Aside from the wider stance on street wheels on a 21x13" street wheel, my goal was to properly fit and tuck a Mickey Thompson 345 drag radial with on a Forgeline 18x12" wheel, so here we go!

Before:

Color choices

Had a lot of fun here. I love a blue pearl with some purple flop. The deep wine red would look good. Always wanted an orange car and the bottom center and lower right with some yellow burst would both look good.

WeaponX...what is involved in getting the fenders and quarter panels off the car? Do the bumpers and/or headlights need to be removed for access?

Cool looking project. Can't wait to see your results!

everything basically just unbolts except the rockers, those are similar to years past with Vette bond.

Still need to drop it down now that it's off the trailer but here's a teaser!

Fogeline GA1Rs on it in 19x10.5 with 295 front and 19x12 with 335 rears!

A few shots from Cavalcade

Big thanks to Jeff for letting me grab my old wheels back for the show since my new ones aren't done yet! PUR 20x9 and 20x12.5" with the 375s on the back




Forgeline hooked me up with a set of GA1R open lug 19x10.5 and 19x13s





One of my favorite pics!




Diffuser and spoiler looking good!

Pretty awesome Ben, first the bold statement with the extensive engine modification to a 427, then a complete dismantling of the body and reassembly using all new panels and paint. She is unbelievable, and you sir, are my hero.
