    I really like your HOT ROD , the back panell below deck lid looks good ,something different. What kind of tail lights are you thinking about? I am also building a 27 T.almost ready for paint.Good luck with your build, and keep us posted..........PINCHER

    Just found this thread and glad I did. Looks like you did a great job on a hot rod you will enjoy for a long time.I have a 26 coupe Ihave had for 21 yrs and still enjoy it. The chop on mine is similar to yours. If you can round up a copy of Rodaction magazine, July,1985 issue,pg 26 you can see it. Happy motoring and keep us posted on any changes you make...............
