number of loose ends still, like what about the headliner, the gap between the dash and the windshield, the door trim (why take the Magnum trim off if he didn't have Charger trim to replace it)?

    I'll keep watching. This is very relevant to my interests, although my old girl might not take such a swap and remain intact. The ol' 2005 RT is 15 years old now, over 320,000 km, and things are getting a bit weathered. 15 Canadian winters will do that no matter how good your undercoating is.

    Nailed it

    The rear side window too!! lol
    The passenger airbag looked popped on the "new" dash too. But yeah...I know he gutted it, but he could still add some interior stuff back in to make it a little more finished for the time being.
    I'm curious to see if he'll actually do the body work and paint it though

    I smiled watching this saga unfold knowing it would finally push the concept that our platform's components are interchangeable.

    I wish he had volunteered all the details, especially the more difficult things he ran into that he had to adapt or modify. That would have made it outstanding.

    btw; i think he has help on both the front and back end...

    I randomly found this on YouTube or maybe it found me, lol, with all the Magnum research I've been doing lately. Glad it was posted up here!!

    I may do the rear subframe scatpack swap someday.
