VERY nice chop! Looks just right.
Patching rust on the front fenders.....
Frenching the headlights....
Chopping the garnish, old and new .....
I've got way more time than I want to admit in these damn garnish moldings.
Looks good !
Really nice chop. Flows perfectly. Great job
Nice metal work......... cool chop ,nice proportions!
Nice work Rich.
Are those OEM headlight rings you are using on frenching?
Yep, stock rings.
Amazing transformation........... that will be one sweet looking shoebox..
Great work. Great progress! Looking forward to seeing what that headlight treatment looks like. Thanks for all the pics.
Thanks for your answer,keep up the good work!
Looks really good.Love the profile.Just read the whole thread for the first time.And I understand your comment about the garnish moldings.I kept putting off doing mine for a LONG time!
Nice proportional chop! What are you running for side trim?
Keep up the great work.
Just spent the last hour reading all 12 pages .. Great work !!
Not sure how I missed this thread. Work is awesome. I hope my shoebox turns out this nice.
The fit of the deck lid was horrible.
The opening was a full one inch too narrow for the lid.
I ended up slicing the opening down both sides to make it the right size.
There was also some rot in the bottom edge of the lid.
I patched the rust, and replaced the center section with a new piece.
And mounted the trunk latch, it's powered, the solenoid is removed.
Panel gaps for the trunk are now pretty decent.
Looks good man, keep at it.
Wow. Looks great. Definitely going to be referencing this thread when I start on mine.
It's a lot of work to make the gaps right , but it's worth the effort , IMHO . Good job .
I ditched the 49 trunk prop rod for two 50 trunk props.
They work great.
Next, I cleaned up the front suspension, and gave it a coat of paint.
I also installed the 2 inch drop spindles, and 2 inch drop springs.
My donor small block looks like it needs a mullet.
We can do better....
Clean, clean, clean.....
A little paint, and she's looking pretty nice...
Looks nice,what kind of oil pan you are going to use?
Nova oil pan?
It's an S10 clip, no crazy fitment issues.
Stock oil pan works fine.
