It's cool to know that some of the original parts from my car will be used in the restoration of this one.

Nice Chevelle, glad to hear you got it back and the resto looks beautiful. So aside from the paint it was fairly original when you got it back? I'm just impressed it lasted all these years without being hacked beyond recognition and then smashed up by a teenager! Lucky guy!

THANKS Derek - the parts package in transit should arrive in a day or two!!

Lucky indeed - car has not been on the road since the mid 1980's - in storage for years - never wrecked - original front fenders, doors and quarters. Fenders and quarters were replaced with NOS GM parts due to the normal rust on front fenders and accelerated rust due to cut-outs in the quarters for slicks. I put a ding in the edge of the driver fender (Nov 1969) right where it curls around to the grille - didn't scrape the paint, just a small oval shaped nickel sized flat spot 1/4" deep - ding was still there with body putty and white paint over it.

Some original parts were missing - the restoration includes PN correct/CAST Date correct replacement parts across the board.

Tweaked the exhaust extensions and did a test run on the tach - tight fit between the turn signal and flasher button - just enough space for the clamp exactly as Harrell's shop did it back in 69 . . .

That's the plan IF I can get it done - trying to do something every day even if it's just a little task!!!
Already have booked the rooms - next door neighbor and his wife plan to attend with us - he's a 'gearhead' as well with
several completed projects under his belt. His interests are more along the 'hotrod' category - he's working on an early
50's chevy rat rod right now . . .
