  2. What did you take out of yours?
    Thats the pic in my head, Awesome…..especially since Aaron finished it up.
    Not too much, Not too little…..Just right.

    Bob, I'm not much on build threads but, I'll post some.

    Vertical 1 1/2 A pillar, moved the roof forward to match the posts and dropped the rear vertical 2 1/4.

    The roof is uncut, the rear window I moved up the roof 5 inches. Built the new cat walk from the old roof base line to the roof. Sail panels are not modified or cut.

    There is a whole build thread of it way back somewhere. Follow my profile name or I'm sure Aaron has a link or photos if you need them.

    I agree. I looks fantastic. It's perfect.
     
  4. Well its been cut 2.5"!

    Still a bit of finishing to do, but the profile is there.

    Jeeze....that's really turning out nice
    The trim on the skirts reminds me of Barris's personal first custom

    I thought I should say that the car will be jacked up off the ground when I get it and the airbags more than likely removed as they are a sore point with the authorities .
    It has to have 100mm ground clearance minimum before I can get it registered

    Ah, that's music to my ears!

    You have a pretty good looking car, could you post a picture of the front?

    It would look killer with the front whitewall completely exposed, and slightly lower in the rear.. with the skirt just hiding the steel wheel.
