possibly inner fenders if they are good . I don't need an engine or trans . Its plenty stout made 500 on the dyno and is backed by a built 400 turbo with a 3500 stall . thanks for asking ..

Re: My New 72 Chevelle

Nice work Bob. Are you going to pull the body off and blast and paint the frame when you're done with rust repair?

Re: My New 72 Chevelle

Great job so far, I'm surprised to see the aftermarket parts look like they fit really well. Guess the Chevelle parts are made much better than the after market body parts tir our trucks

Re: My New 72 Chevelle

I didn't show you all the beating and forming .. I have been doing sheetmetal work for about 23 years . The goodmark stuff fits pretty good but not great..
