Thanks James.  For some reason I can't upload my pictures to Photobucket.  Must be some kind of problem that they're having.  Got me.  So, until this problem gets fixed, I can't update with pics.  Sorry fellas.  :( :angry:   Dan

Dan,

 

   When I was stationed in Norfolk, we used to go down to the Genroes Shopping Center (when I wasn't floating and it wasn't snowing) for their Friday night car cruise. One evening, a gentleman came rolling in with a Midnight-Blue Pearl 65. It was clad in 17" Torques and was motivated by a then-new 572 wearing EFI. to say that car was sweet is an understatement (and I am not a Vette person).

Ok, here are some more pics of the 65.  I was finally able to upload pics to Photobucket.

I had some kind of problem after spraying this and I had to san the color and then polish it.  Here is what it looked like after sanding.

Here it is after polishing and mocked up to see how this is going to look like.

The valve covers after Alclad

The bumpers after Alclad.  I think that I can polish these a little to get them to shine a little better.  They have a little overspray on them.

Thanks fer lookin.  :)   Dan

Well, I finally got some updated pics of this build.  I don't have all the parts for the fuel injection, so this is what is injecting the engine.

I dry brushed the Corvette on the back and used BMF on the fuel filler cap.

I sprayed the steering wheel with Alclad and then painted the black.  I also painted the dash gloss black and then scraped the paint off of the numbers in the gauges.

I started installing BMF on the body tonight also.  I'm hoping to have this one finished pretty soon as well as the Mako.  Thanks fer lookin.  :)   Dan
