    My other thread was getting old, so here are some new pics of my coupe progress...coming up next, a 4" chop! :cool: The earlier work can be found in my signature. Hope you guys aren't getting too bored of Model A coupe builds! :D

    A final few pics after the body re-joined the chassis. The clutch is now functional as well. It doesn't show in the pics, but I also chassis-blacked the underside of the body before reassembly.

    Well, as promised, I took 4" out of it today...it is tacked, but it will be a lot of finishing to get everything to fit properly still. It does give the car a totally different attitude though! :cool:

    Wow what a neat build. I dont think I could ever get tired of looking at the construction pics. As I was scrolling down at your posts, I was thinking how neat it looked, even stock height. I was kinda glad to see you didnt go for the 3 inch windshield. Its a nice set down without being extreem. I think when its further along it will show the chop you did was the right amount. Super build, well thought out. I dunno, I am enjoying it!

    Thanks for all the great words of encouragment from everyone! I went to the Viva Las Vegas show this weekend, and those extreme chops do look cool sitting in a show, but I don't know how anyone can comfortably drive something like that or see! Besides, I didn't want to deal with all the things that really won't line up when you go more than 4"! :eek: I already have enough stuff to "adjust" to make it look presentable again!

    I haven't posted any pics in a while, so here's some more to prove I am still working! The body and top wood is complete, and the top is filled, and there is a bonus pic of my painted and lettered valve covers. The Chrysler script is the color of my engine block.
