John... I am gone for a few days and you practically have this one done ;) . You have done some beautiful work my friend. I need lessons from you on doing the Chrome Alclad...lol all of it is just gorgeous. I need to do some spoon tests and now that I got my airbrush back from having to send it to badger I think I will get better results now. anyway this build is coming along great and keep up that awesome work you do!

Another beautiful build John, I'm amazed at the speed that you can knock out builds with such great detail.

That is some really fine work but that tranny has a split personality...it's got great shift linkage and cooling lines with a dipstick.

I would have sent you an auto trans if I'd known you needed one... I have an IROC-Z that has no body, so parting out the engine/tranny would have been no problem for me.

Can't wait to see how the rest finishes out, like everyone else here I'm guessing it will be off the hook. :)

Just not enough words to describe this masterpiece.
I just about get as far as ooooh and aaaah and then start drooling on my keyboard.
Very nice. This is Art with a big A.

Awesome work, as always John... A quick question if you don't mind... Why didn't you use Brass Metalizer paint for the grille shell and headlights, etc., instead of the clear yellow that you used...???

John, you by no means messed up.... I just wondered why you didn't use the metalizer paint... It looks cool the way you did it...
