Looking good Rocco. Looks like you're doing a fine job there with the prep/paint.
Must feel good to finally get some color on her.
Keep the pics coming!

Looks like u got lost for a while like me! At least you found your way back in half the time I did. lol

The vega looks great and should take the punishment well. I'll be interested to see how your cooling solution works out next summer.

Nice work Rocco :th:

Looks good. Like the color. Like the hood and spoiler. I think the spoiler I have is the same style. Looks good.

Nicely done, love the color too.

If you don't have a pair of 15x8 I have a set of vette rallys that I'm looking to trade off two of them for 15x7 if you're interested. I'm in northern Illinois.

This car has been sitting in the garage with the car cover on it since I painted it, I did manage to finish welding everything up underneath it though.
Still have a lot to do, Brakes , fuel lines and suspension among a bunch of little stuff. I need to find it in me to finish it once and for all.
