Lock washers won't work.

I double nut my exhaust pipe connections too.

I also don't have flat connections with the flanges. I weld up the flanges so the leading pipe goes thru its flange and into trailing flange when you connect things up. Keeps things aligned and prevents gasket blowout.

Have been slowly working on some small bits.
I removed the Headlight Switch / Wiper Switch Dash Bezel..I made a Proper Tool to get the wiper and headlight Switch Lock nuts off. I painted the Dash Bezel a year or 2 back and it originally looked like this piece too.

It is kind of a cool and somewhat more scarce piece as most '63-'64 darts that I have seen (especially GT's) Had the pushbutton with the buttons and Park lever where this big gray Block off plate is.

Before:

All that groovy '60's Chrysler chromed plastic was faded away into a smokey yellow hue that just looks dated and old.
Image

So like many other bits inside and out on the car - Satin black to the rescue!
Image
It's not perfect, but I am the one who will see it the most and I can live with it.

'Till next time!

Here is a blast form the Past.

Found this Picture from the Day I Picked up the car from my dear friend's house in NC... He Gracisouly Picked up and Hauled the Dart to his house from Southern Georgia and Stored if for a few months for me.
It was an October hurricane weekend, and There was rain all day.. But this is how the Grüne Hölle project started life with me... getting towed up the mountain on the open trailer with 'Ol Blue.
Image
I have Plans to work on and upgrade the car this winter but have been getting sidetracked by other small projects and "deals".
I did get the Painted Wiper/Washer and Headlight Switch bezel plate installed.

Hope to get back to it soon.

You Betcha'

Found some new PA Twisty Routes (look at the favorite driving roads post) for the next time you are in town with some svelte slant 6 A body.

On Saturday I towed up and down the newfound route with 'Ol Blue and a new blue car on the trailer.. It will be more fun with Grüne Hölle.
