Thanks fellas! I love that metallic black, but unfortunately, you can't see the metallic in it unless its in the sun. It's a very color though...

Here is a "sun" pic to help pull the metallic out.

Yup no what ya mean about the metallic being hard to see in some darker metallic colors Tim, but it looks good in any light lol.

Looks like you'll just have to build a rotating display base with little LED flood lights to show it off matey :D

She's really looking ace. Clean as and downright sweet.

I hope everyone had a nice 4th of July. We took 7 days and relaxed in the lake house at Smith Mountain Lake, VA. Did some skiing, did some fishing, and a whole lot of relaxing. Anyhow, I was waiting on my PE seatbelt buckles to come in before I started buttoning it up and they arrived while we were gone. I've just about got this one finished, just some minor things to clean up, adjust the doors and trunk a little and a few things here and there. Front bumper has to be mounted too... Here are a few pics of the updates. Thanks for looking!

The exact stance I was looking for!

Morning Tim, glad you had a good time for the fourth of July. The wife and I did as well. Your Chevelle is looking outstanding my friend. If your anything like me, with my Nova builds, you'll be glad to see the finish line with this one. It's nice when everything comes together like you plan it ain't it.

I've thoroughly enjoyed this build, so much that I have been on the phone with JJ Best a lot over the past two weeks to purchase one, but haven't found the right one. Its between a '65-'67 Chevelle, or a'67-'69 Camaro. It sure is nice when it all comes together, thats for sure! I've got a few on the bench waiting in line, but this one was a major step for, as all of them are. Taking ideas from you and others and then throwing in some of my own visions about what I want the car to look like is the best part. I've learned A LOT over the past 6 months. Thanks!

Tim
