Thanks guys I appreciate it!!

Getting so close I can't wait! Also just a fyi the "Impala SS" windshield banner and "Got Impala" sticker on the back are going to be removed. I want it as clean and sleek as possible. Also replacing rockers on Monday and going to prime and undercoat them as appose to paint for better protection.

Looks great! Gunna wet-sand and buff it, or just leave it as is?

Good stuff! Might as well go all the way if you've gone this far. Nothing like a mirror-finish black paint job.

If I were to go through this process, I'd probably do a custom color that looks stock. Like a black paint job with a blue or purple pearl in it, so to 99% of people, it's just a black Impala, but in the right light and when looking closely, you can tell that it's a custom paint job :eek:k3:

That would be cool, I just have always dreamed of having this car look brand new like this. With a twist of course (Indy Grille and chrome wheels).

No real exciting updates today. Painting the odds and ends stuff mirrors, moldings, spoiler, taillight covers, rocker moldings and door handles. Going to start the rockers later on today and finish them up tomorrow then we're in the home stretch hopefully done mid to end of this week.

Well heres a update I wish i wasn't making. Cut the outer rocker apart yesterday and the inner is much worse than expected. It will all be fixed in the end, just been a long road and really want it back. I'm really hoping Friday :hope: but we'll see otherwise next Monday or Tuesday.

Thankfully their all repaired and done going to rust proof the crap out of them even if it doesn't see another winter which it won't still nice to have that added protection. Also got the doors mounted up today all that is left is the front end and a few misc things. Should be all done looking like a car tomorrow. Wet sanding and buffing it Friday should have it back Monday or Sat night.



Did alittle body work on this side because it will be seen from the door jam i promise its not just mudded up lol




Back end looks so sexy


Drivers door is full of dust thats why it looks off hue
