Thats good news. I see a third tail light has been installed like the Impala. Neat. Try and replace one of the 3 lenses with a white one, it will add a nice touch, like the original Impalas.

Thanks Karl. just the problem that the spacing between lights had to be different from original for the earlier holes in the panel. Neway the middle light will have a white dummy lens. the inner will be brake light and outer parking lights and signal.
Did you like the Rear antenna? Looks cool I think.
And I know the colour is not a Standard from the Chevy range, but My cars are not for Show and Winning Trophies.
The Car will be Parked at My Khandala House and anyone is welcome to go and have a look at Her. Ishan, so when you flying over??
Gogi, I'll be at Khandala on Sunday in case you going there.

Congratulations Scooby uncle!
She's a real beauty. Wish I could do something similar to the Impala in our family.

So, MM3! What say Ishan?

Wow the car looks so close to the Aston Martin's

Nice car.

@Scooby05. Beautiful car, though the white should have been a bit more creamer.

Sorry for the delay in answering boss, was out of town for a while and have only returned last night.

The car looks lovely and i must say justice has been done. One word though, i notice the presemce of a third light and the Biscayne only had two. The third will make it an Imapla and that it is not so IMHO, if possible, please get the third one off. It should be a minor job. Also the light can be kept as an extra just in case you need on in the future for another car
or for replacement (God forbid, what a horrid thought).
Re the White walls, i have spoken to my cousin who was into tyre imports and he says it can be made available from his dealership in Dubai (Al Dubowi Tyres). If you have anyone in Dubai, it will be delivered to him there or else when his container comes (in the very recent future) it will be bought here. Five brand new White walls are all that this car now requires. (please keep only two rear lights like a Biscayne should, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please...)
