Love those pics dude..
Man that's one beautiful little Chevy! Awesome indeed!
Normunds - thank you for the beautyful pictures. And thank you all for the kind words.
That is for sure, One Sweet Ride
Dinner cruise with friends
Damn car looks great!
Car turned out beautiful Hotik. Just found this thread as I'm looking at building an salty Chevy kustom like this and am searching for ideas. How much did you end up cutting out of the top? It's dead-on perfect. Also, molded rear fenders really clean up the car. Beautiful work!
Thanks Rory. I did cut the 3" from a-pillar and 3.5" from c (difficult to measure). Just look the door window frame - originally it is higher from rear. It was my starting point/view to remove this "factory mistake".
Baad news guys! damn neighbour
I need advice.
What to think of these tires? cheapest that i found.
Or I should buy firestone classic styled? 6.40/6.70
I know that the both would look better than portawalls or painted tires - that i have at the moment. In view of price and the things I would take the first ones.
What did your bloody neighbour do????

Look, there is a blue Kia mirrored. It had the same scratches on a same level like my chevy. Poor maneuverability.
Car is on winter vacation now.
I have to create new todo list.
The first thing which I already done was that I put front leafs together like they were - front was rose about 2.5"
There are a bunch of things to do
Hopefully I can find time to start job inside the car in this winter also.
And meanwhile, a picture of which it was before, and now
Nice....can't wait to see it all done.
I have Firestones,, and they are so darn hard to clean the black part, I hate them. IMO
I would go with the Firestones. They just look so damn good.
6.70s would suit your car well... 3.25" whitewall.
You gotta get some solid steel wheels or full wheel covers!!
Beautiful car man, you've done good!
