About a stones throw West of Rockford. If you ever take Rte 20 to Galena, you'll go right by me.

Wow! Love the car. Do you have some kind of parts depot in that garage to just “throw” on some stuff you have laying around. I like how you just decide to put on some stripes or whatever like it’s no big deal LOL. Nice car.

Thanks for the compliments guys!

No Brian, I don't have a "parts depot" but I do have a collection of stuff I've accumulated over the past 25 years. I'm a pack rat and happen to have a lot of storage space which makes it even worse!

As far as the stripes go, as with any paint project, planning and preparation took 3 times as long as the actual spraying. I took the measurements right out of the assembly manual and just started measuring and taping.
I don't mean for it to come across as "easy" as it sounds it's just I've been doing signs, graphics and painting for 15+ years now so I tend to skip a lot of the details as its almost second nature when doing it.

Before I did the stripes I also repainted the entire spoiler and a 1/4 of the roof as they both had "issues". This car is a 20 footer at best and I'm just making it look the best I can until I give it the full resto treatment in the not so distant future.

That was my daughters first comment also, she hates the Packers, my son however is a Packer fan.

The wheels are Centerline Telstars, 15 x 8 & 15 x 4.

Note to mod - Can you change the name of this thread to Chevrolaine's 72 Chevrolet??

Alright boys and girls, time for another update.
I've done nothing but drive and enjoy the $hit out of this car since last summer but I was always leary of driving it too far as it looked like the suspension had NEVER been touched.

It's time to fix that. I'm not sure where this is gonna lead too but I'm hoping to just pull the subframe, rebuild it, paint the firewall and generally spruce it all up like new again.

But then you never know what your getting into once you start tearing these things apart!

As it sits in my barn.

Thought I'd just make it simple and just remove the whole clip at once, never done that before!

I was quite happy to see there wasn't much rust repair on the fenders or lower firewall! Sweet, I like easy fixes!


Gotta head outside right now and wrench some more.
I'll be back!

That's a darn nice car, shouldn't take a ton to get it polished up and back on the road. Mostly a good cleaning and some fresh paint under there.

Keep the pics coming.
