    Nice work. Looks like lots of welding and beer.
    I noticed the foreign license plates. Where are you from?
     

  4. I got a really good idea, paint the bitch and drive it.

    Color, well if black was a color I would suggest black but black is actually the absence of color. ;) It would look totally bitchen in Midnight Blue with some Tommy the Greek style striping.

    Here is a link for the uninformed.

  5. Gotta admit I thought WHAT? when I opened this thread but I am impressed with the caliber of work that has been done to this car.

    I agree with Beano,black would look great on the car. HRP

    Black & Blue.
    Where ya'll from?
     
  8. I can see there is not much water where you are at by all the beer bottles around your shop! Oh and by the way I have an excellent Pontiac Flathead 6 to sell here, complete with trans that will pull that crate around quite well if you need it! Going cheap or to the scrap yard next stop!!!

    I like everything you've done so far, the 2 door conversion looks good with good door lengths and proportions and I like the chop as well.

    If you're open to suggestions, I've seen people extend the quarter panel bumpouts further forward, maybe 6 inches or so, and it looks really nice, better proportions that way. They end up about the length of the Chevy quarters of the same era. I would think you could keep the gravel guard in the process if you wanted to.

    Also, I wonder if there's a good way to take the sharp angle out of the top of your quarter window.

    If you can take a clean picture of the car from the side, I could do some quick photoshops for ideas. I like what you've done so far, keep going!

    Here's what it would look like with extended quarters, a slightly thinned out B pillar, and a bit longer rear quarter window without the bend. My photoshop skills aren't the best but this should give you an idea. You've already done a great job so I'm sure whatever you decide to do will be great, these are just thoughts I had.

    Here's the last of the photos for now. 4" in front pillars and 6" in rear. I didn't think it came out to bad for doing it in the drive way. With only a panel hammer a couple of dollys a mig and a grinder.

    Very nice work!! I would paint it a dark red maroon or burgundy color. Not a metallic just a solid dark red. Kind of like this: http://data:image/jpeg;base64,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[​IMG]

    You proved you can make a "silk purse out of a sows ear" Nice job.

  25. Squablo,
    The extended quarter glass is an exceptional idea. Make the roof flow better, looks more like a coupe and less like a limo. Good eye.

    No offense meant to the original build.

    i agree with steppin out on the cranberry color, but those hub caps make me say paint it a candy apple cranberry/wine color, that would be SEXY with all that chrome and those wide whites!
    just my 2 cents.
