    WTF? I don't believe I'd do any more work until I settled on a firm build plan and then stick with it.

    Nice to see someone with the guts to cut the shit out of a car and make a radical custom. Hope you follow through and finish it. So many of them get 3/4 done and end up scrapped. Good luck and keep the pictures coming.

    Thank you all for the encouraging comments and likes, means a great deal!!!, this is one I will finish and I fully intend for it to be on the road this summer although as an evolving primer project, main decision I have is weather to go asymmetric on the styling front/rear as it something I have always wanted to do and its only metal.............................[​IMG]

    Another wow. I can see your vision already. Should be a stunner when done. Not too many fresh customs out there pushing the boundaries like that!

    After resting just the roof on and lots of measuring I decided to get myself a doner car and attempt! to use all of its hydraulics,workings and the screen surround, it may need to be a shorter in length but otherwise should be ok, IF it works out I,ll be able to have a fold away top and a removable hardtop, did I mention that this all Quentins fault?

    Very gutsy ! The fact that you're doing this in England makes it moreso ! Not too many '54 Lincoln's left here in the U.S. Finding a donor car in the U.K. ? I hope they have some good "Pick-a-Part" Salvage Yards there, Moon.:)
