This is a great car! It is also the one that inspired me the most to try one of my own. It is all hands on from start to finish. Good to see it back on the forum. Very Happy

Lots of hard work went into that one!!

21 Patches in Driver's Side, and 19 patches in passenger side. I looked at R-Car's floors and decided I wanted 'em to look like factory, so without a bead roller, I had to hand form each and every single bend, bead roll, etc.

This is how I have to get all my cars. I wouldn't know how to act if I got one and all it needed was a scuff and shoot paint job. Thanks for the kind words...

I'm curious what the side trim is, looks like metal flaked silver. Also how does the interior look? From the pictures it looked dead. Great job on the whole car.

Those inserts are made from Mylar. VERY shiney. Glue on pieces. unlike the originals that cost about $2000.00 in rough shape and needing reanodizing, these cost me around $300.00 for the set.
No, it's not paint. Can't get into my Photobucket right now, but Interior looks as "Movie correct" as I could afford. Seat covers only cost me around $400.00. I did this car as cheap as any can be done and still appear to be movie correct. I still have a little over $10K in her.

The days of building one of these for under $10K are long gone. I tried, can't be done.

Ya got that right Chaney. A 2Dr HT 58 and bumpar wings are going to eat up most of the $10,000 today before you even start.

I never would have guessed that it was glue on stuff, either way it looks great. Really stuck out to me, it was the first thing I noticed in the 1st shot of her done.

I dohn't know if Chaney has told you yet but he has a lot of fun with his car at shows, he has a remote starter on it. Im sort of afraid to put one on Redsled because she may see a cheby she don't like and take off after her. Hee! Hee!

I'm still so impressed at how you turned this car around. You did every square inch of it yourself and then added the cool electronics. I don't think I ever met any one that can do it all the way you do. She is beautiful inside and out but you already know this. If I remember right ..she won the first show you put her in. Cool

Awesome before and after photos. I've never seen before pics of her, but she's come a long way. The transformation is outstanding.
