Hope you like it. Its been a long 2 1/2 years.... First please look at the three before pictures I found. They arent very detailed, but you get an idea of what I started with.

Now, what I have replaced:
Had frame straitend, new floor pans, new quarter panels, new trunk drop offs, new decklid, new door skins, new fenders, new fiberglass hood, new front and rear valance. All new chrome, all new interior, shifter, re-built tranny, MSD and all those other goodys. Im sure there are things im forgetting, but Im sure you can fill them in. Now here are the after pics:

Let me know what you think. It still needed the drip rail chrome, and the front and back glass moldings put on. But I have them. Please excuse it, because it is dirty. It has finger prints, etc on it, and I havent had a chance to wash it.

Nice work! Is the hood lift off now or do you still have it hinged with the rear pins for safety? I've been thinking about adding rear hood pins to my glass hood...Thanks for giving me an idea how it would look! Considering what you started with and where you are 2 1/2 years is tribute to your perseverance.

Dave, car looks excellent. Makes me jealous that mine is still in the body shop. I can't wait for her to come out. I bought the same hood and I have been wondering how it was going to look, I like it.....

You did good....I wouldn't have had the guts to start on a project as big as you did. You should be proud....

The car looks great. I have replaced almost the same thing as you, and am about to begin the rest of the bodywork. Mine has been ongoing for 1 1/2 yrs. Looking at yours gives me good motivation.

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE from before to after. That project has come a long way. I think I need to get into the garage and start working harder, i'm just hoping to get mine drivable soon. Good luck with it and enjoy driving it.

The hood is lift off. When I had it hinged the damn thing flew off, so Im not taking any chances this time.

I was quite impressed looking at the before and after pictures, i was even more amazed when i clicked your bio and you a student! I'm assuming your under 22 so for someone your age to actually stick to anything for over 2 years is amazing. Most of them can;t wait out a cell phone contract before they think they need to get some now plan. The car looks profesionally painted in the pictures. A job well done, now go out there and kill some chevy's!
