When are you going to start sanding the body, aka the fun part? 🤣 Ok, now hit me for not working on my car.

Just a question...what's so magical about an SS steery box? Everyone seems to think there's something cool about that. A 442 box would work just as well. Same exact part number.

Glad the trunk made it safe. Better to be going on a car than sit and rust away next to the other 8 4dr butlesses :)

Looking forward to seeing this build moving forward.

Then we will call it a 442 box. :giggle:

The fun part starts as soon as I am completely done with the rolling chassis. Then I can clean it, wrap it up, and start sanding. That way I don't ruin the fresh paint and new parts. I'll just give you a "nudge" for now, since CV-19 has ruined most of the car fun this year, BUT if you miss out in 2021, I'm gonna hit you for real!

You putting redlines on this thing or what?
LOL!! Probably not. BFG does not have the tire sizes I prefer in the SilverTown redlines. I did like the look of them though. I just wanted to know what you guys thought about them. I will put it together with the 18" Camaro ralleys, but I look at wheel choices all the time. I have a set of 15" black Race Stars, a set of 18/20" black Boss 338, and the 18" black Camaro ralleys. Subject to change at any time...
