    You are my new god! That is the best chop n section job I have ever seen, the proportions are just right. Plus '53-'54 Cheebies are my favorite car, having had a hardtop for nigh on 50 years. Until I saw yours, the old Moonglow was tops! The first version, that is. Saw it at a car show in the mid-50's, fell in love at first sight.

    Really enjoying this build, a very good looking car. What front end kit did you use?
