2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Salvage Donor
December 30, 2014
Over the years, we at Cleveland Power and Performance, have transformed many wrecked vehicles into running and driving go-karts for use in resto-mods and custom builds. Follow this blog to see how we turned this lightly burnt car into the prefect platform for any Mopar enthusiast’s project, a 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Salvage Donor. We have seen our Viper donors used in some very wild applications. They have proven to be pretty versatile chassis’ for some of the coolest builds we have seen. Many of these Viper donors also end up on other continents, burning rubber abroad.
We start each and every donor build by striping away of the unnecessary clutter to see what we have to work with. On this viper, all of the body panels and exterior components were removed to reveal the heart and sole of the vehicle. We then remove the drive train to send to our engine room for inspection. The engine and transmission were inspected for any damage. Both were signed off on by our highly trained technicians.
We check all of the suspension components to make sure they are true and straight and replace any parts that are damaged. We do the same with any electronics and wiring that need repaired. On this particular Viper we replaced the left hand front suspension components due to fire damage. We also repaired some harness that was lightly burnt from the fire. The outer cowl, dash, air-box, and several other interior components were also replaced. We ordered and programmed a new engine computer and replaced the radiator with a brand new unit.
Please stayed tuned to our blog for the conclusion of this 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Salvage Donor build! The car should be running and driving in no time at all. Once she is done, she will be offered for sale so let us know if this donor might work in your project.
