Subscribed! I may end up as a copy cat. I got the body, need to go get my frame, got a 4 bolt small block to build, hmmm. The deepest form of flattery right?

We need someone to do a photoshop or rendering for a visualization.

Good Luck with CPP.
Expect some delays and unkept promises. I hope your experience with them is better than it was for me.

Are you gonna do hood stripes?

LUV2XCLR8 03-12-2009 08:17 PM

Re: Project: "Yenko C5 Blazer"
 
Yes, hood and side stripes with the exception of 2 things;

1. The rear quarter will read "Yenko/C5" not "Yenko/SC"

2. All of the stripes will be Ghosted into the paint, visible
up close, but from a distance she will be all Triple Black.

:ho:
