THAT COLOR POPS!!!!!! I won't ask how many hours went in to block sanding but hats off for a job well done. Body lines, gaps, all perfect. That doesn't happen by accident. Any interior shots? Let's see that pistol grip shifter. Great color combination from top to bottom....thumbs up...........congrats on the well deserved awards. Cars like this make choosing awards an easy job when they are done so well.

Greg...Greg need to stop raising the bar of achievement on this car. Everytime I see it..IT MAKES ME GREEN (sorry) WITH ENVY. I think it's time you moved on to another project. I have a 64 Corvette that can use your help. I'll drop it off and use your Chevelle while you bring my Vette to the level of your Chevelle. Whatya think? 2 weeks? 3 Max? Take your time.
