1964 Impala SS body has paint

I have to say it is an absolutely great feeling when you finally complete a major hurdle in what is a year long project. This poor Impala required a great deal of work. We have replaced the complete floor pan, both rocker panels, trunk floor, both quarter panels, the drivers door, the deck lid, the hood, radiator support core, all of the badges and trim. After this we are going to install a brand new interior. This is no longer just a 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS, this is now a 2015/ 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS.

While we were working on the body, the owner Mike replaced the frame because we discovered that the front cross member had received a hard impact putting a large dent in it, also buckling the right frame rail and cracking the left frame rail. Mike found a replacement frame, rebuilt the steering, front suspension, rear suspension, and the brakes.
