I really like everything but that rear roll pan. That truck has a great overall look from the front and side.

Alright here are some updated pictures. I found some 1940 Chev headlights and have begun getting them ready to mold into the front fenders. I only mocked up one for the picture but they are both ready to go.
Sorry for the shitty pictures they are with my cell phone and I can only push my truck so far back or it gets on the sloped driveway and then I can't push it back up by myself and when it is pushed back I can't close the door and the sun shine right in. Hence the heavenly glow behind the truck. LOL

I really like the look of those headlights with your grille. They really flow together nice. Not trying to be a smart-ass, but I think I'd have a few beers and take a long look at the back end. Maybe lose the roll pan and consider some kind of swoopy bumper off a 40s-50s car. Keep us posted!

I know some of you are not fans of the rear and I appreciate the comments good and bad but I have made a few adjustments and I kind of like it so for the time being it is staying. I also have some better pics of the front as I got some batteries.

Back end: I got new stake pockets and added to the bottom of them to round them off and I moved the license plate up into the pan. The fenders are not on right now as it is a tight fit in the garage with them on but I think they will finish it off.



And some new pics of the front.

Hey thanks for the comments. I aprreciate the thoughts on the back end as well. I think with a bumper it would have to be a really simple affair or it would be too hard to tie in without looking out of place. I don't want to hang something out there just for the sake of it being there. I also think anything to showy would put the look way out to lunch for the Westergard era not that I am there now by any means.

37 chevys have always been a fav of mine. i love how you changed the grille so you can tell what it is, only cleaner. the rolled rear i think will work in with everything else when the trucks finished. this is going to be a great truck.

How is your truck coming? Is it possible to get some more pictures of the closeouts that are between the bed and the running board? Thanks in advance...

It's coming along real nice!
I do like the changes you made to the rollpan, I think it works a lot better. I'll be curious to see how the back looks with fenders on.
Thanks for the updates.

Just found your build thread and I think it looks great so far! Wife's grandparents have a 37 Chevy that was rodded in the 70's. Mustang seats, shag carpet, flat bed, CB radio etc.. The bones are all good and just looking at what you've done gets the imagination into overdrive. Don't beat your self up too bad with other people's opinions, you are doing fabulous work. Just build it the way you want and do a good job of it! Bryan

I really like the changes that you have made to the rear end. I think that the exhaust and taillights look good...

The only thing I might think about changing is the license plate treatment. I think that the sharp lines on the platebox are a little harsh and distracting.

Just my thought, it is your truck, do with it what you will.

I am enjoying watching your build!

Looks GREAT! The headlights molded into the fenders are an excellent touch. The rear pan looks better too.

I thought I was the only one crammed into a one car garage, I feel your pain. Most of my pics are from the same angle.

Once again awsome work and keep us updated

Looks awesome! did you have to do any roof work when you chopped it? I have the same truck (not nearly as nice as yours yet) and it doesnt look like there would be much roof work if you lean the a pillars back a little bit. True?
