That'll be one of the last things. I'm gonna pull the frame out from under it next and get it all cleaned up and sand blasted, Then i'm gonna send it out to get all the stress points reinforced. When i get it back i'm gonna have it painted. Then when that's done, I'm gonna drop the motor and tranny in and put the front clip back on then have the car painted.Originally posted by tlc64impala@Jul 28 2005, 03:48 PM

Ive ben working on getting the Caddy out, I just put a new tranny in it, got the digital dash working and now all I need are a few little things and oh ,yeah paint. Im may let a few of the little thing slide just to get it back out, as long as its been since I started on it there just wont be any excuse for half-assing it though. Im hoping for September.
Ill stop by tommorrow though.
Thanx homie. Yeah i got the car back at my new place. I'll PM you my phone #. I know where there are a few Impalas for sale. Get up with me.Originally posted by tlc64impala@Aug 29 2005, 10:56 AM~3712692
Hey John Looking good man. Is the car at your new place now ? I need to get up with you. Im looking for another impala man.
Thanx homie. Hey you need to get up with me, i'd like to talk to you about a few things. I can PM you my phone number if you want.Originally posted by blvddown@Sep 3 2005, 09:30 PM~3747992
:thumbsup: GOOD START..
I used a drill with a wire wheel. Took me a while but i got it. My car body is sitting on 4x4's and jackstands, so i had to do it all upside down. I ended up getting really dirty. Word to the wise, use saftey goggles and a face mask. LOL!!!Originally posted by san 312@Sep 5 2005, 11:53 PM~3760390
what did you use to clean the belly....... I need to do mines .
LOL!! Thanx homie. Naw it's cool, I stacked blocks up to support where the 4x4's were bowing in the middle.Originally posted by Ulysses 2@Sep 6 2005, 02:26 PM~3763175
Dont let that thing fall on you, looks good John. When do you think itll be done?
Hell yeah :biggrin:Originally posted by independent@Sep 5 2005, 10:12 PM~3759758

why didnt you finish cleaning it?
That's cool homie. But i just wanted to clean it up a little bit, Ya know. not really looking for a show winning undercarriage. Just something clean, undercoated, and painted enough to where i can still drive it out on the street and not have to worry about messing anything up. Also, My funds are limited, So whatever i can do on my own and not have to pay someone else to do, I'll try and do it myself. Plus i know that not alot of people are going to see underneath my car.Originally posted by Mr Impala@Sep 10 2005, 08:27 AM~3787689
justa fyi its easier to have the belly sand blasted at the stage your at all that shit would have came off in 20 minutes and cost about 200.00 for the belly and looked 10 times better. It looks cool now but medai blasting is the way to go
Mark got a new 63????Originally posted by Ulysses 2@Sep 11 2005, 05:51 PM~3794725
Whats up john, my Caddy is going in the shop Next week to get the engine done. The deal on the 65 rag didnt come though so if you find another Impala let me know. Have you seen Marks 63 yet? :biggrin:
