    Well, after a few minor set backs, and plenty of rain, I finally got the bomb drivable.
    Here it is, just have to stripe the hood, pop some more trim on and at some point get the interior done....but that don't hinder driving it ;)

    Thanks to all who shared your input and especially Alex Gambino and Phil (RustyPipes)

    Thanks guys.....it's nothing crazy, but I think it's tastefull anyhow....
    The red flake on the roof pops pretty nice in the sun, but the cam cant pick it up....

    37Hotrod......Those plates become toe cutters if you happen to be standing to close on air out ;)
     
  17. May have missed an earlier post on this but what's under the hood? Photos, if you have any, would be great.

    Very cool. I suggest black diamond tuck for the interior.
