    Thank you, this has been a lot of work so far... and a lot more to come! The paint is PPG Omni basecoat and PPG Ditzler clearcoat. The PPG Omni had the best Hugger Orange in my opinion. Nick and Nick's MuscleCar Station really likes this combo of paint... he had a top 10 truck at SEMA last year, his paint jobs are second to none.

Slowly but surely... lots of detail work going on. I carefully removed all the stainless steel trim from park lights and tail lights And sent them off to Paul’s Chrome for plating. It’s been a lot of work getting then bonded back into place, but it’s worth it... looks amazing. I’m sending everything to Paul’s Chrome, the bumpers and the headlight bezels also turned out amazing. I’ve added a sneak peak of the front end... damn this thing is turning our nice so far... wish me luck!!

    I like it except my black stripes would be gloss.
