I started mine today, first time since October..man Optima Batteries are awesome, no boost or nothing, hooked up the negative, a couple of pumps, and it fired right up. The belts are squeaky...time for an upgrade.
Sounds great, Dave! And looks awesome too.
Primed the underside of the hood and trunk, primed the doors after I wire wheeled the textured area(soft wheel on a drill), also sprayed a few chevelle parts while I was at it... Other than that I really didn't do much to it..stared at it for a while, just thinking what to do...& how to do it.

I now know better where to cut my quarters off and replace them with pieces from my good cut offs I bought from a guy in New York. I would have cut too much off my original quarters before I talked with Dale
