OK, promised more pics once the car was complete. These were taken for insurance purposes so doors and hood are not completely closed. First show last Saturday and took first in class and Best In Show.
Looks like a show winner :) Nice job

WOW! Watch where you valet park that thing...
Very, Very Nice Vette, Norm.
That's a 1969 ? It's hard to tell the difference between a 69 and a 70 Vette. I believe one of the differences is in the side louvers.

Nice ride bud!!!8)
WOW! I'm impressed.
Did you use Slick Sand? Is it base/clear? How many paint jobs have you done previously?

For all the forum members, thanks for the approval ratings. Bought a lot of my equipment from Len. Fresh air system and Devilbiss GTI 670G Plus gun. This was probably my fourth paint job. Built this one from three wrecked vets. The front clip is 69 aftermarket but car was titled as a 72 due to VIN number on frame. Paint is single stage acrylic urethane from PPG. 2009 Pontiac liquid red. Wet sanded with 3000 and power buffed. Car is running mid tens at over 120 in the quarter. First show was last weekend and took first in C3 and best in show. Car is driven on the street by my daughter (19) and will be hers upon graduation in two years.

Great looking car! Mid 10's in the 1/4 is flying. What's under the hood?

Motor is a very hand massaged ZZ502 running on pump gas with no power adders. Tranny is turbo 400 with 3800 stall.
Thanks for asking,

I was never a vette person, but that is really really nice.
What is that about a 75 or so?

Car is titled as a 72 due to vin number on windshield pillar post. Front clip is a 1969, doors from a 1977, and rear clip is from a 1971. Took three cars to build this one.
Thanks for asking,
