66' Chevelle SS Resto Phase 3: "Got Realfire???"

By monkeewrench

Filed under: 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle (SS_sha'Velle)

Hi All,

Paint is almost near completion on my Chevelle project. It is always amazing to see a car come back from paint, transformed with High Solids Clear applied.... Especially when it is YOURS and it is a 66' Chevelle SS! I will now turn the corner and once I get it back from paint, will finally stuff the motor and trans back in it, at last!!! Damn, they make it look so easy on TV!!!

Dan Brown is a local artist/painter here in Central Oregon and does Harleys, rods, customs. He got me addicted to his version of real fire flames when he did my snowmobile last winter. He came up with the idea of some intesely cool stuff on the paint, but you are going to have to wait to see the whole deal until I get it back, but here is a few of the pictures he sent along the way. There will also be Youtube videos of my car as he is painting it, stay tuned.

~If anyone needs paintwork done very high quality, very reasonable, Dan is looking for more projects, let me know, I will send you contact info. He does Harleys, customs, completes, details, realfire, you name it! Yeah, he kicks ass!

~Starting back in on the Chevelle!!! "Phase 2"

I met a killer painter named Dan. He shot the hood of my snowmobile black with realfire... The man is gifted and sprays mean realfire!!! -One thing led to another, we talked about projects, 401K's... He basically summed it up: "Muscle cars are appreciating at around 18% compounded continuously and how is that 401K doing? Under 10K is not really enough to retire and the way 401K's are losing money, why not put it in the car and get that thing finished???" -"Um, Yeah!!! Heck YEAH!!!!" -So I cashed the focker out, trailered it over to his shop this past Monday. -Going all black with realfire on the hood, dash, back panel and a trace inside too. I just located a 12 bolt posi with 4.10's on cracklist for $1,200 bucks... Not sure about that, but I WANT IT! Once I get it back from paint, can start putting it back together at last!!! The motor and tranny have been done for 7 years and they just sit in the garage! I started this in 2000, so yeah, I am stoked!!! -Stay tuned Will be posting some pics of it on the trailer on the way to paint, WAHOOO!!!!
