    scored me a nice windshield frame. hardly no rust. surface mainly. but not plymouth....i bought oonline on egay and was amazingly a 32 ford coupe frame.

    has any other of you mopar guys had such luck? i layed the frame in the body and its a perfect fit. everything matches.

    tacked in the rest of the trunk floors. looks like a mini tub now. lol. bolted the passanger fender on. and mocked up the headlights. i think they look ok but what yall think?

    Maybe its just my vision but the headlight placement seems to make the car look a bit cross-eyed. I can do a "quick &dirty" photoshop for different placement if you'd like. Btw, I'm making progress on your other Photoshop, should have it in a day or two.
    Oh yeah, one question; the ride height shown in #84, is that the actual ride height or is the car on jacks? I wanna place the front wheel but don't know if I need to "lower" the car more.

    yes that is the ride height of the actual car in pic 84. not high at all. its the lowest i can go without running airbags...

    the headlights are going have to be moved. maybe a inch or so farther out to the tires. i dunno. i was just messing around with those because i was tired of welding. several pounds of welding wire to go.

    Here's a kinda rough rendering. Had to go back and snag pics from some of your other pictures and piece stuff together for the background. Hope its close to what you have in mind. I put in the 33 Plymouth headlights but could probably tweak them with a little work. Eli

    project update. i might ditch the blown 354 hemi and replace it with a 270 hemi instead....just depends if it all goes together and fires up with no hicups. if so i will pull the 354 out and take my time with it while the 270 baby baby hemi puts the miles on my plymouth.....
