    Stewart, I saw pics of yours from a show recently, it looks evil - you've done a great job, good to see it finished. Thanks for the words, bob

    I think the reason to some the car looks over chopped is that the picture was taken looking up.I think if another 2 shots were taken,one looking dead even at the doors and one with the photographer standing erect the car might not give that perception.

    Great improvement to a classic style. Now it looks more like a lakes/drag coupe. Excellent workmanship and vision.

    Insert back in place and sat on a new rubber cushion seal, then trimmed with a T-rubber. It'd probably be nice and water-tight for the first time if it wasn't for those 134 holes that are now in the roof

    Did you have someone fabricate the insert for you with the Louvers or did you fabricated yourself

    Wow, real shiney paint! S'pose you'll be getting the interior trimmed next. Going to be a proper grown-ups car........ Nah ;)
    It looks the bollocks.
    Cheers,
