    We Start Door panel, but only the side up, because for all others interior parts a designer is working for do the best

    GREAT build - very nice work. Love the "flow" even to rear skirts. Thought the hood needed to be pancaked - you did it; looks great. Dagmars OK but front grille needs some work. Maybe remove the short vertical pieces? Would also like to see different rear "bumperets", center pieces on rear bumper. Suggest wider apart & angled to flow with line from windows down trunk sides. Hope that makes sense. Know you can build it - I can't. & bumpers not sheet metal, but you could make sheet metal bumperets to fit bumper. Excuse my wild ass ideas.

    In piú vi propongo alcuni esempi di interni. I prossimi che riceveró dovrebbero essere quelli finali ma per ora vi sottopongo i provvisori ancora da sistemare.

    For those of you who don't speak Italian, here's what Google Tranlate gave me for that last paragraph:

    "In more I propose some examples of interiors . The next that I receive should be the final target but for now I submit to fix the still provisional ."
     
  21. This build, along with examples from guys like Rob Ida, solidify that today's Kustoms are better than ever.

    So no couch in the rear seat? The drawings look very cool either way. Reminds me of classic art Deco style. Perfect!

    Not exaggerated Rob Ida, Art Deco and cadzzilla, are the best in custom world. I'm an italian that with some friends are building a car in a garage. Thanks to all

    I used the 55 chevy parking light, and 2 56 chevy front bumpers up front but used 57 chevy rear wheel wells and used 49 buick bumper center for rear license plate. And I like your use on oldsmobile instrument cluster. I like the total theme of your car

    Really, truly Mirko, the fact that you are' just' an Italian building a car in a garage, is what this hobby is all about.

    the build all over is cool, but your thoughts about the gauge cluster tops it all, what a beatiful build!

    maybe i'll see it some day somewhere in Europe.

    it's a big craftmanship you're doing! and never the less you saved a beauty!
