Very nice pics. When i saw the first one it almost looked like the quarter panel has some kind of wild mural on it - it was the shadow....

Yes, make it your build thread and keep us up-to-date.

Well I havnt got to drive the car since Dec 25 due to all the snow storms we have had in NJ...

However I have been getting some parts here and there, for exp. I got a set of TSW nurburgring rims and a Hurst short throw shifter with black H ball. in the spring I plan on slapping some nittos on the back and swaping the stock tires to the front. Also getting the car tinted and put the pfadt springs in.

here some cell phone pics of some rims and shifter... If I can get into my shop I will take real pics with them on the car.

Well the car goes to the body shop in 2 days. should have it back by Sat. Depending if the shop can save me a lil money on the repairs I am going to stop by my other friends job and get the car tinted.

I was thinking of going light with 35% on the windows and on the side glass 15%..

My last car I went way to dark (5%) and had trouble parking at night or even seeing anything at night for that matter. I did love the way it looked though so I might drop it down to 25%...

Any body want to chime in!?

My 2010 has a ERL 427 being built/installed, butt it is an LS-3, not a "big block." Gonna be a lil screamer....I'll be following this thread with interest...

Americanmadecargirl 02-23-2011 04:54 PM

BigBlock427 02-23-2011 09:40 PM

Mindz 02-23-2011 09:44 PM

This is going to be yet another build worth subscribing to. Can't wait for updates bigblock!

BigBlock427 02-23-2011 10:10 PM

thanks again.

the 2011 is prob going to get some heads and cam work after the summer and I might throw some spray at it.

the 1968 is going to be finshed up this spring. Just going to drive it and enjoy for a while till I get used to it. That car is a strip/cruz car. It is also painted gun-metal metalic from the c5 vette line up...

the 66 Vette is a race to get the motor done I have some body work to do befor she gets paint her old color or Midnight Blue Metalic.

ill try and post the pics from my old thread that i had while i was waiting on the 11 to ship stand by!

Looks like some serious vintage earth moving muscle... Great looking car... If my dad and brother ever finish their 67 Firebird, they would make a great pair for a photo shoot...

That silver/gray SS is sooo clean. :thumbsup:

BigBlock427 03-02-2011 08:56 PM

well I go the 11SS back from the body shop. Looks brand new again. I dont think there will be anymore snow anytime soon at least I hope not... Iam going to take her out of winter storage and see how it goes. My stock rims are going to stay on till we are in the clear, I need tires anyway...

Tomarrow looks to be a lil colder then today so im prob. going to get the oil changed and put some fresh gas in her and try to get her tinted. Friday looks to be warm so im thinking about washing and waxing to. Some good quailty time with SS on my days off.. looking forward to it!

BigBlock427 03-03-2011 06:08 PM
