    Jaysus Matt, it's that loud with the under car exhaust? Wonder what the lakes pipes woulda sounded like? BTW, what happened to them? I've been following your build for awhile and saw the new thread. Thanks for grouping all the previous pics together. Somebody did some hellacious block sanding on that super smooth quarter panel. So what is the total time to this project including the absence for the Chevelle build?

    well after all the work bill put into the paint i couldnt see myself dumping the exhaust right on the body... that being said i have a few ideas for some new headers...as for the build time...i dont even want to think about it...its been off and on the whole time...

    Very cool focused build. Exceptional style. I wish I had half your talent when I was a punk kid.

  12. Awesome coupe, Tindall, very nice.
    On another note, I can't believe no one posted some "cant believe you cut up that beautiful stocker, should have left it like it was, gotta save `em fer the future" bs....Just sayin', that's all. Chop, chop, snip, snip. Anyone can leave it stock or restore...It takes a MAN to cut one up. It takes an artist to cut one up and make it look good.

    Well, i am really likeing the rear tires, but those front ones... they look kinda sketchy. What brakes are you gonna use with them? A long pole with a bit of rubber on the end, push forward for stop kind of thing? :rolleyes:

    Looks good.

    Wow, I think you knocked it out of the park on this one Matt. The work and the attention to detail and getting things right are amazing.
