The rear floor and trunk section was removed and a custom floor with trans tunnel and "Tubbed" rear wheel sections were installed. A new Harwood 15 gallon fuel cell was mounted in the trunk.
The body and panels were properly prepped, rimed, locked sanded several times and then painted. The paint used was PPG and was a base coat clear coat type of paint. The paint color is called "Torch Red" which is a very popular GM color. The paint is in great shape with no checking, hips, racks, range peel texture or scratches. The doors, enders, ood and trunk were all carefully re-installed making sure all the panels were correctly aligned and have the proper gaps. Please take a moment to view the photos looking down the sides on the vehicle. It is very straight without any waves, oor dings, ents or chips. New rubber weather stripping was also installed after the paint job. A car cover is also included with the sale of the vehicle. Chrome & Trim:
Most of the original trim was removed and shaved. There is a thin stainless steel trim moulding that runs on the very bottom on the body. The chrome grille and front bumper are flawless.
