  8. I to am building a 30' Chrysler coupe. I took 3" out of the lid & 4" out of the doors. Looks better with the extra 1" taken out of the doors, more uniform looking. The side glass/opening is to tall in my opinion. Mines also channel so I didn't want to take a lot out of the lid.

    I suspect he sold the chassis/drivetrain to a restorer...

    The cost difference between buying plate to box it out and buying tube plus all the labor. It was more cost effective to build a now frame so I could make it the way I wanted

  17. If you go under "My albums" and "club members cars" I have one in there. not a real good pic. I have more pics somewhere, I'm just not a big picture post guy! I haven't worked on it in over a year. I bought out my business partner so I'm in the process of moving into another shop and trying to get that situated, no time to work on it hopefully soon though!
