60' Impala * PAINT'S DOWN*

Post by DeeCee on Sun 01 Nov 2015, 10:49 pm

Spent almost a week in the room wondering what to start next, FINALLY, i came up with the idea of a lowrider.
60 Impala,  Made a set of extended spats for the rear,  smoothed out the boot by removing the spare wheel.








Found an accent color, "passion purple" nail polish, still not sure of body color yet.


And wheels are sorted too.


And that was my Sunday afternoon. Smile

TJ, thanks mate, about an hour to carve them out, and thanks D/A.  Smile

Clear coat is done, and a bit of detail in the boot with the air pumps and battery.
Might do some steroe too yet.. And BMF and polish to go.
