Hope everthing will work out man!!
Not that I really believe this will help
Years ago when my fiancee dumped me for another guy a real good friend told me
"No matter how good looking she is or how rich she is, some guy, somewhere, is tired of her shit!"
I´m really sorry to hear about your troubles Flop. It can only get better from here.
Cars don't have P.M.S. menopause or multiple personalties!

Sorry to hear about the GF issues.
Deffinetly have enjoyed the build, hope to see more when things settle out some.
things are setteling getting outa this rut. thanks guys the posts mean alot
finished up the rounding of the hood corners
you can only do so much with a shrinker stretcher then ya gotta put some relief cuts
today mission is to try to get this son of a bitch to latch which i dont think is gonna be to fun
Keep up the good work man!
I'm going to win the lotto or inherit some money right before you finish this car... then I am going to buy it from you! Just so you know my plans in advance. This is absolutely one of my favorite builds, EVER!
I just spent close to three hours looking through this thread page by page. This build is incredible. I love the process you've gone through and the many different looks you've tried before nailing the right look (especially on the hood and rear quarters). Photoshop would've been easier and quicker, but you wouldn't of gotten the practice and you can't tell if its right till you see it in person! Your work is inspiring, and the fact that your another one of us "young guns", awesome!
This thread was like reading a really good book (if I read books), there were ups and downs, good times and bad, and a phucking bitch'n pontiac! I can't wait for the next chapter. And if i ever make it back out to pittsburgh i'd love to swing by your shop.
Keep up the amazing work and creativity, you are where I want to be someday soon.
Hail the up and coming "King of Customs"!
You're gonna need to get in line... behind me and I can barely see the front of the line from where I'm standing.
If I sold everything, I wonder if I'd even have enough to have my pontiac hardtop "flopped".
Let a guy dream, Verbal. Jeesh!
thanks guys did a bunch of little stuff on the hood yesterday that needed addressed parts that were at 80 percent finished up . just a little more welding to do on the peak running down the middle. and then onto the latch!
hey you guys blew it who wanted to buy it i woulda taken 12 grand a few months ago no need to hit the lottery for that. but now not for sale again haha.
its starting to get to the point where i can taste the metal work being finished!!
then its off to Bill (slowandlow63) at Moonlight Kustoms in Jersey for the body work!
probably gonna have to get an apt down there for a few months haha!
That's awesome Flop...sometimes it just takes some time to get your head back into something. You'll be so glad to have stuck it out...
what an awesome thread! you make this crap look easy.
Don't worry, there'll be plenty of room in the shop for your Poncho since your taking my shoebox back with you and chopping it right?
I'm down for a little horse trading Bill!!!
Stilll messing with the 49 caddy hood finishing up the body line bunch of other dumb little stuff havent started on the latch yet
should finish up the other side tomorrow
Flop for Prez!
Next up, a thread on chopping shoeboxes?!?
Nice work! Looks sweet!
Keep it up Flop...looking steller...master workmenship
finished up the body line
49 caddy hood with a 53 caddy fender body line on a 50 pontiac make sense?! hahaha
all serious welding on the hood is now done!! now just gotta get the fucker to shut and latch!
I´m so happy you´re back on this. Go Flop!!
Looking good Flop!
