My 1966 GTO frame off project

Just thought Id show off my project and see what you guys think. Its a 1966 GTO, black on black 4 speed AC car. It is a frame off restoration, the car has been acid dipped even though it was a rust free Oaklahoma car and all the body work has been done, Its all GM sheet metal except the hood. The suspension has been completely rebuilt with polyurethane bushings, 4 wheel disc brakes, koni shocks, and a 2 inch lowering kit. Im also having a 400 built for it. We should be ready to paint it in the next week or so. This is a family project that me, my dad, and my grandpa are doing and so far its been a lot of fun.

Very nice. Great they have the hoods available to you. Was the fit ok? Are you painting back to original color?

We were very surprised with how well the repro hood is, The only thing is the metal is a little thinner than a GM hood. And yes its going to be painted black again
