    I have a 31 ford 5 window and have been toying with the idea of building a 3 window out of it using sedan doors, I know they make glass bodies like that but has anyone pulled it off and make it look like one of henry's creations? I am not to keen on the way the glass ones look with the rounded door corners and flush fit winsheild etc.. I think they look ok but too street roddish. But if done right I think it could be a pretty neat little car.

    It will look good, provided you get the lines right.
    You can look at making the rear door edges flush too.

    I remember seeing some pics posted last year of some 3 window Model As that Ford built but decided not to produce. They looked good to me.
