    ABSOLUTELY love everything about your car! Great job... I just bought myself a 62 Impala wagon and hope to make it half as cool as yours. I hope to see this car in person sometime in the near future. NICELY DONE!

    I just found these pics here fellas. These photo were from when I was building the original plans to place a 283 under the hood. These were the Alan Grove brackets I purchased and then added my .2 cents of creativity to them.

    Mocked up in raw steel.

    After I was satisfied with the outcome, I sent these out the chromers for some "bling" treatment.

    I then hit the recessed hole areas with some "one shot" pinstripe paint.

    I think this is a great idea to carry over the engine theme into the interior. To my eyes, the pedals look a little too blingy. I'm not always a fan of "patinated" cars, but this one really speaks to me. Maybe because it reminds me so much of the old SWs I rode in as a kid. And those window decals really add the frosting to the cake. You need one more thing, though. Roll a pack of these into the arm of the left sleeve of your T-shirt and hang it out the window the next time you go for a cruise:

    :D Thank you.

    VHT GOLD FLAKE

    That is custom one of a kind mixed color that was made by a good friend who PPG color scanned my original steering wheel and then modified it from there. It is PPG Deltron Concept and I do have the color mix formula and about a pint left. I named it "Old Gold". :D

    Absolutely love the whole package. Experienced on the outside, Clean and Classy on the inside and the wheels are just a tipoff that there's more here than first meets the eye... (Smile when you say 'Recession Rod' pardner.)

    Could you update us on how the clear is holding up?
