Excellent body work. The overall profile looks really cool. Can't wait to see where you go next.

The Chevelle's coming along well, like the front-end work.Can't wait to see more, & the yellow with black sounds pretty good too!

Great body work. I particularly like the trick with the nose. I'll have to borrow your technique.

Thanks for looking and all the comments...really gives me motivation. I've begun smoothing over the front end somewhat. I think so far, the front-end treatment has really added to the overall feel of the final shape. I've only blended a curve from mid front wheel to top of headlights, but that seems to give the effect all the way to bottom of where the windshield will be, which is great. That's almost what I was looking for. So now it's time to move to the area under the headlights and I'm still thinking about that, probably will stay pretty close to what I have now....but extended out some. Have posted pix b4 and aft. Thanks for looking!!

I do have a question for anyone.....How do you edit the topic name? I have looked and looked, but don't see anything.

......ps, figured out a trick, I'll pass it along. You know how you are not supposed to use a gob of filler at once (will not dry)?? Well, I did use a gob (app. .093 thk). I used a needle and poked lots of holes in the deepest parts to allow air to get in. It worked out quite well, but there is a downside. I now have to putty again to fill the holes, albeit lightly though and was planning on doing that anyway to blend spoiler work. Thanks all....everyone's doin some outstanding art here.

This is really taking on a life of it's own and the results are outstanding!

To change the topic name, go into your first posting on page 1 and choose 'Edit'. Then choose 'Use Full Editor' and you can change the topic name. This only seems to work in the first posting that starts the thread.

All of your body mods are looking really, really great. The stretch job both in front of and behind the front wheel openings gives it an entirely new feel to it. It's coming along fantastic! Love it. Something too, I just noticed, your wheel change in the last pic really accentuates the body mods to me.

Thanks Michael for the comments and topic update....

Thanks Scott, you guys are making me feel great about this one. Glad you noticed the wheels, they do add to the feel and will be closer to what I use. Think I may machine me a set, I've started 3D modeling them but unable to finish.

Been able to do some mods, been a slow go though, front end (under the headlights) has posed some challenges. Actually, the air dam I have now is the third this Chevelle has had. For this one, I had to grind away everything I had below the bottom of the bumper line. At least I was able to save the bumper...lol. My goal was to keep the bumper and headlight area stock-appearing because this is one of the strongest defining areas for the 69 Chevelle body. I've re-filled the nose area and started smoothing. I've also started the front fender-well treatment, closed in the opening behind the wheel, added the beginnings of the new fender flares. I hope to make very good progress this week and will post some pixs when I have them. Thanks for looking!!

All the mods really fit the body well. Keeping the bumper and headlight area stock is a good idea. It looks like a modern Pro Mod but still looks like a '69 Chevelle. Keep up the great work!

The Chevelle is looking top notch, the front is coming along really good, like the new wheels, they do look a lot better.

I could not stand it no more!....went ahead with 1st primer coat, albeit a little early, maybe. Body was so busy, needed some fresh life to see where this goes next. Things are still quite rough, most of this coat is "Good as Gone", but I think we are on the right track. For this week, I will (hopefully) get the headlight area massaged (sure does need it) and make the grill. I plan on finishing the front fenderwell flares, figuring out the blend needed down the sides and maybe move on to some hood treatment. Thanks for looking and commenting!!

This is just really looking fantastic, Jeff. I was sort of shocked when I saw you chopping this up when you changed horsepower in the middle of the stream, but the transformation your body has undergone is nothing short of amazing. It really has the lines of a current pro mod car, but you're successfully carrying off the underlying '69 Chevelle theme/appearance. I'm super-impressed!
