    Thanks, I appreciate that

    Real good, I've been putting it off for too long. I pulled out atleast 8 bugs, with tape. Had it's fair share of issues, but I am satisfied!

    Keep up the good work!

    You've got some cool toys back there to play with.. The roof looks good too! What color are you going to shoot the bottom?

    I sprayed the firewall, quite a while ago. But there were holidays that needed attention. Hardener, sure makes the paint sticky! Now I know why they wear full body painters suits. Glad you're happy!

    It's amazing how close the the dash color is to the engine. Far enough away, it'll be harder to figure it out. Thanks again, Jay

    My Uncle pulled out a 57 Chev roller frame, for a 57 2dr wagon he's heard about. So he's been working on a trailing arm set up, from the 60-70 Chev trucks.

    The whole Elco will be this off-white, except where the Impala insert is on the rear qtr. It'll be pure white, with mother of pearl!

    That white sure looks good against the dash, or the other way around. Good choice of colors man!!

    I laugh about it, cos I pulled out at least 8 or 9 bugs. I dream of a spray booth and perfect paint jobs. that's why I just laugh about it now.

    I likes 'em, too.. Thanks!
