Hi

My name is Tomas. I have just bought my Chevelle Malibu SS, ( 7:th of jan 2008 ). The car was exported from the US. 1976 / Imported to Sweden. I just have found this great Forum, and it have been very usefull
for me to get the information that I have been looking for.
Since I bought it I have spent 100´ds of hours in the garage. My car was awarded 3:e place in "Bilsport Custom & Performance Show in mars 2008.
Since you probably newer heard of the event, it´s the biggest annual show in Scandinavia with over 80 000 visitors.
It´s a true SS car, built i Baltimore , body tag printed B D, and I also have the original Buildsheet.
( Sorry for my grammatic error, but I hope you got the message right )

Here is a link to pictures of my car : http://www.garaget.org/?car=76782

Best Regards from Tomas in Norrkoping Sweden

Here are some pictures :

* Completely renovation of trunk

* Restored / renovated under, No welding needed, new "Bodycoat"
* New exhaust system. Welded Built by myself ( from headers ----> )
* Engine compartement. All tubes replaced, new paint (black), engine new paint (headers removed/sandblastered, intake manifold / distibuor / starter a.s.o taken of ) New plugs, ignition wires, airfilter, wiper washer tank, hood/ engine sound isolation, vacuum unit + solenoid. electrical wirering "claned up " (lose ends and so on fixed ) New heavy duty batery

I have spent MANY hours of reduceing the sound inside the car. Sound reduceing material on "trunkfloor" , sidewalls in trunk, hood insulator,
Inside the car : Behind the dash, torpedo--->engine compartement, , floor in coupe, under backseat, , backseat---->trunk, shelf, sidewalls in backseat, doors.
Location of annoying and / or rattling noices. Fixed them. The car handles great and feel " solid as a rock"


This is the most of what I have done since jan 7:th 2008
The car was " newpainted " when i bought it. " Lasers traight ".


So what´s next ? Need to replace / rechrome the rear bumper, new shocks and springs, ( not emergency ). New side mirrors..
There will always be something to lay your hands on .
