I bought all new 2 tone trim for her too. I recently finished my interior, including a new sound system. Here's a few pics of what I've got going on! I have an arm rest in my interior which you can't see in this pic(it's flipped up). I'm keeping the same base color which is the factory color(cream white), but I'm gonna go with a darker gray on the 2nd tone, not quite black but pretty dark. Here's my junk that's going into her! It will be kinda like a new car(I hope)! My motor is stock, but new and runs very well. She's a cruiser, not a racer. In the future, I'll drop in a 290HP crate motor, but that's far down the road(a couple of years). My current motor runs so well I'm not gonna mess with it. I've included a before pic of the exterior for comparison to what I'll post when she's done.











You've been busy.

Still looking for the right 78-81 Bu. Thinking about taking the 511" bb out of the Nova to put into a Bu. Plans for the Nova are a big inch sb with a procharger.

Well you only live once. But no matter how big or fast you get there is always someone bigger or faster to show you're not as big as you think you are. I set my goals within my reach trying to run a certain number. Running mid or low 8's is ok but there are guy's with 6 second @ over 200 mph street cars now. That's very humbling I don't ever plan to go that fast.
