    With all that flowing lines in the front part of the car including the shape of the doors - please make sure the rear does not look too "blocky" or cut off. It needs to swoop or end in something as highly stylish as the front.

    Instead of tearing up the hood, why didn't you get a cheap Chinese aluminum cross flow radiator?

    The hood is torn up to dehump it and add a subtle scoop, the rad will still clear

    1950 Ford front fender wheel openings have a great shape and wonderful rolled edge, making them perfect for seat shrouds.
    EDIT: Kinda like this...

    I believe Kustom7777 tried this on "Telstar". Search his old posts, or better yet, PM him for pictures.

    Moved the trunk forward a couple of inches to lay the spare down, much better angle now, trunk hinges next and match the drivers door to the passenger side............................. [​IMG]

    That is bad ass! Have you thought about making the opening in the fender hip the same shape as the door?

    Made a start proper on the front end, these form the inner front part of the wings, they will go back a bit inside the wings and up slightly then make the outer [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  23. Outstanding!

    I was wondering what you were going to do with that ugly duckling front end and definitely like what I'm seeing.!

    Trying different front shapes, think this will suit when trimmed back as the light buckets, although looking at from this angle am thinking about going asymmetrical...............................[​IMG]

    I'm sure it will change; but as it sits, it reminds me of Gene Howard's ultra-radical Buick.[​IMG]

    OUCH! to the front end.
    Going radical for the sake of being extreme erases the beauty of the front end.
