    Got most of the chop done in this pic,still lots to do though....

    Heard about a few young hot shot kids who lay on some killa primer so off it went to get some color:p :D
    This is my 5 yo son Blaze and my 2 yo daughter Ember preppin it:cool:
    [​IMG]
    They got Riley(3 yo) to come over and help out too
    Finger paintin does pay off you know:D
    [​IMG]
    They even conned aunty Christy into helpin out,they run a pretty tight shop,,,errr I mean yard:)
    [​IMG]
    Remember like I've always said,"Prep it with an Axe,Paint it with a Broom"
    In other words drive the fuckin car instead of just lookin at it:D
    [​IMG]
    Testin it out,this was the 2nd day drivin it(thursday) and I drove it to Osoyoos(bout a 8 hour trip the next day without any issues)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    I was thrashin on it so much to get it driveable I didn't even have time to put the wide whites on it before we left on our trip,so here it is now.....

    And with my 55 Olds caps.
    Now I can finish off all the lil chit.

    How much did you chop out of the A and B pillars? The proportions look great to me.

    My kid is dieing to paint my car. Must be all that painting in kindergarten. We literally have drawers full of paintings my 6 yr old has done in his 2 years of preK and K. I never painted in kindergarten. Was read at, ate stale cookies and took naps. I'm not sure they got the intended result with all this art stuff in grade school now. "Screw higher education Dad! I'm gonna be a grease monkey!" LOL!

    I'm at the stripped and taking the body off stage. I'm definitely going to have a brush on primer "field day" at my house! Come to think of it he has a coupla' aunts that can paint too!

    Great car. And great pics. You should be proud - for many reasons.
