    The way you chopped it looks very nice,looks like alot better way than Ive seen some done. I have always liked 41's but never cared for the stock grille shape........but wouldnt care if one was in my driveway. I actually had a very nice deck lid for a car like that but it went with our 37 Chevy coupe in 04 to its new owner.

    You've done a nice job of making a truly well-styled custom from a car that most would find rather plain and not doable in that fashion.
    There is one of these that has been sitting in the parking lot of a big wire rope company on Federal Road in east Houston off I-10 for years, getting oranger and oranger. I don't know why people do this when there are huge warehouses all over the property and the car wouldn't take up much room at all.
     
  23. Totally aced it. Very cool.

    I plan on redoing the grill and do away with the stainless acessories. Just stuck on what to do to the grill. It will make or brake it thats for sure. Smothing the hood out on the sides and i think it will be in gold paint sometime. By the way my TUFFGUY pose was me at 2am ready for the bed to hold me tight till 6am. thank ya all for the comments, any ideas for the grill would be nice.
