1983 Chevrolet El Camino SS.......ish (Elky)

About

This is an 83 Elky I just bought.
It had a little bit of body damage that I am repairing. The primer is not all damage, just a few rust spots in the paint.
The engine is a 350/350 backed up with a th400 tranny.
The interior is pretty sad brown, I am changing to a Gun metal grey. I am going to prime next week, weather permitting and paint it Compitition Orange with maybe some Ice White and candy chrome blue pin stripes.
This is my first Elky but I have aways wanted one. I am looking for a blower for this as well as going to replace the top end for about 410 horses.
There is a tub in the future for this Elky, because if you are gonna go, you might as well go hard and with style.
