I bought my 64 about 12 years ago....since then i've been driving it almost every weekend....so now, its time for a little face lift ....here are some pics before I tore it down...






I brought the car to Steve Deman, and began tearing it down, doing body work and started laying tape....

...Fast forward to some color....Heavy texture in the candy was done (an old school technique done used to really make the candy pop and give intense depth in the paint)












...OG Gold Murano Pearl was used...

yes, if you notice i shaved the antennas also...along with the handles, mirrors, the flags on the fenders, the stock speaker grill on the dash....its gonna have custom paint, so why would i want to keep the stock body tags on it?


Car looks SICK bro! Hell yeah all that lil custom stuff sets the cars apart from all the others out there. It takes balls to shave stuff off an Impala! Can't wait to see it in person bro.
