Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

I hear you there.. Here is my stash of hoods. They all need work, but they say I have a problem with hording parts... You can also see I have 4 engines right there too. I have a low mile 454 and a 5.7 LS1 that didn't make it into the shot too..

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

A couple more pictures of my Panel. This time with the front bumper mounted. I must say I am not very happy with what I see. My Panel is now blown back apart and will soon be on a rotisserie. I wish I was there to address this issue before it was taken apart. WES

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Got the tub removed from the chassis. I am going to dismantle the chassis and have it powder coated.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

I have always said that when projects drag on for years the vision tends to change a little here and there. Well here is the latest vision change my panel has undergone. Air Ride!

This has come a long way in short time, I can see why you are excited. That is looking sweet, good choice on adding air.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

The body is looking great! I spy an early second Camaro next to it at the body shop. I love those things.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

It's been a while since I had progress to post. That was because it has been a few weeks at the powder coaters. I like how it turned out... Had to take a pause after unloading it to go buy the 70 short bed 4X4 though. Now it will be back to work on the Panel...

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

The "ugly" stuck pretty good....lol. Is that a camo job or just touch up with whatever the could find? It looks pretty straight.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

It was someone's idea of camo. LOL. It was painted on using a paint brush.. The truck will literally need every body panel replaced either because of rust or some sort of damage..

Ya buddy! It will go fast now for a while. At least until I get it home and start fitting the motor, transmission, and wiring..

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

The chassis looks really nice! Is that a red head gear box or just a top painted red like they do?

It's been a while since I had progress pictures, but here are a few. Getting it back into primer and starting to fit the custom rear bumper.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Thank you. I hoped to be driving it this summer, but now that looks a bit optimistic. I may get it done by fall, but I am not going to rush it. Too much time and energy has gone into this to try to do a hurried job to finish. WES
