    Well,
    We were workin on this really cool roadster for a client, and thought it would look really cool as a tudor. The client loves his roadster, so we just put a roller together in the same flavor to see how it would look. What do you think?

    I'm not a big fan of hoods, but that car looks SICK with one! I think its due to the length of the car. I don't know, but it needs that hood. Awesome job.

    It looks "saltier" with the hood.

    Did you shorten the body? It's hard to tell for sure.

    Looks like we think alike...

    yes,
    i took 2.5 inches out of the body. it was hacked in half with an axe when I started. i wanted nice metal to work with so I cut it back until it was nice.

    Ok Jim i dig those headers with the hood on it! :) You need some old leather straps now to hold that hood on and you have a killer look.

    Killer idea - I love the hood. It looks better with the Tutor body than it does with the roadster!

    - Joe
     
  27. Yeah, the hood hasta stay. The 2.5 inches out of the body helps a chopped A sedan stay in proportion, IMHO..
    Jim does wonderful work...check out the model A he turned into a 3 window!

    Its not the same car, with 2 different bodies. I actually still have the roadster. I agree that the tudor is a little better lookin car, but in person the roadster loos like it goin 80 just standing still.
