Was it hard to do DIY one person?

I've been thinking about doing this..

Thanks

Thanks! Just moved on from my 00RS and there's a 95L and 04 WRX in the family too. We like Subaru.

You will give up and throw it away before you get it done yourself...it won't happen. Another hand is a must, hopefully someone with a little skill. A friend and I did 2 sets of tails before the roof so we're starting to get a handle on the vinyl. But on the lighter colors, the black roof looks awesome.

Sorry for the bad photo and photoshop I just wanted to get the idea across.
Thanks!
I've seen it done before and I think it looks better if you raise the Subaru and WRX up a couple inches from where you have them Photoshopped.

I did my roof last week as well with a gloss black. Definitely recommend two people and a heat gun or blow dryer. You will need someone to help guide you and stretch the/readjust the vinyl. I'm sure it's doable for one but def better with two... Also it's hard to reach the roof well so stools is helpful too



sorry phone pics

Do The cherry blossom red.

If you wanna takenthe easy way out get some red plastidip..it comes out a bit pink ish.

As far as moving them it's really simple. Just take them off and then get some doublesided tape...trim the tape with a blade on the back of the badge amid you're good to go.

Before you do it just have someone Photoshop it in the Photoshop thread I'm members gallery sticky.

If you're in jersey/ny I'll be happy to help.

You should also match the rest of the badges to whatever color you choose.

If you're going to do a clone and not run the original 350.. why not shoot for a big block? Looks like a fun project though; I've always been a fan of the Chevelle.

becuz wintercar, the paint job is terrible also..lol

I originally wanted to strip off everything and just sand them down and clear coat the metal but they wouldn't cooperate

I did manage to do it successfully one time, I need a better paint stripping method

We thought about going with a Big Block, like a 396 or 454 Crate from GM Performance but they are 6-10 Grand the 350 Small Block is in good shape and with a stroker kit being around 1000 we can make a good bit of power just from that. I guess I should say we aren't shooting for a true clone but rather a custom SS. We plan on doing a coilover conversion on the suspension, disc brakes, converting it to a 4 on the floor, and probably some other modernized odds and ends. Its not a numbers matching car nor is it a true SS so we are going to keep the SS look but make some modernizations to make the car enjoyable to drive.

Alright, thanks everyone for the feedback, I'll probably try as soon as I get time off of work. @Jive Turkey Thanks for offering the help, but unfortunately I live in California. Not too far of a drive

Depending on the time I have, since I am preparing to go to college and having to work at the same time, I'll probably go the easy way and plastidip it the best I can, or if I can find the time I'll try to paint them with some heavy duty spray paint. Nice Stage 2 btw

Deleted the passenger side fog light to channel more air to my intake and put the blank panel back on the drivers side. Thinking about putting a STi sticker on the driver's side blank panel like the old school STi's. Anything to keep the intake temps down in this heat helps.

Few pics of the dirty car

I like the idea of putting a non fog light cover on the driver's side. I opened up my passenger side as well. I might do that...

72 SS's also came with a 350, so the big block to clone an SS wasn't the point. It's just that since you need to rebuild part of the motor to bump up the compression, etc, you could spend alittle bit more to find a big block in a junk yard, and then go from there. The other mods sound's like it'd make a pretty good street rod. The old chevy's were fun to drive, but far from being a handling machine.

Did that to my buddy's 08. We used foil dryer ducts for. The fogfight to the intake. And put a yellow halo around the outside so it still glows yellow. I'll post pictures when I have time. But consider doing that instead of just one fogfight and one normal panel....

Yeah me being in my 20's the first time I drove the '72 I was baffled I had to slow down so much to turn. Kind of mind blowing when you are used to the cars that we drive.

I like the way it looks with one fog and one panel... The fog just looks like an intake duct and that's what I'm using it for

Where did you get the foil dryer ducts from? Still need to do that
