Here's a few more shots. Still gotta put a couple more coats on the interior then hit the seats with some semi-gloss to tone down the shine and hopefully make it look more like leather. Next on the to do list is get the engine built. Any suggestions would be great. I'm hoping to learn from you all. :)

Bart, I'm actually using the 454 from the '70 Chevelle parts car. I had thought the same thing, lol. It definitely needs a big block. :D

Nice, looks so much better with that grille! How did those Firebird designs decals work out?

Just to give ya an idea of what it'll look like with the wheels. Should I leave them chrome or paint the spokes to match the grill and headlight surrounds. Thanks, I appreciate the input. Geno.

Finally got the dash finished other than a final polishing. I printed out my own white gauge cluster and used .005 sheet styrene as the gauge glass, I also installed an ignition using one of the photo-etched door locks from Model Car Garage fitted with a key on an official Chevy keyring, lol. :D

i would like to build one to look exactly like the original box art.

would probably involve a top chop too!

Thanks Mike. I'd built Quicksilver years ago and hated that I'd ever gotten ride of it. And since it's such a hard kit to find now, this is kinda living my youth again building this one. B):D
