Paint preparation

Things may seen a little slow here now and then but currently, many hours of work are being put into the bodywork of the 'Cuda at the shop.
The roof has been sorted out - there was a slight dent popping out near the rear window - and the quarters have recieved a first going over.

Off for paint

I had Ernst and his exquisite "" service take the 'Cuda to the paint shop today. Riding in style! Hood, fenders and other bits that need color are already there, now the rest of the bodywork will be straightend out and painted.

One more shot on the highway. I was lucky to catch a day without rain, one of the few in this rather wet year around these parts.

Looking back

I've decided to go with the additional passenger side rear view mirror. The car was originally not equipped with one but I do not want to miss the comfort and added safety of such an option.
Made a template to find the correct location for the mounting holes, taking the driver side measurements.

The flange compression insert nuts for the new mirror installed.
