What did you use to remove the remainder of that old, crusty woodgrain applique? Looks like much of it was already gone.
3M makes a rubber wheel you use with an electric drill, works great. It’s like a giant pencil eraser of hard rubber. Takes about two of those wheels to do a fusie Monaco wagon.

Took the car for a ride today, felt good to stretch her legs a little. Helped a friend move some furniture, found I need to get the rear seat to fold into the well, so that will be looked at in the coming days. She needs a bath before she goes into storage.

I like your car, it’s a great color and style. The aftermarket wheels and raised letter tires are perfect. And Mopar road wheels are perfect too. You can’t go wrong.

Swapped the weird adapter for the fan, and installed a spare clutch fan assembly. Gone is the howling that made the engine sound like it was going to blow up. Exhaust noise sounds like a rod is knocking, so it's annoying in a different way! But it is much more tolerable.

Gave it a bath before I put it in storage.

I have plenty of room to walk around the car, always makes for an easier entry when it's time to retrieve the car in the spring..
