    Body work is finished. My friend was able to nicely blend the Camaro roof body lines into the Magnum roof. I cut down and made some of the original Magnum rear cargo pieces fit. This will also give me a location for the radio speakers. The tinted side glass has been ordered. A final pattern will be made after the car is painted. The rear hatch can still use the original Magnum glass. My Grandsons gave me a big "thumbs up" on my design.
    Today I pulled it out of the barn and drove it for the first time with the new top to the paint shop. I think I am really going to like the visibility the larger side windows provide.
    Last week I also got final approval for the custom license plates I ordered. My buddies at the barn are trying to talk me into a nicer set of Mag wheels. The Camaro was originally an LT1 base model which comes with 18" wheels. I will start by seeing what options I may have for custom wheels.

    Looks great - can't wait to see it all finished up! I saw your '56 at Syracuse but you weren't around. Saw you driving by later but never got to connect. Despite some rain it was a fun weekend - always is!

    Syracuse has always been a nice show. Been to all 18 of them. Had some Family commitments so I only made it Friday this year. Still a great time checking out the rides and hanging with my friends.
    Maybe if I get my butt in gear I can have my 66 2door Nomad Wagon conversion there within the next couple years.

    Paint work almost completed. Rear cover, hatch and rocker moldings still need to be done. I did decide to stay with the original Imperial Blue Metallic color. It should look great with the new wheels. I also ordered the chrome quarter panel trim pieces and may look into a chrome grille.
    Hopefully off to the glass shop later this week and then work on the growing list to finish things up.

    Paint is complete and the Nomaro took a drive to the glass shop for rear glass install and custom cutting and install of the side glass.
