Thanks Ron, I appreciate it!
Some more work done today, actually I got pretty much done and it's getting really close now. I started by installing the Rear View Mirror and interior lights as well as sun visors inside the body. Then I installed a tachometer and its' cable that's made from Scale Dreams' stuff. I also connected a couple of wires to firewall and finally I put the body and chassis together. The fitment was excellent.
Looks like the closeup shots are looking horrible... Well anyway I'm planning on finishing this thing in a day or two.

Ok it's official......I'm in love with this car......I think I'll be breaking the seal on mine pretty soon!
You are doing a fantastic job on this. I cannot wait to see it all wrapped up.

Thanks Guys! The kind words mean a lot!!
I agree, it's one of the best looking Chevrolets of all time, which means that it's one of the best looking cars of all time as well. And this Revell's kit is top notch. It's getting really close now and the light at the end of the tunnel is getting really bright now, as I have only a couple of parts to install tomorrow and then it's done.
Today I installed almost everything. Water hoses, one decal, mirror and a couple of details are missing, but otherwise it's done. Only problem I had was with the front bumper and grille, or actually the body color panel between them. It didn't fit nicely on neither the bumper nor the grille. I was able to get it on place somehow, though. Everything else went nicely on place. I also polished the hood.
Here is my only pic'... The polished hood. "Studio Pics" of the finished build will be added tomorrow once it won't take long time to wrap it up.

Wrong part number on your belt, that's actually an upper radiator hose part number................... LOL. I'm just messing with you man. Incredible build with some amazing detail. Looks great!

James: Thanks! It's always good to have a bit humor on these Forums, too . That gave me a good laugh!
Dave: Thanks, I'm happy with the paint, too. Painting white causes me problems fairly often, so considering that I'm especially happy how it turned out. The decals could be better, but it's not too bad.
Jason: Thanks. It's nice to build a more detailed build now as my last one, the '61 Olds STW wasn't as detailed as this one.
Danno: Thanks! It means a lot, especially when thinking how talented builder you are.
This build is officially Finished!
It definitely feels great to complete a long project like this, also because I lost the inspiration a couple of times because of some kind of issues this build had. I want to say a huge Thank You for everyone who has been following this Super Stocker come together, but especially I want to thank those who have posted a comment/comments! I really appreciate them all.
Here are some pictures of the finished Impala.

This really came out nice. You really inspired me to start on my own. I hope it comes out half as nice as yours!
