    Man, wish you would have stopped by and said hi!!! The drive up was adventurous to say the least, but made pretty good time and enjoyed the show till I left.

    The thing just "FLOWS"...the thin trim accent from the hood back to rear fender adds sooo much. Always loved the front of these coupes, but from the ass end view, this one is down right sexy!

    I was meaning to I saw your car about 9:00 and 12 beers and 5 hours later your car was surrounded by spectators.. really wanted to check out yourfloor pans, etc.. When I got there at 7:30 it was completely full... It was good seeing your car in person.

    Little update:

    Interior is done and Ive been driving the piss out of it! Had a fantastic adventure to Tijuana, saw our friend Miguel from the Lifters cc and had some great food. Thank you Stefan (Greasemachine here on the hamb). Figured Id post some finished pics, and a cool shot I took on Sunday while cruising with my friend Coulter Jacobs and his Chevy, since we all love pics. Enjoy!!

    P.S. Im in the process now of adding my stainless column and painted (today) my steering wheel to match.

    Thanks man! The Chevy is my friend Jakes car. Very traditionally chopped and static dropped. It's getting a fresh coat of paint as we speak! Nice car!

    Glad we finally got to meet up!! It's always a pleasure to hang out and talk shop with other car people, much less another 40 Plymouth owner!! Hope you liked the ride, and glad you had headroom for how tall you are. Passed the height test.

    My first car back in 1956. Put on duel exhaust amd milled the head (it had a dodge truck engine in it) and kept blowing transmitions. Was a fun car but back then knowone thought of customizing or hotrodding them. Good luck with it.:)

    Great job on the car . I like the way your chop turned out . If you have any more pics of the chop could you post them , i'm having trouble in the c pillar area with mine and would like to see what you did there . Thanks

    I kept it stock. No switch, but I have long arms :D:D

    Thanks man!

    All the pics I have of the chop process, I posted. Theres actually quite a bit of pics from my build, and others here on the HAMB that were chopped well. What kinds of challenges are you having?

    I wanted to see how you pieced back together the c-pillar area . My first attempt at making the piece from scratch on the wheel didn't go so well . Your pics and other's have been very helpful on my first build I just need some more practice
