First pics of my 65 GTO with new paint

Hey guys. i just wanted to show the first pic of my 65 GTO after being painted last week. As my friend (the painter) says "this car is just falling together"
On Wednesday we dropped the body on the frame and bolted it down. Today we started putting chrome on and other misc items. Next week will be window regulators, grilles, bumpers and rear end bezels and chrome. So what do you think??????

Thanks for the positive comments. I am very excited to see the car progress in the last few weeks. We strayed a little from stock by painting the firewall and inner hood surface body color. I'm very happy with the results.

i wouldnt tighten the body bolts till the bumpers go on. no side to side adjustment on the bumpers. you get that by shifting the body.

Holy smokes! I hope mine looks that good when I get color on it. I love that color on yours, makes me wish the father in law didnt have a yellow one.

Great looking car!!! I always loved Fontaine Blue. Understated, classy, and contemporary, 46 years later! With all due respect to 66TempestGT, the bumbers are adjustable side to side. They slide on the brackets where the brackets attach to the bumper. Just did two sets: a '65 and a '67. No shifting of the body...the body mounts are non adjustable.
