    I have a 68 Charger getting ready to go to paint and wondering if I should paint the wheel wells QQ1 blue like the body or black. I'm afraid if I paint them the body color they will stick out too much. I'm not using any undercoating so the color will matter. Does anybody know how they came from the factory?
    Thanks

      Wheel wells got dip primer, overspray & undercoated... Under body undercoating was optional, wheel wells always got undercoated to prevent rocks flung by the tires causing outward dents..
