Arrow IOM Black Diamond Build Journal [COTW 1/21/13]

I really like reading about everyones builds, so it is time to start one. I have already done some mods but it is better late then never. I am bad about remembering to take pics as I am doing the work. I will try to get better at it. I really like to do all of the work myself. I have put a lot of thought into everything I have done so far. I want the car to look like it was planned out start to finish. I really wanted to bring some old into the new. Like the 69' shift knob, and the old SS emblem, the hash marks from the Trans AM series and the tail lights black out. My wife and two kids and I really like to take the car to shows and talk to people about it. Now a little about my car.
