To date 12,000 went in, 6000 on order (interior and such), was quoted 9600 for Paint and body. I thought that was high priced, a lil. We got her January 18th 2009, Something to keep in mind is I tinker with it every day or every second day, pending on what is in the shop. Sometimes I play around with the Nova. This Chevelle Malibu is owned by my Boss / More like a brother to me and I'm building it as a promotional car for our shop, and as a summer toy for him. I have not charged him for one hour, nor do I plan too. He deserves the best and the best he will have. On the flip side, he did give me the Craiger rims and BFG tires for my Nova as well as the Carb, Ignition system and various other parts I needed. All and all I think it's a good deal.

Cheers Chevyboy454.

WOW! That's an impressive amount of work for such a short period of time. Especially considering the state the car was in when you got it. I guess you've put a lot of money into the car! The car and everything looks great so far!

Hopefully I can take on a project like that one day.

It's been a while since I last visited/posted we have been real busy up here planning a move back to Ontario. Just got my brothers car back from body thought I might share some pics with you guys and gals. So here is "Grimmace" all in pretty HOK paint. The paint is a kameleon Burple, It changes color with the temp and the light. It is way far out to look at up close. Enjoy.

Cheers C.B.454
Hope to pick my Nova up from paint Mon/Tues. Will post pics when I get her back.

Got her back from the body man (or so he calls himself) In total between 2 cars we spent over 11 000 bucks on this guy to straighten out the Velle and my Nova. Both cars have noticible waves in the body hard to see in pics but trust me they are there. This pompus ***** says we still owe him another 2 g's and because of that he will not release our bumpers, batteries, and a whole bunch of small trim pieces and such. The Velle looks alright as you can see from my other pics, But have a look at these and tell me I should pay this guy another cent. Even the paint is the wrong red. It was supposed to be darker with a pearl in it and heavy metal flake. Even gave him the code!!


















This car was spotless inside, had all the wheel nuts and was drivable. I got it back with a carb full of water ( left the shaker off and the carb exposed in a rain storm... Sheer Genius) no battery, over spray all over the interior.... Ugghhh....

After about 4 hours of cleaning and digging out the old parts I swapped off in the beginning to at least make her drivable...





















At least I'm on the road, If you see me just wave as the car waves for me..... So dissapointed ....

P.S.

Looking for a real cheep set of bumpers and a grille and a set of bezels for my Nova. Need to be cheep as this guy tapped me right out. Also looking for a real cheap front bumper and grille for a 75 Velle malibu. This guy isn't getting another dime from me and he can have fun trying to get 2 grand for some bumpers and trim stuff.

Seems as if a mid night raid is in order. I am an amateur paint and body guy and would be embarrassed to have my name associated with that job. You have the pics of the damage/poor quality workmanship to justify any claims he may make if he ever reports the raid to recover your parts he is trying to steal.

Sucked the front bumper in Today and mounted the grille I picked up (Bought a whole car for 100 bucks!! Not road worthy but good enough for a Derby car) Scored a whack of parts that I was missing / Needed.

Here are the pics from today









The Donor / Derby car.....






LOL the whole Shackle mount Frame and all is missing!
