I must say I haven't seen a black that looked that good in some time. You're going to be afraid to drive it for fear of scratching it!

Car looks great, Especially black, doing it yourself. Did you start this build when you started this thread in Dec?

73ss,

Yes, I picked up the car in October, drove it till the weather got sour (didn't take too long in ILL), and started the bodywork the last week in November. Thanks to all of you for the compliments.

Dave, the Cutlass looks awesome! I feel like a teenager every time I get in the Monte, like driving a time machine.

Looks great Dave. Is that without a cut and buff? Cuz if it is, you can lay down some seriously nice paint and clear. Thumbs up
