Thanks for the links.

That's some great craftsmanship & metal-shaping talent shown on "the shoum roadster" ... but it appears (at least to me) that the proportions are way off on the rear quarters / wheel wells ...

Fantastic work, France has some hardcore hot rodders! That pickup is amazing.

Love the Chinese wheel, btw !

Your English is better than our French!

The area in front of the rear wheel looks too long. I only noticed it from the side view so it is not that big of a deal. . Nice work!

I fell like a real cop-out now, using a 'glass body, simply because I couldn't find a tin roadster shell.

Feeble excuse.

The French guy simply made his, from flat steel sheet:



or maybe this will work:
