61 Impala W I P

28 May 2014 - 11:11 AM

Hi All..


Started a new project--the 67 442 Wagon is on hold for a while..This is a 61 Impala, built like the real one I owned many years ago..It is a light tan with matching two tone interior, not the real original color but.close as I can get to something I had back in the 60s..

  The original was a 348 cu in  - 350 hp - three two barrel - solid lifter cam -  4spd - car. Trying to make as close as possible to what I had back then ...It was a fun car to tool around in back in the day- not a killer race car but fun.... Enclosed are some pic's of it in various stages. I tried BMF but it did not work--don't know why ( maybe old  ) so I am carrying on old school and Painting Chrome Trim.  Pics are of progress with that paint before I clear it.

  In  pic's it is sanded with  6000 Grit Wet Sandpaper and waiting for clear.


    Comments  Suggestions or  just plain Chit Chat are welcomed- and looked forward to.
