So I finally located a bumper. (thank you Missing Link!) and proceeded to hack it to pieces just for the bezels lol. Then I drilled out the molded in lens and add separate pieces to it to make it more realistic. Also, the stripes are on it now, (painted on) I just need to do the SS letters of the stripe then BMF the rest of the chrome trim.
Steve, I'm not sure on the color code, the guy looked it up for me and mixed it. It seems to be the same color for 71-75 GM's though.
This looks absolutely perfect. I can't wait to see the final product. And when these are done in resin. I will be getting 2 or 3 of them, These were new cars when I was born. My aunt owned a Chevelle 4-door , Orcher with a Black top, The rear quarters were so rusted they flapped when she shut the back doors, That was when the car was 12 years old , For some reason back in 73-77 GM used cheap steel, My 73 Nova was bad also, The rear spings rusted through the floor in the hatchback. My 79 was almost as bad. I got them both in 1989 when I was 16. 1973 Is a very special year for me when it comes to cars. The paint and the stripes look perfect , I'm still drooling over this build. Now only if someone would come up with a conversion kit for a 73-74 Nova, Hint Hint.
