    Very cool stuff your doing man! I cant wait to see more!
     
  6. Hey nice work in winterpeg! Here is another idea . Loose the rocker sills below the doors. Extend the doors down to match the fender. Reround the door at the bottom of the quarter panel. That is refered to as a "hollywood" door. That's my take. Hardcore vancouver
     
  7. Threads Like this are why I come here! Keep it up. Can't wait for progress pics.

    not to be a dick .... only thing that gets my eye is it seems like the decklid lacks a little crown for some reason in the pics .... it seems to squished or over "pancaked"

    sorry to bust your balls ive sectioned the deklid on my 50 poncho so i kno how much of a pain it is

    but other then that nice work.

    Great, great work. Gonna lower the hood top any? Taking the 'nose' or 'crown' off the top front of the hood would help the pancake a bit - I like the trunk as is, so a slightly flattened hood to match could tie it all together.

    Nice work....you nailed the chop, I love subtle chops that proportion the car just right like that.

    Don't pie cut the hood! Who did that in the fifties anyway. Your car is looking great, I wouldn't have the balls to section my 51 !:D

    i like the idea of extending the doors down to the bottom! would really break all of the lines that are there.

    I agree with flop about the decklid though also. its just too flat.

    I dig the whole thing and I could never even attempt the section/job you did so much props to you man. Not trying to flame you but give you some feedback.

    I love it and next winter you can plow your driveway with the rear bumper/roll pan !!!!

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

    Well took the knife to the car again after I got the car outside that rear window didn't seem right...

    [​IMG]

    Dropped the rear window and adding filler where it should have gone the first time :rolleyes:

    i was waiting for some1 to comment. I too agree. i think the lid needs to be unsectioned a little bit, it just tapers too much and makes it look a little short and too pointy out back. but otherwise the car is dynamite.

    2 more inches off the top would just put this car over the edge!!! just my opinion, I just feel since you sectioned it 3" it'd be nice looking with a 6" chop all around, proportioning the top just right with the body. but I still love the car/build.

    2 more inches? your out of your mind, that would make it look like some homosexual rat rod "Kuustom"
