Yup, she's obviously been influenced by the dark side...

TK - I'm impressed at how you could duplicate a worn out and weathered look so accurately in your coupe

This is wierd, I have never seen the site treat my attachments like this, maybe it's my computer or maybe the file type (bmp). Some pictures that people upload here are huge and are not a attached file but are viewable in the message, mine are REALLY small after I get them to the size that will upload. Anyway, I tried to attach an after photo on the previous post and it didn''t upload for some reason so here it is:

Convert them to JPG and they will be more user friendly. The site does not play well with BMPs.

Tried to zoom in, but too many pixels. Looks good from what I could see.

Let's see some of yours

88 when I got her - not too bad
Here's mine. Nothin' fancy... but clean enough to eat off of!

Engine resto looks impressive. The PO must have had a love affair with blue and red rattle cans.

What did you do to the heater core lines? Looks like you totally repositioned the core. I haven't seen heater lines clipped to the inner liner before. Did you increase the line length to get extra coolant?

PO was me when I was much younger. I painted the car Victorian Plumb and I didn't know the inner engine bay metal was not supposed to be body color. I also didn't know what color the engine was supposed to be and I had a couple of cans of blue paint in the garage so I used it. The car was originally an A/C car which is why the heater core looks kinda off, I used an A/C delete. The reason I put the hoses where thay are is cause I wanted to keep them away from the exhaust manifold and out of the way.

Under hood video

Here’s a video shot at the F-Body gathering #16 Memorial Day weekend in Atlanta.

Some videos and pictures set to hard driving music by a band called TenPenny. Lots of colorful and modded egines with some that are factory stock. Great time and great cars!

Crank it up and enjoy!

Well, cant figure out how to embed the video, but the link works.

Old thread but I'll add mine. I thought my Lorayne came a long way but after seeing some of the pictures posted I think not so much.

Wow! These pics are really cool. I like the before and after shots the best. Here's a couple of after and one before it went in. I am in the process of building a 455 teamed to a Tremec 5 speed (.064 OD) so I can cruise the highway without beating on the motor. I imagine it will look about the same. That's my plans anyway.
