  7. Do you glue the top part to the bottom where you cut it, or just leave it unattached to each other?

  10. Chopped tops aren't my thing, but this is absolutely fantastic work. I appreciate the attention to detail and the quality of the build.

    It's amazing what they could do back in the old days without the aid of solid modeling and CNC machines.

  25. I was just marveling at how that was such a rust free body and you state the doors are Brookille, so the whole body is a Brookville then?

    Hey Flop; if its not too much trouble, how about showing us a short presentation on the method you use for those fabulous butt welds and incorporate it into this build? I would really like to see what you do in panel alignment and your welding approach to the same. Thanks
