Dan I can't believe how well your car is coming out and the great quality of the parts that you've chosen,Outstanding .Not wanting to ruin your build thread but can you tell me what brand of garage tent or portable garage is that in the picture ? Lotsa room in there maybe I could replace the two of them that I got with one like that garage in the picture.

Hey John,

Thanks for the compliments. I have tried to overbuild this car with parts that hopefully won't break. The big word there is hopefully.

The temporary garage is from Shelter Logic. It has been worth every penny, I had to replace the vinyl once, and upgraded it to the thicker option at that point. The camaro and john deere and old car parts like a 10 bolt rear end are sitting in there right now. ShelterLogic Garage-in-a-Box SUV/Truck Shelter, Grey, 13 x 20 x 12 ft.

All the parts for mine + the lift last year........$$
I was looking through your post, and saw the one about "letting the green grow." Then I see the lift, and all those great parts....ummmm, not so much green growing. But well spent I would say!

I can't complain about driving it for awhile, then updating it with paint. It will seem like you have done 2 builds. Get that first car feeling again.

Re: 65 SS Chitvelle - My PT attempt

Thank you Dan,for that information I have 2 of them tents and the way things are going moneywise I doubt I'll ever get a stick and brick garage but that one looks like it might replace the crappy ones that I have right now.The Harbor Freight one only lasted 9 months and HF wouldn't warrantee it.
If you have to keep anything in there long term you can eliminate a good amount of moisture build-up by parking it on a couple of sheets of plywood. I use the pressure treated 3/4 plywood and they have lasted well over 10 years,they really help.

Yeah, I figured I would spend all the money on the performance stuff now. I can't see the paint while I'm driving I sold some stuff to buy the lift....but yeah, I hope to someday do the body and paint like your doing. I'm dying to drive mine!!

I am really pushing for mine to be on the road this summer. Need to start putting miles on it.

I was thinking that with the plywood until one day I went in there when it was a warm winter day and the condensation was everywhere anyway...along with the snow blowing in from under the door. But it is nice to have and definitely better than storing them outside. So if not regular garage is in the works, these will almost do the trick.

Re: 65 SS Chitvelle - My PT attempt

Got some more pics from the shop today.

You can see the rear trim needs to have some added to it on bottom ends of around the taillights to match up with the piece across the trunk. All trim is going to be painted. You can see the trunk gap is looking good. And the windshield area has been built up to have the same gap for a T shaped gasket to fit into. This will allow for windshield removal if something happens to it.

Windshield - glass is in place and gap is looking good


Rear with no trim on, trunk gap looking good


Passenger side taillight and trim


Driver side taillight and trim


Whole back of car with trim

And a couple more today from the shop of the rear bumper on the car. Looks good tucked in there.

Re: 65 SS Chitvelle - My PT attempt

What color are you going to paint the trim? That is my plan also, going with a metallic silver of some kind. That'll probably be next winter though, need to get this running and driving first.

Re: 65 SS Chitvelle - My PT attempt

Got some pics from the shop again this morning. Their goal was to have it in primer last friday, guess they missed by a couple days, but not too bad in my opinion.
