    When I read your title, "HEAVY CHOP", I was thinking a 4 inch high windshield. A windshield the same height as a inspection sticker.(NH). Good job, well done.

    You don't waste time. Good chop. The paint you chose looks like the color called medium greystone that's on the Chevyvan I bought new in the summer of '77.

    I think you've done more in a couple of months and posts than I've done in three years.

    Could you tell me about that firewall material. Is this something you stitched up?

    Very well thought out and executed Custom.. When I saw that Rik was in on it, I knew that you were on the right track. LOL
    As a old, long time custom car fanatic I never thought that I would live to see this art form continued like it has in recent years.
    Bravo !!!

    Looks really good. Can you tell me where you got these skirts? I’m looking for a set for my ‘47 Mercury.

    Got the skirts off eBay for a very reasonable price, they were rough and rusty
    They weren’t listed as Ford skirts just universal, but I rolled the dice and it worked out great
    I think they repop them

    Thank you.
    To quote Brian Wilson. "God only knows." I see that one of the people that had it and then listed it for sale still posts adds on here. I have thought about contacting him and asking him but I'm not sure I want to know.
    On to another custom anyways. Chopped and sectioned 49 Dodge Coronet.

    Hey, it's finished.
    Good job. Looks nice.
    I often visually block portions of projects to imagine how it's going to look.
