    Car turned out beautiful Hotik. Just found this thread as I'm looking at building an salty Chevy kustom like this and am searching for ideas. How much did you end up cutting out of the top? It's dead-on perfect. Also, molded rear fenders really clean up the car. Beautiful work!

    Thanks Rory. I did cut the 3" from a-pillar and 3.5" from c (difficult to measure). Just look the door window frame - originally it is higher from rear. It was my starting point/view to remove this "factory mistake".

    Look, there is a blue Kia mirrored. It had the same scratches on a same level like my chevy. Poor maneuverability.

    Car is on winter vacation now.
    I have to create new todo list.

    The first thing which I already done was that I put front leafs together like they were - front was rose about 2.5"
    There are a bunch of things to do
    Hopefully I can find time to start job inside the car in this winter also.

    And meanwhile, a picture of which it was before, and now :)

    I would go with the Firestones. They just look so damn good.
    6.70s would suit your car well... 3.25" whitewall.

    You gotta get some solid steel wheels or full wheel covers!!

    Beautiful car man, you've done good!

    Looks good mate
     
  28. OK, now you're cookin'. I have a new set of flippers and 670 x 15 tires that I'll be putting on my 48 Fleetline. I'm just waiting for my rims to arrive. Your car looks, much, much, better now.
