    I like your innovation and execution, simple with function.

    Thanks, yes for me form follows function. It has to be usable as I drive the crap out of my old vehicles.

    Do you have a build thread for your sedan? Looks interesting.

    Now if she was in my shop I wouldn't get any work done at all........

    The rendering is similar to how the car will end up, but less radical and more practical. I think I can find a happy medium....

    The happy medium lives just north of Fresno. Tells fortunes and reads palms. :rolleyes:

    I have the frame all smoothed up and ready for primer, just waiting for some warmer weather. Current temp is around zero. DSCN0760.JPG
    Also cleaned up the rear end housing and springs,. Have a bunch of parts to prime.....

    Don't know how much chop you're planning for later, but a serious-sneaky chop would be ~ 1 -> 1 1/2" cut. Or better, even less. Just enough to make 'em stop, look, n say "Wait, What?" :D .

    Yes, I'm thinking 1.5-2" would be about perfect. Biggest challenge I see is the roof is wider at the top and tapers inward as you go down. Mostly at the A pillar. Would have to narrow the roof at the front slightly......which creates more challenges.

    Started building my grille from 1/4" steel rod. It's extremely tedious and time consuming getting all these bars bent right and lined up with each other. Would be simple if they were straight, but the curved bars should look killer.
    11 down, 22 to go!

    Very nice. Those grill shells are at a premium. Guess all the good ones are already on someone's restoration. Nice to see an original being saved and not using a fiberglass repop.

    Thanks guys!

    Now I'm back to doing bodywork. Previous owners have attempted to beat out some dents......using a ball peen hammer or something. Lotta stretched metal.

    Scott, that grille is a work of art. Today is the first time I ran across your thread. Subscribed now so I don't miss a thing.

  24. Just found this tread . WOW , love what your doing .
    I agree with you on the amount of chop . I should have listened to b-bop and do a 3” but no I did 4”and now that I’ve drove it some I’m going to lower the seats as low as I can get them . Keep up the good work .

    The lid is back on, and tacked..........
    I took 2" out, I'm really happy with the look. Pics don't show much difference, but it's a real improvement. Still have a bunch of fitting and welding.
