Well done to all you fella's that finished.Some excellent results for 3 day build ups.

I stopped working on the Impala for a few days as I wanted to make the most of the very hot days we had last week and got another builds paint job done on.


Currently the Impala has everything painted and now its just a matter of applying bmf and start final assembly.Hope to have it completed very soon.

Thanks alot Virgil.
Yep, I most definetly want to see it finished too.
Im really looking foward to seeing all the chrome work against the black,so that in itself will keep me going.
