Here's the pics of my latest completion. It's painted in HOK lapis blue with a coat of HOK oriental blue over the lapis. The roof vent was sprayed with HOK SG100 with some Pearl Ex duo red/blue. I don't see any red though. The engine is a resin copy of a BB Chevy from Crazy Scale Auto Parts.

Yes, indeed. Although you will never hear me say SHINY RULES, you are in fact working very hard towards that goal. Great job, Jim. The color is outstanding and that interior is beautiful.

Awesome work once again, Jim ! That's a beautiful blue. Love your hood & hinge treatment. This big block is dressed out perfectly for this build, it's almost elegant yet not over the edge. I remember not liking this grille in the '70s, but it looks right at home here. Your garage keeps looking better also. I don't remember seeing the mini bike before ? Everything lives up to what we've come to expect from your bench! Bart.

Thanks so much fellas. The big block fits very well except for headers. I had to make them from aluminum rod and cut the fender wells to get them in there.
