Looks real nice and real clean. Interesting interior and dash. I like it. What are the specs for the engine and drive train?

Also an interesting color scheme on the grille. cool.

That thing look's GREAT! Good job! I noticed the air cleaner lid, my father-in law was telling me why he took his off. (67 Chevelle) He was telling me that if by chance the motor sneezes that same air cleaner lid has been known to catch on fire. After the GREAT work you did, I wouldn't like to here about it. The other thing we were talking about was the CLEAR see thought plugs (float level) for Holley carbs, people have had them break and leak fuel till it is to late. JMO! :thumbsup:

Alright, so I have an appointment to get my interior done on Monday and can pick it back up Friday!! I'll take pictures of the install process (like I do with almost everything lol). I got a really good deal with this guy and I hope it turns out the way I want it. Total price including install is 1100 and that includes: tint (5%), alarm system, full custom made interior capret, custom headliner, custom trunk carpet, and installing my speekers and kickplates.

Quick question about the black front trim on the hood and around the headlight? Was it painted normally? A Base/Clear paint job? And did you do anything to the original metal/chrome or just paint right over it?

Thanks

The Trim comes chrome, I sanded it pretty good and painted it with primer then black paint and then a semi gloss top coat. If you look around the side windows you can see that, that trim is also black.
