Looks great nice done
I'm liking the drip rail.
I really like what you're doing. Big thumbs up on the drip rails. Shaving em off ruins most chops. I admire your restraint. Nice lines and no "cartoon" proportions.
This car just keeps getting sweeter looking.............the drip rails are definitely a plus. I may just have to go out and get a coupe now!!!
He did super nice work on the chop and it looks cool for a custom but personally dig the roof lines on a business coupe, I've altered just about everything else on mine but for me the stock roof lines and the grille is what makes me love these fat bastards. JMHO
I really like the lines on your car! That is one of the best chop profiles I've seen!
Great looking chop. Want to do one more
Thanks again for the encouragement. Made a little more progress in the last couple weeks, should be in primer next week!
Damn that looks BAD ASS brother!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice job man, i am diggin this thing!
keep us in the circle man! we all want to see more! Im all ears.
I moved to the inside and re-sized the window frames. Then on to the garnish moldings.
I dig it. Can't wait to see it done
How much chop is it???? It looks great !!!
Thanks. about 5"
Im just finishing the body work - had to slow done materials are expensive!, and I havent even bought the paint yet. Hope to have it in primer in the next few days and will post up some pics
Gloss or satin? Which direction you going?
its gonna shine. the color is not set for sure yet though.
lots of work done this week, pulled it out of the garage for a progress pic. just a few loose ends left to tie up
Very nice work on a big job!
The car looks great.
Hey Tim.....does your hood fit ?......mine's a bitch....I've bent it all over to get it close, but it's not good....I was just wondering if it's a common problem with 41's.......Also, I took these pix of my car the other day.....What a difference !....2 different styles for sure !.....But they both work....congrats on the new look, I like it a lot.....nice and greasy......

The hinges needed some attention but it was ok. None of the doors or trunk lid fit great, they all took some work. For sure too different aproaches doesnt look like the same car does it? Yours looks great!
Its going to be a killer sled when done,nice crafting on the roof and chop.Keep her coming!
That roof just f l o w s...Keeping that rear window from shrinking too much really keeps everything in proportion.
Love this build!
What kinda shape are the hood hinges in? What's left of the core support mounts, the rubber piece/s?
If the hinges are in good order (no slop), the fenders and hood panel are straight, and the core support is in correct alignment, that leaves the latch.
Bad hinges, bent metal, core support out of alignment & a bad/misaligned hood latch all add up to poor sheetmetal alignment!
