To bring my A990 home, we drove through a snow
storm with temperatures between 10 and 20 degrees F;
that morning it was nearer to zero.

After racing the car, I decided it was time for paint. My luck with painters has been very good. But they have all been extremely slow.
When I stripped the car, I found two things: the wheel wells had been ball peen altered and before the last paint job, someone used a course grinder to strip the paint.

I fixed the wheel well openings from a donor car. My painter fixed the course grinder work with a light coat of bondo and lots of straight board work.

Next is assembly. As you can see the is a project in work.
Thanks, Denny!

Neither sleet, nor snow or freezing temps will deter a '62-'65 Mopar fan from getting their torque monster!

Good going!  smile!
