Re: new member 1965 chevy

It almost doesn't look like a bus from the rear!

What color you going to paint it?

That's a really nice swap-out in the back! I agree with ezbme... very well done.

Re: new member 1965 chevy

I say just clear coat it the way it is!!

I can relate to amount of work you are doing... spent many many hours block sanding too many panels restoring some cars that should have been scrapped!

Re: new member 1965 chevy

to much done now not to paint,i do lots of it.Besides themhardest part is done,and dont have to paint roof or black panels.Already have the paint also.Think ill wait till next year now concentrating on reviving the propane system next and 12 volt power upgrade.

Re: new member 1965 chevy

yeah and the 454 would be grate in my 70 c10 or my 71 k10 with k20 running gear
but the 350 four bolts that are in theme are grate it's just the 454 with the four
speed and two speed rearend with900 20s, it does not do good from thread gear
on for picking up speed.
