Welcome to the site, from up in Canada.

This is one of the single best sites for anything related to classic full size Chevys.

The forum might not be as fast as some others, but the info you get is absolutely first class.


One part at a time.

Wow. Nice ride. Is that primer black or painted flat black?

Either way, looks awesome. I'm going to PM you my contact info.

Thanks man!
It's primered black right now...when I first purchased it I had to sand thru 3 layers of paint to try and smooth it out. Previous owner neglected to sand it at all...just painted right over whatever was there. I plan on going with the hot rod flatz (black) when its time to get the body work done.
Got your PM...responded with my info.
