    That chop looks great,glad to see more people are building pre-war MoPars as they got lots of custom potential.Badass car.

    I see there has been a debate over the Ribs on the fenders. I say extend the Ribs into the rear fender skirts. A little photo chopping and you'll see how far and what pattern looks best.

    merc rear window section closer shot of work rough but got the shape I wanted a little hammer and dolly and a little mud having another 1937 Plymouth roof helped a lot to find some curved pieces for the sail panels since I do not own a English wheel

    A fellow hamber Photoshopped this for me with out the fenders ribs great to see this gets me inspired the get out to the garage and finish this car love the lines on the car certain years of mopars make some nice customs the ass goes forever especially since I move the catwalk section 5 inches i am so stoked to see this sorry guys I like the car without the fenders ribs love that they are signature mo par marks but to me the just clutter up the look trying to stay very simple

    hey Plymouth brothers... I am trying to get my Plym done before I get home from Assghanistan next month... I need 2 parts, a hood and some rear bumber brackets. The car and my paint and body guy are in Cali. The hood flew off on transport and of course they told me to go f*ck myself, they are not responsible for damage. Can anyone help or point me in a direction? I have scoured the net, but not being in country, I can't scour the junk yards... PM me, thanks...

    Looks cool! Consider putting a radius on the on and only sharp corner on the doors. I think that will make it look even better!

    Wow that looks great! Ever since I built my first AMT 41 Plymouth in 1/25 scale when I was about 12, I have wanted one of these, they make such beautiful customs!!

    nice week end to work on the car had to go backwards got inpatient and primered roof when the rain gutters were cut up and warped and grinded thru been trying to repair them all week but rain gutter are very hard to repair the whole rain gutters are in bad shape
    my freind i got the car from was turning the car into a hard top and welded the tops ofthe doors to the rain gutter when I got the car the doors and pillars were cut into over 20 pieces had to rechopped the roof 1 more inch in the rear and 1/2 inch in the front and play puzzle to put the post and doors back togheter not saying it did not look good it looked killer but I relly like the slanted post 5 windows look.I dont like the look with no rain gutters espeacialy the rear window today i am going to cut out the rain gutter and put some 1/4 round rod in relly wanted to save the rain gutter to keep that origanal look but could not save the rain gutters
