    Having tried a 2 door conversion on a 4 door 50 merc body, All I can say is "Man, you make it look so easy". Incidentally I used a 2 door for the roof and doors and cut down 4 door rear doors for the 1/4's.

    Rui,

    Good idea. We can ask Sylvester Stallone.
     
  15. You are badder then Sylvester Stallone.......he needs to ask you. That's some spectacular work you're doing there, brother. Amazing.

  18. I would never consider making mine in to a 2 door. But you've done a hell of a great job so far. The skirts are killer!

    Never thought that could be done without grafting in parts from a coupe - well done! Looks like you had a really solid car to start with, too.

    Can you handle one more compliment? Yes? Well, just let me add my praise for a job very, very well done! Your eye for proportion and metal working skills are very impressive.

    Thank you for sharing the project with us.

    Nice work! It looks like you've done that before. I would have never had the guts to do that the way that car looked. Way to go man.
