I like this build and the color is perfect. I'm confused that you didn't have the hood done when you painted the body. Will the hood be black? Metallics are hard to match in my experience. Nice build whatever,I had a '66 Chevy II SS many years ago.

Looking good Shane, paint looks great, and nice colour choice!!

 

Like the chrome on sides and window trim added, personally IMO the hood would look better without the big bulge, or at least greatly reduced, and just the ZR1 style window grafted in, given the rear tire size used, but if you put some significant meats on the rear, then the big hood bulge would fit the look, if you know what I mean!?

Cool job so far.  I have a thing for the early Novas.  Back in the day around 1975, my buddy Mark had a '62 Chevy II 2 door sedan. It was a hand me down from his sister and had been brush painted white with house paint.  The back seat was from another car (someone missed tossing a cigarette out the window and the back seat bottom had caught fire) that wasn't tied down. It had no seat belts and virtually no floor, but it was Hell on wheels!

 

The crazy things we did in that car. I'm amazed that we didn't get killed.  Mark's father eventually made him junk it since he feared that the body was barely attached to the chassis due to the floor rust.  Mark got a '66 Mustang coupe with a six cylinder / 3 speed as a replacement. And that's another story!

 

Yes, I'd love to add both of those cars to my shelf someday!

Very nice project, Shane!  I like the color (my favorite) and the stance is right on point too.  Everything about this project is cool.

My builds have been on hold for a few weeks now...Been fighting stuff on the Lightning and trying to get it squared away...But I did manage to get the hood cut and in...It still needs alot of work but I think it will be sweet and diff

Your hood is really going to look great on your build. Very nice custom touch...
