With the fenders, rear spoiler and rear bumper on.





Still got some wet sanding and buffing on the front fenders and a little more work to do on the front bumper.
This is where we are currently. I'll put up some more pics when we make some more progress.

The center of gravity was always forward on the Z's. Alot of guys ran traction bars on them. Nice build. Been a long time since I've seen an orange block

I'm sure I may get a little criticism at some car shows for the orange block. Chevrolet changed from orange to 'GM corporate blue' from 1977-81...then to black in '82 & up. The engine I ran previous to this one was in fact the correct blue for the era (it was pretty too). It didn't have quite as much radical hardware this one has.

I'm a huge fan of orange blocks
I'm also a huge fan of people fixing old cars over buying new

Really slick ride golddot

Appreciate the compliments folks. From the 1st pic of this thread to the last is dang near a 9 year span. This isn't something I did in just a few weekends. There's been a lot of time, work, attention to detail and a LOT of money invested in this 'project'. It's so close to being finished yet so much that still needs to be done. I'll keep updating this thread as I make progress.

Refurbished tail lights with brand new lens. Happy with how they turned out.
