Hi SixtyII,
I am going to paint it House of Colors "Euro Red". It's the color on the firewall. I looks a litle bit orange in the photos...untill you look at the firewall next to the block which is painted Chevy Orange. I think it's going to take another year to finish.

You're doing good. I've had my '65 since June and I'm right about here:



I've got the, "too many cars and not enough shop" problem. Somebody want to store my 'Vette for me for a while? :D

62 Civa....Car is looking great. I wonder if you could go to the sticky post for front clip installs in the suspension section and give us alittle info on parts like the: headers, oil pan, front wheel and tire sizes etc. This info is always being requested around here so someone made a sticky, but it's not seeing alot of action. Thanks, the project looks awesome.

suuuure, does it run ???
Not street legal. "Wrong" engine for the Smog Nazis; open sidepipes; won't idle for **** until it's warm. Sounds like a B-17...Been so long since I've taken it out I probably have forgotten how to drive it. Here's a pic pre-sidepipes:



On second thought I believe I'll keep it here. I wouldn't want to clutter up your shop. Thanks, anyhow. ;)

My welder is a Miller 170 ( I think they now call it a Miller Challenger 172). It's a portable unit (small) but it's the largest portable they make so it operates from 220Vac, not 110. It has worked great for me. It will easily weld up to 1/4" plate. When I'm welding the thinner gauge stuff like body panels and the floor pans I switch over to using 0.023" wire. It's much better for the lighter work.....much easier to control. When I am welding the heavier stuff like axel tubes, I use 0.030" or 0.035" wire. I bought my welder from a place on the net at www.cyberweld.com. They were great to deal with. I had a gas valve go bad about one year after I bought the unit and they replaced it under warranty in about 2 days! Great customer service!
