    Yep, I've used Mirror Chrome on a couple of things before and a smooth high gloss black finish is key. I'm in the process of polishing the body smooth, after that's done I'll start spraying the mirror chrome.

    I can't imagine what you are going through Harry my and my families thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm 150% positive you will beat this. Best wishes

    I thought full roll cages were for additional safety.  But I imagine as Rob said it's mostly to keep race cars off the road 
    Good spot Dennis, I didn't see that skimming through it back in Dec.- Jan. I'll put extra care into whatever I do for a roll cage.

    Thanks fellas!
    Update time (finally) Got the engine situated and sprayed Flat Black then Gloss Black on the body in preparation for the Spaz Stix Chorming. The roof piece did wrinkle so I'll have to sand and re-spray that, Thankfully it's a separate piece from the body.






    Thanks for looking!

    I believe it, everywhere you turn folks are looking a smart phone.
    Don't have one myself and I'm 26 haha. I prefer to stay focused on the task at hand and paying attention to what's around me when I'm out and about.

    Nice work Larsen.  Yeah it's always quite around this cbp until the last two or so months then everyone's in a mad dash to finish (guilty of that myself lol).
    Got a donor kit (Jeep Rubicon) and finally made it over to a hobby shop to pick up some styrene so I should be starting mine pretty soon.

    I saw that road course video towards the beginning of the year. I thought someone shared it already, really cool and provided good insight.
    Haven't seen that vehicle yet, looks awesome though.

    Small Update, had to make a couple changes one was cutting off the round cylinders Revel had for the coil springs, made actual springs with some jewelry wire. I've also had to cut away the rear wheel wells so the street tires will fit properly and the ride height has been lowered a little bit.



    The motor is mostly assembled, still got to do run all the wires and hoses.
    Thanks for looking!

    Amazing build Bruce! Paint and engine detail looks killer!

    Very nice work, really liking the color and engine.

    With all the body work it definentely wasn't done for Father's Day but I did the body work finished and did a little mock up for him, he's liking it a lot.




    Looking at it we both noted that it looked like it was sitting a little high so I'll try lowering it a little. That's next on the list as well as getting the motor finished and mounted, just remembered I still need to cut a hole in the hood for the blower.

    That looks awesome as is Ray! Remember a little more can turn into too much.
    No worries Brayden, life is life and there's still 5 months to go so I wont mark you out just yet.
    Super busy as of late but I'm hoping to get mine going later next month.

    Thanks, I going to try to do a bare metal finish first. It's something he's become interested in recently. For the past 2 months we have been in the process of removing all 52 odd years of paint from his 1:1 '64 Suburban, we want to take it down to the bare metal to have a clean slate of sorts. As we're revealing more of the metal he's been liking the look more and more and asked if I could do something similar for the truck.

    Yes,  I replicated his '77 Formula back in '14. He's done a lot and the best he can and these builds are the least I can do to show my appreciation for all he's done.

    64 C-10 Fleetside Overhaulin' Type Re-build for Dad Update: 9-5-16
    This here is a model my Dad had been tinkering with every now and then for the past few years. His hands hurt a little to much to enjoy building and he's very busy with work and life type stuff so he offered to me last week to either part out or scrap all together.
    Naturally I'm doing neither, instead I'm going to tear it down and re-build/restore it for him as a late Father's Day present. Going in a Overhaulin' style with it, he knows it's happening but won't really get to see it until it's finished. I'll be taking a few idea's he's thrown around for his 1:1 Suburban and add few of my own in as well. The end result will be something along the lines of a Overhaulin'/ Fast & Furious/ resto-mod type'ish (lots of "ish" in there) custom truck.
    Some of the idea's are as follows.
    The one big thing he'd like to see is the bare metal finish that's becoming quite popular. Got a plan that proved to be very promising. But I'm open to hearing ideas too, backup plans are always good to have.
    It's going bumper less. Among some of the ideas he's tossed around for his 1:1 removing the bumpers has been something he mentions often so I'll be applying that to this build.
    Changing the tail light set up in the back. Not going with the usual Corvette treatment, instead I'll go with a tail light design he's very found of and that's the '67 GTO's quad light.
    Big horsepower, naturally. Swapping the Standard  283 small block with the 396 big block out of the '67 Pro-street Chevelle. Tossing a supercharger on it to for good measure.
    Custom grill and a few other ideas that I'm still working out.
    I was initially hoping to have it done before Father's Day but 7 days in and I'm still doing body work. There's a ton more to be done after that and as nice as it would be I'm not going to rush it, I want to do it right and to the very best of my ability.
    Picture time.
    Starting point: Believe it or not that color is that $1.29 bottle paint in Wal-Marts craft section, brushed on even. That stuff's not half bad. 

    Rims will also be getting stripped due to the paint and scratches on them.

    After stripping.

    Removed the grill mounts to make room for the custom grill.

    Removed the gas cap and side trim for a smooth body. Will also be bodying in the door handles as the handles themselves are missing.

    Lower plate for the back with the GTO style lights.

    And after the first round of body work, starting on the second round.

    Thanks for looking, more to come.
