Wow the way this melds the two different cars/truck defiantly looks factory. Excellent job on the paint too.

Thanks ! Several friends kicked in feedback cause another set (s) of eyes never hurt to spot trouble

That is awesome. Great vision on your part. :)

Thanks this build was certainly enjoyable playing with a concept idea and trying to keep it totally possible gm could've started the production of the car using available parts . My buddy kept reminding me to keep it period correct

Whoa! This turned out great, it looks factory. Great work on the wheels, I dig that you actually did the tiny chrome  accents. Motolow pen?  

Thanks!  Yeah those wheels were essential to the build, my 71 has the same style.  Yep I stripped all the chrome w super clean, sprayed the blue,  cleared , then used the 1mm molotow pen for the chrome .
