Thanks Niko,

I got the idea/inspiration of doing a Chevelle as a Lowrider from G.Seeds.

As for the colour, yep it will get the usual gloss black.

Thanks for dropping by and commenting Zac.

The Caprice is looking super nice James.

Look foward to seeing what subject you choose for a bomb and watch it being built too.

looking good James. Hard to tell from the pics but did you do the white vinyl in the side trim strip? kinda looks like it, nice!. BTW,, the whole windshield pillar is covered with the trim on those full size GM cars back then , no paint showing. Looks really good though.

Thanks for the "A" pillar advice.The white on the side trim is the reflection of the white poster board.But I'm going to paint it semi gloss white

as suggested.

@ Luke ..love the stance dude

@ Mark ..that gold is pimpin !

Decided to add a lowrider bike to go along with the Caprice.

The bike is from the AMT 1966 Riviera.

Lol , thanks James.

I most certainly have the Lowrider build bug at this moment in time.,Plan to do a least 3 or 4 more for this c.b.

That Lowrider bike is cool as,like how you colour matched it to the Caprice.

Very cool Lowrider, as Usual. I really dig your style of builds, Clean, and smooth and especially super shiny! That BelAir looks very good to me, engine details are also fantastic.

Update on the Chevelle,kinda at a stand still the weather (rain) has been holding me back from apply the paint.

So I figured il get another build started while Im waiting.

You just keep building these Lowriders and that's great! Impala is going to be killer build also when finished. B)

You have inspired me-it's time to start looking for a basis for Lowrider build. :D

Really itching to get started on the paint.
