        Another guy that makes me feel like a three toed sloth! : Great work - and pretty damned quick!

        Cool use of gloss/semi gloss paint - can't wait to see interior shots!

        Are those real bullet holes in the glass on the passenger side - or stickers?
        There's always something new to learn.

          thanks for the kindness but don't feel bad.
          my '67 has been almost 10 years in the shop ,figured I need to shit or get off the pot with it with the new baby so just this year I started really working on it lol

          ya I think the paint came out ok for a garage job and something cheap and different still need the pinstriping lol

          as for the bullet holes they are stickers the window is broke and untill I drop it off at my buddys glass shop it looks better this way lol
          thanks again guys
