You have a beautiful chopped 3 window there. Thanks for the compliment
Holy shit that's cool! Definitely subscribed, that is a badass car! keep the pictures coming!
Please don't paint it green.
Love the car......hate the spots......
distracts from the smoothness....imo
This is going to be one awesome car. Congrats!
Its such a dark green. It almost looks black until you get up close.
That's cool. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Thanks for appreciating the smoothness. Lol
Drivers side headlight bucket progress.
Love it !
Looking at your car reminded me of this little beauty I saw at NSRA Sacramento 8 years ago.

It’s almost a shame to paint over all that beautiful body work
Love the look of a 36 three window down and dirty
John Wright of custom plating does our chrome and nickel work and I love his 36
Your car is beautiful as is . Don't listen to the naysayers,do it the way you like it. Took a while to get the headlights to look right, didn't it? Stunning.
Thanks for the compliments. Yes it took awhile to get the rear of the buckets to just flow right. Larry killed it again.
I like spotlights on customs.
I think maybe it's just that I like "chrome boobies".
And I like the idea of a real deep dark color that almost looks black except in direct sunlight, no matter the hue...forest green, navy blue, deep deep burgundy...
Great minds think alike.
..Deep, deep copper.. Heh, heh.
Super 3 window! You and Larry have great vision!
Your car looks awesome, like the longer headlight buckets, they add a sense of sleekness.
Keep posting pics.
this 5 window was at the jungle park reunion
"Perfect 36"! Please keep the beautiful Appleton spots. HRM would have this as a cover car back when there were brains there...
and Harry Westergard is nodding his approval!
My first car was a '36 3 window. Chopped 5-1/4", after mistakes.
I was 13, and my mentors said I was 'damned good'. Oxy-acet was the welds and a Vixen file did the shaping over lead. Never let it go to my head, though...
Thanks alot fellas for all the nice compliments. Just wait til you see what we have planned for the rear of the car......
Fantabulous, creative. Wish it were mine.
Kevin Anderson has a really nice 5 window. I've seen this car in Detroit and at the custom car revival.
Big fan of the Appleton spots too. If it was mine it would have them as well. I really want a 39 Standard coupe in this fashion. Nice work and I like the headlights molded in like that.
Don't get me wrong, I like Appleton's, I just like them on a larger bodied custom like the Merc, etc.
This build is one of my favorites to watch even though I know it's gonna be green!
i think its killer!!! and its yours,stay the course!
